Hi Tyler,

I was the one who mentioned DirectCD on BeBits talkback.

The problem I have is I only have one monitor, and the CD-R is in the 
other machine. I did plug it in the other day, stuck a blank in, 
initialised it for Direct CD, and copied a file across. Ejected and 
selected to "leave as is", and switched back to this machine (the new 
one). I've only got a DVD in this box, and the drive didn't recognise 
it as a disk at all - lit up for a couple of minutes before reporting 
"no media" in both windows and BeOS.

I will do some more experiments and try and get some images to you
