I just came to know about packet writing, which enables files to be written to disc one-by-one, instead of "burning" a whole disc all at once. After some initial searches all I've come up with is:

  • Roxio Creator - includes DirectCD
  • Nero Suite - includes InCD

I'm looking for a functional CD/DVD packet writing software for Windows, without the extra bloat.

Do you know of any?

  • I found a minimal drag and drop Disc burning app at last! See my answer. Its a new version of "Drive Letter Access" compatible with XP/Vista/7. – Robin Rodricks Oct 14 '09 at 5:13

Windows Vista's already got a nice CD Burner. If you use the Live File System Formatting, you can always add or remove files from your discs.

  • Yup. It's built into Windows these days. – bwDraco Jan 1 '17 at 22:10

You can use the Windows CD Burner, i know that it's not the best, but have this feature.



Roxio Burn - drag and drop disc burning in an easy to use desktop widget. (XP, Vista, 7)

  • Drag and drop files and folders directly to a recordable CD, DVD or Blu-ray Disc
  • Files can burn across multiple discs
  • Drop an .iso image onto the widget to burn, bootable discs supported
  • Copy or Erase a disc
