Re: [BKARTS] printing photographs-Adaptec DirectCD

I use Adaptec DirectCD for writing to my own CD-RW disks. It's so easy, just
like using a floppy disk. I can delete files and copy new ones to the disk
over and over without reformatting the CD-RW.

Is Adaptec DirectCD not a popular method for writing to disk? Does everyone
have to choose that option to write the disk so anyone with any old CD
reader can read them. If so why isn't the Adaptec DirectCD type reading and
writing the defacto standard? It's so easy. Does your printing shop or for
that matter some other printing shops take disks written with Adaptec
DirectCD, Silver MayKitten?

Yes, I agree that the CD-RW is a better deal but the
CD-RW must be reformated if major changes are made.

My shop takes both the 100MB and 250 MB Zips, abut we
are a little leary of taking CD's of any kind. Many CD
users do not understand that when they "erase" a
portion if a CD-RW that portion of the disk becomes
unavailable for reuse untill the disk is reformated,
and press on. Also many CD providers do not preflight
their CD's, and argue with you when you tell them that
files are missing.
