2 weeks old story:
DirectCD will not work with perfectly good CD-RW medias:
I have had so much stress and trouble over this software. It came bundled with my LG burner, so it was the last thing my mind could think of checking.
The problem was, that every CD-RW media I put into my burner was rejected with this message:
"bad or unsupported media"
I thought, it was my burner, that was bad, but nowhere could I get a working answer to my question: "Is this acceptable?". The best I got was: "maybe bad media try other brand".
But finding other brand CD-RW media took days of searching 8 different PC stores and several super markets - days of feeling unsecure, if I had just bought a piece of crap. As I had allready had a bad Lite-on burner, I knew it would not look good, if I wanted this one swapped too.
A friend of mine took one of my "bad" medias and "nursed" it with InCD - she could use it in her Acer burner. Could it realy be true, that I had to live with the fact, that my burner would only deal with sertain "tested-to-work-with-LG" medias?
Now I have installed InCD, And My burner is happy to eat every single one of those "bad or unsupported medias" - even the one, that would make my sytem freeze untill ejected.
I can't believe, that LG has chosen to ship their Burners with this Bad Bad software.
Just wanted to warn people!
