Drag To Disc

Recommended Posts

I hope i have posted in the correct part of the forum but i am sorry if i have made a mistake as it is some time since i last visited.

 

 

I have been using drag to disc software that was e-mailed to me by Dell as a replacement for dla which i have on a disc as the dla was giving me trouble.

My pc crashed so i had a new hard drive fitted but i have now lost the drag to disc software that i used for my photo,s

I have copied and burned family photo,s etc onto dvd-rw,s but am now unable to open them as i do not have the software that was used to burn them to dvd.

Can someone please advise where i can get another copy of the software or something else that i could use in order to access my dvd,s.

 

Many Thanks

Contact Dell, they supplied the software.

Your post has nothing to do with MusicLab.

 

Packet-Writing (Roxio's Drag2Disc, Sonic's DLA, Nero's InCD, etc) is notoriously incompatible between different programs, and even different Versions of the same program. It is also an unreliable way to do long-term archiving, altho for transferring files when the original file is on the originating computer it is tolerable (Flash drives - aka Pen / Thumb / Keychain / Jump drives - are probably as good or better).

 

RW media is great for testing, because if something doesn't work it can be erased and re-used; if it works, copy to R media. However, RW media is EXTRMELY unreliable for long-term archiving.

 

You may be able to recover your files with a recovery program such as ISOBuster (www.isobuster.com) or cdroller (www.cdroller.com) - both have a "trial" version which allows you to see if there is anything recoverable, but you will have to buy the program to recover the files.

 

For things you want to KEEP, use a Sessions-based program like RecordNow Data Disc, or Roxio's Classic Creator, or WinXP's built-in burning.
