That's pretty neat but I would rather have a normal thumbdrive .

Ditto, saves alot of CDs since, now that Raffaz made notice of it, you can't free up space on it. Although it works nice for multi-session backups.

He's correct.............
I haven't tried it yet but if you check out the formatting options on the CD/DVD burner drive this is what you get..........this is with a CD-R disk!

**You left click on the drive with the blank CD-R installed then you click on formatting options to get this menu.



Did I mention Vista is awesome!

When I insert a blank disc, one of those things happens:

(a) I get a BSOD. (most frequent)
or (b) Nothing happens. Then, when I click on my burner's drive in Computer, it says to enter a disc.

Okay I tried it.............

Looks to me you can add files and you can delete files just like a flash drive.............but, you keep chewing away at the total space available.
So, once you've added and deleted the maximum size of the disk your done.

Kind of cool anyway...........but definitely not the same as a flash drive.

You can add to my rep for all this work!

Il check it myself later when i get time, its got to be using up more and more disc space, im going to bed now. I know you guys like vista, but it cant do something thats impossible. I know its good but its not that good

EDIT

Awsome. Once Raffaz mentioned it about the CD-r now being re-writeable i kinda figured the space would run out. were you able to add/remove on XP? or did you not try?

Lol and i already did after the first one.
