I use Vista Home Premium and just wonder why you have to format a new cd-rw disk before you can burn files to it? And are cd-r disks the same? My pc uses the only one 5.25" optical drive to read, write and play cds and dvds like most new pc's. But I guess it's not the drive, it's Vista, right? Of course with XP I never had to prepare a blank disk for burning. Just Drag and Drop and it's ready.
I did a cd-rw format with Vista a few days ago and it took about 10 minutes. That seems unnecessary. A waste of time to get one ready for burning files. Is there a way around this? Simple question I know. I would prefer a quicker way if possible. Appreciate the help. MP
