CONFIGURATION ANNOYANCES

IDENTIFYING UNKNOWN DISCS

The Annoyance:

I inherit all kinds of unidentified blank media and it drives me crazy. For example, how do I know if I have an 8X CD-RW disc or a 16X CD-R disc?

The Fix:

Download and install Erik Deppe's Nero InfoTool 2.21 (http://www.cdspeed2000.com). This powerful utility reveals an extensive array of information about your optical drives and media. Simply insert your blank disc in the drive, launch the program, and then click the Disc tab to see everything you need to know about the disc (see Figure 6-1). The utility also helps you identify information about the optical drive hardware and software.
