Sharing Directcd Between Laptop And Desktop in Easy CD Creator 4 and 5 Posted February 25, 2006 · Report reply Hello, Direct CD used to be very good for the job you're trying to do, back when disk drives were "dumb" and did only what they were told. In those days they did exactly what the software told them to do (if they could) and they all formatted discs the same way. Now disk drives have been made "smarter", and they each do their own thing regardless of the instructions they're given. The result is what you've found - rarely are two of them the same. The best thing you can do is "erase" your CDRWs. A quick erase should do it without having to do a full erase. That should bring back and discs you have "lost". Then use CD Creator in a data project to write a "session" of files on a disc. Close the session but not the disc. This should allow you to transport the files to the other machine, and write another session with that other machine if you want to for transport back to the first machine. There is advice in the help files for writing sessions. When the disc gets full you can erase it again and re-use it.
