DVD writing soft for 98


I need to find a free CD/DVD+-R/W program that runs on 98SE.

DeepBurner hasn't worked out very well.

What would you suggest?

Hiya, no problem here. The links below will take you to the websites where you can select Free burning which runs on Windows 98

You sure? Neither of those says they'd run on 98...

Should I get a particular older version?

The above I searched for and both stated they supported Win98.

You could download it and then use the
Program compatibility wizard from the All Programs / Accessories to run it as it were a Win98 program, worth a shot at least

At least the versions on those links wont even install.

Now correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't compatibility wizard a XP/Vista(/7?) feature for running older programs?


Still looking...
(though I noticed my DeepBurner wasn't latest version, have to try it, but I'm not very optimistic that it's improved decisively from 1.8 to 1.9)

I'm running Windows 7 and XP Pro. XP Pro will allow me to revert back to a Win98 program still, but 98 is vary dated now but I will still look around for you for a suitable and stable program when I get home from work today, which will be around 5-6pm (UK Time)

Just realized what I just said here emoticon

How can you revert back to 98 version if the one you have now is a Win98 version emoticon

How's the hunting going ?

Re: DVD writing soft for 98


After all the messing around I'm starting think I'll have to go back to DeepBurner and live with it.

ImgBurn is good for number of things, but seems to lack practical multisession feature.

Re: DVD writing soft for 98


My original main problem was multisession and still is.
Deepburner writes OK, but the PC (and oddly also my DVD player) can only see the files of first writing/session. DP itself is the only one that knows there's more files there.

It did the same with CD and I've since burned CDs on other program on other PC. But such CD worked fine on other computers and somehow I've gotten it to work on this too (I don't remember if I wrote something to with other program).


A related problem: the PC I'm trying to use doesn't (W98 that is) recognize a DVD-R/W; it thinks it's a 2gb CD emoticon
But it reads them fine except for the problem above.

Anyway how do I create a DVD file type? Or what else could I try?
