comment Bash Script to repeat every word in a line?
That is not a Bash script. Invoking some command (even from a Bash shell) does not consistute a Bash script.

comment Replace \r\n with newline in Notepad++
Does that work in newer versions of Notepad++? Or does it require selecting the option "Extended (\n, \r, \t, \0, \x)"?

comment Converting CSV to fixed-width in Notepad++?
OK, in Notepad++, selecting the option "Extended (\n, \r, \t, \0, \x)" makes it work.

comment Converting CSV to fixed-width in Notepad++?
Literally using "\t" does not work, neither in Notepad or Notepad++. It is always a challenge to use a TAB character in a dialog. A common work-around is to enter a TAB character in a document, put it into the clipboard by a cut (Ctrl + X) and pasting it into the field in the replace dialog.

-1. Converting it into a TAB separated format does not make it a fixed width column format.

comment Copy files from FAT32 to NTFS, preserving date
Internet Explorer is not the same as Windows Explorer (commenting on a comment, but perhaps "Explorer" should be expanded in this answer to avoid any ambiguity(?)).

comment Will an external USB DVD writer perform the same like an internal SATA DVD Writer?
Are you sure the 48x is with respect to the base DVD speed (10,800 kbit/s)? Couldn't it be with respect to the original CD-ROM speed, 150 kbit/s? (Although that would put it below the DVD speed, x70.)

If it is below 2 GB it can either one. It could be FAT32.
