Am using Adaptec Easy CD Creater and Adaptec Direct CD for cd-cd copy. It burns 95 percent of the time successfully, and if I am burning something from orininal disk (ie games) I use the test first option which has never lied to me about whether the process would work. I also have a 4x/2x/6x external Sony Spressa, which i have had longer, and it is a usb connection, and i use it with PII 300 laptop that has 128 ram and running windows Me, has 6.5 gig hard drive. I use adaptec products on this computer too, the sony hotburn, nero, and cdwin3a programs all gave coasters on a regular basis. I make copies of everything, from audio cd's, downloaded movies, program discs, games. Even OS cd's, linux, mandrake, windows Me beta, and other things I doubt I should disclose. At anyrate, Adaptec only program taht has worked consistantly, and the test feature like I said, has never lied. One thing that all my sucessful burns have in common, I did not have anything else running on computer when I did the burn that might use up system resources.
