Drag & Drop Files Onto Blank DVD's in XP
This sure seems like an incredibly simple request, but likely red-face aside, what would be a way to implement the ability to drag and drop files through Windows Explorer in XP onto blank DVD's? CD support is native, but having used mostly Nero except for our new Vista systems, in which DVD writer support is native for data format, I am unfamiliar with a way to implement the ability to use DVD +/- R's with Windows XP's file system explorer.
The Dell laptop that needs this ability has Roxio, which claims Drag & Drop capability, but attempting to do so both through Windows and through Roxio's little D&D window near the system tray fails. I can, however, write to blank DVD's without issue on this system using Roxio's Data DVD creation interface.
Before I dig further for a solution this afternoon, are there any suggestions?

I tried the same thing a long time ago and had the same problem. As I remember, I found out DVD's don't work like the CD's do in Explorer. Have Roxio as well. I did not find a solution.
The final legacy of the United States will be that in the end liberalism shamed & destroyed the heritage of this great nation. How sad as I see no turning back. When in Rome ..

If you have more than one burner, you're out of luck because you can only select one at a time as a Windows recorder.
Drive Properties > Recording > Enable recording on this drive.
You have to select that each time you switch drives.MCSE, MCP and nut job

It's only the internal burner on the laptop.

look inside it for a folder called InCD
load and run the files in there... one of them will trigger it.
I'm not saying this out of ignorance, but rather, every single DLL etc had to be loaded before mine ran. But it make the disk behave AS a HDD once you FORMAT the disk.
