Re: CD Burner
I don't think you can save your data that way like a floppy or flash memory can. You'll have to burn the whole document over to the CD again instead of modifying the original document. In my opinion, CDs are good for mass storage, but not homework, lol. I use my thumb drive or SD card. I've got one of those built in flash memory readers than can read pretty much any type of flash memory available. So neat to have. I can get pictures directly off of my digital camera without using the USB data transfer, or get access to the PDA without using the cradle.
