Hi,

I currently use the Roxio CD Creator 5 to format a CD for transferring data onto it.

The system i am working on needs to have the CD formatted with this software and will not work with others.

I need to find out what exact format it is formatting the CD into so that i can upgrade to a later version of software as the CD Creator 5 is quite old.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

I have an old control system which needs the disk formatted this way so looks like i will have to find a copy of roxio creator 9 or some other software that will use this format.

Do you know of any readily available software that uses this format these days?

Ok so am i right in saying the format type of roxio creator 5 is UDF format?

And therefore Windows 7 live file system which uses UDF should work fine?
