Roxio Drag-to-Disc

What is Roxio Drag-to-Disc?

Drag-to-Disc lets you copy or delete large amounts of data from a disc just as you would use a floppy disk. Copying your files with Drag-to-Disc is a simple three-step process: Insert the disc into your recorder. Add files to the disc with Drag-to-Disc. You can add as many files to a disc as the disc will hold. You can also overwrite files, delete files, and create folders to organize files. Remove the disk. You can add any kind of file to a disc, including folders. Before files can be added to a blank disc, the disc must be prepared (formatted). Adding files to a blank disc either formats the disc automatically or presents you with formatting options. Formatting a blank CD-RW takes between 25 and 45 minutes.
