cdrw for amiga?!

Just picked out an old sony cdrw from an pc i had lying around and put it into my amiga4000, was a tight squeeze but it fitted after some fiddeling with the ide cables. Now to the question, is there any good software for (1) burning cds on the amiga? I prefere free but comersial is also nice. And (2) is there any cdrw support in any of the programs?


Regards

No free one that I know ....

But you can try MakeCD Demo (Aminet) and BurnIT Demo (Aminet ???) ...

You can burn your CDs with it but speed is limited and the name of the CD may be "UNREGISTERED"

I had a cdrw running in an 030 a1200 and it was dire!

I ran MakeCD and had to burn discs at the slowest possible speed, with varying results. I killed a lot of cds

I wouldn't recommend it. I ended up using a 100mb zip instead.

I had quite good experience with my A4000T, MakeCD, and a SCSI Yamaha8424 RW. Had very few problems. For a long time the Yamaha was in an external box and I swapped it between my Amiga and my PC, no problem.

Ah well, could have just been problems with my setup then, I did have successfull burns but more often than not the discs became super shiny coasters.

I suppose if you've got it all set up, just give it a go, can't hurt to find out!

Both MakeCD and BurnIt support writing of CD-R and CD-RW as well as deleting CD-RW. There is no support for formatting CD-RWs (aka packet-writing; like InCD) yet, though.

There is a free writer software which even supports writing DVDs (with a DVD writer of course). IIRC it's called Frying Pan.

I have an atapi LG cdrw drive (48/24/10?) running in an 030/50 A1200.

I run MakeCD to backup data from my HD to CD-R or CR-RW and I had very very few
problems.
The speed is slow but no so slow. It burns at a speed about 6x/8x (in writing or
rewriting mode) using the internal buffer of the drive (8Mb).

MakeCD is the only software supporting my drive, but in my opinion it is not easy
to use.

Frying Pan is commercial ....

Not quite. It's shareware and even supports DVD burning on classic Amiga set-ups. Amiga developers like the Frying Pan author are well worth supporting. Here's the Frying Pan website for those interested. The commercial version of MakeCD DAO is also quite good. Well worth it if you can pick it up on the cheap.
