For Take Two to work ideally, your drive must support
packet writing and you must have DCD installed...to do it.

Subject: DirectCD 3.05 blues...
Date: 12/19/01

I'm using Win 2K sp2 and ESCD 4.04 / DirectCD 3.05

About every third time I write to the Pioneer CD-RW drive
via DirectCD I get a message saying there's been an
unrecoverable error. If I try to access the CD drive,
it hangs the OS.


If you're writing fixed-length packets (to an erasable),
you may have discovered as most others have that

the format is very fragile and unreliable.

Did the "format" -- the scam artist's slimy euphemism for the UDF
STANDARD -- change for the worse between (9/1/99) and (12/19/01)?

You appear to be writing fixed-length packets, recognized to be by
far the least reliable and most fragile format available for CD.

In fact, I use erasable media only for test; they tend to be
forgetful. However, written in packets they're worse than merely
unreliable for some files; they are likely to cost you the whole
disc.

The issue is not the software but the format.

I do not recommend writing fixed-length packets

because the format is unreliable in practice.

That has little to do with the software.

Yes, overwriting will work on a fixed-length packet disc until
it fails. However, that's likely to be sooner than you would
wish and the approach is at best foolish.

Writing 50 MB of data and ~13 MB session space means about ten
sessions on a disc. If you splurge fifty cents on a quality blank,
you are wasting - absolutely throwing away to no purpose at all -
a nickel's worth on each.

Hey, what difference does it make if the erasable goes bad
unexpectedly and all your data are lost? You've saved a nickel
a day. That's certainly worth more than those files, right?

Bottom line: what you "know" ain't so. It's advertising hype
having no relationship to the experience of those who have
tried using fixed-length packets.
