I just installed EMC 10 but I noticed that drag-to-disc is nowhere to be found. Is this normal in this version?

 

EMC 10 does not have Drag to Disc. Roxio dumped it.

I like that better than V 9 where you had no choice not to install it, then have to uninstall it.

 

Could there be a demand to sell it as a standalone for folks who want it?

 

cd

I suppose that there could be. I wouldn't be one to make that demand.

Not a lot of point considering that Vista has a built-in packet writing system for CD and DVD - about time MS took some of the flak with packet writing problems :lol:

Not a lot of point if you're running Vista, that is...

 

However, there must be a lot of people who haven't rushed into Vista, and for those XP holdouts who don't have EMC9, a standalone D2D download would not be a bad idea.

It would also be nice if there was a version of the EMC9 installer that gave the option to install only those components not in EMC10.

Even the new Nero 8 has done the same with there Incd (same or similer to D2D) and dropped it in there vista cert new programe, so i think people who do use drag to disk apps should be aware

Yes, one of the new advantages of EMC 10 is that you cant loose all of the data you wrote to a D2D disc because they dont allow you to write to those discs anymore.

And that, IMHO is great!

WoW!! :o I can't believe Roxio pulled the Drag-To-Disc software from EMC 10. In EMC 9 I use Drag-To-Disc 90% of the time in Windows XP and Vista. I don't use and like the Windows XP/Vista packet writing, it's flaky all the time.

 

Also, I don't hardly use Creator Classic to write data to blank CD's.

 

I'm just glad to know this before I buy the new EMC 10 and I will stay away and never buy this software, It's my choice. I will stay with EMC 9 forever just because I can use the Drag-To-Disc software with no problem in both Windows XP and Vista.

 

Long live "Drag-To-Disc" :P

XP doesn't use Packet Writing - it uses Session and it's a lot more reliable than packet

 

ALL packet writing is flaky

But Vista does have built-in Packet Writing. I wonder if it also has the same Session writing capabilities as XP?

I loved D2D as well until I lost some data that was worth several hundred hours of work to me. I cant even put a monetary figure on it. You better make sure you have backup copies of all that data.
