You don't format it at all

 

Formatting a CD is ONLY used for drag and drop packet writing operations and, as Drag to Disc was dropped from EMC 10, it's not an option

 

Anyway - it's a guaranteed way to lose data if your intention is long term storage. Far better to use either an external hard drive or a pen drive for transferring or burn to a data CD if for storage

That function was removed in the last version (EMC 10).

Go into the search (top right on this page) and type in packet writing (thats what D2D uses).

 

There are many,many post's that explain the pitfalls of using D2D, read for yourself.

What you haven't been told is that you don't have to format a disc to write data on it.

 

Very briefly, there are two ways to write a CD-RW disc:

 

(1) you specially format it with a 'packet-writing' program like Drag-2-Disc, and then drag single files onto it. You have made a special type of disc, and can have compatibility problems trying to get it read on other machines. Your CD-RW disc will also 'wear out' a lot quicker than normal.

 

(2) you use an 'authoring' program such as Creator Classic to write groups of files or 'sessions' onto your unformatted CD-RW. This produces a standard CD-ROM disc which can be read in any PC. Although each session is 'closed' on completion, the disc itself can be left open so you can write more sessions until the disc is full. To re-use the disc, you 'erase' it and start again.

 

While formatted discs are very useful for some relatively restricted purposes, most of us here would recommend you use an authoring program with unformatted discs, writing the disc in sessions.
