    1) Not that I would and certainly never have, but when ' others '
    have utilized demo software/shareware for beyond the extended time limit, how do they do that? Where does the maker stick his/her mark? Registry or Data Files?

    2) I just got my first cd-rw and the nero that came with it doesn't work as it should. When it tells me to select a recorder, all that will work is the image recorder. The other one, the ' one that allows cdrw to function; only gives ' software must be bundled with cdrw for this to work ' message. Bummer. The cdrw is the cheapest of them all, Optorite Cyberdrive, 39.95, so my question is which software should I try or buy. I've downloaded three, none of which are Roxio or Nero, but have yet to try one. Iomega's looks like a real honey, but no trial :)

    Still waiting to copy one data and/or cd,

    PSP, Poco Mail, and DeskNotes )

    1) Most people do this with a crack program and we won't go there on helping you locate one. Some programmers write it into a dll that is installed in a hidden location and is not removed when the program is uninstalled. Others do make a registry entry that isn't removed either.

    2) I am not sure what your problem is. Detecting the recording device should be only done when the program is initially run. I am also not sure what you are referring to as "image recorder". I use Nero all the time without any sort of error or problem.
