How can you store files in CD the same way you store it on a floppy disk?
Mazelle Aug-24-01 01:35 AM
As you all have known the fact that floppy disk can only store 1.44 Mbytes of information, is there any other way you can save or store information on a cd instead of a floppy disk. In so doing, you can always refer to the files that you save, the same way we have come to use a floppy disk. Thanks

PLZ help me!

Sure, if you have A CD-RW (read/write) drive. Most of them come with software that can store files to a CD like a hard disk. Music CDs are different. Larry

Thanks for responding to my message! Yeah, i have CD-RW and i burned it (under Direct CD), but i can't seem to open the files that i burned onto the CD. Whenever i put the CD into the CD drive, nothing happens...please help me. Is it because i have an old version of CD-RW (v. 4.0)?

Whenever i put the CD into the CD drive, nothing happens... Why should anything happen? Nothing will happen unless there is an autorun.inf file on the CD or the CD is bootable and you configure your computer to boot to it. To see the files, look at the CD with the Windows Explorer. Larry

You might try downloading and installing the UDF reader to do what you want.

It worked for me.

A file is a file. The file(s) could be corrupted or locked. Larry
