Fixed-length packets...maintain the directory information
in RAM while the disc is in use ...

When you remove a fixed-length packet disc after having
written anything to it, the directory information is written
back from RAM.
======================

Are you sure about that, Mikey?

If the computer's RESET button is pressed while the disc is in use, it
would then be a disaster, wouldn't it, Mikey?

the directory information is transformed and written back to the disc.
Therefore, from the time you change something in the (RAM) directory
until that writeback, you can lose the directory if you have a
failure. That failure can be a power transient or a system lockup or
even forcing the disc to eject (in spite of the lock) using hardware.


I don't believe this is true with the latest versions of DirectCD (I'm
using 2.5d with Win98SE).

I've watched the disc write lights on my Plextor drives when ejecting a
DirectCD CD-RW disc, and the drive never does any writing at that time.

Once, in an attempt to prove this, I wrote a bunch of files to a
DirectCD CD-RW disc. As soon as the write pulses ceased,

I pressed the computer's RESET button.

After the computer restarted, the CD-RW disc was fine, and all the files
I had just written were fully accessible.

Even when all the data have been written, the write is not complete. For
reasons discussed in the primer at my site, the directory information is
not written until the disc is ejected.
======================

In that case pressing the computer's RESET button will surely result in
a disaster, won't it, Mikey?

forcing a fixed-length packet disc to be released with
the button on the drive is an invitation to disaser.

It should always be ejected through software so that
pending writes including the directory are completed.

DCD 5.x allows hardware ejection, but even then it is
*very* bad practice.
=====================

Hardware eject is a *very* bad practice, yet DirectCD 5.x allows it!
Do cRoxio programmers specialize in *very* bad practice?

One more reason to add that to the ****ty list:

cRoxio Programmers are ****ty

How about pressing the RESET button? Surely, wouldn't it be
worse than the *very* bad practice, Mikey?

Difficulty in formatting an erasable is most often due to the medium,

is written and read back; if the error rate is excessive, the sector is
retried, then retired ...

Note that errors increase with erase cycles; the practical limit is far
less than the theoretical 1000 cycles.

It could be an erasable wearing out. Don't believe the

I seem to recall reading somewhere that if 2 separate burners are hooked up,
it is possible to record different discs at the same time. I think that it
involved duplicating the software used to burn the CDR and choosing the
appropriate burner/drive for the respective disc being burned.

Of course, in trying to find a Usenet article concerning this, I found
nothing! Did I imagine this? Much thanks for any help!

If you have multiple burners and running OS X then you can do both
multi-burning and multi-copy. You can download a trial of Dragon Burn
@ www.ntius.com.
