      I just wanted to add to the conversation that not ALL Packet
      Writers support writing to CD-R media (versus CD-RW media). In
      fact, this appears to be the NORM, not the exception.

      Also, I have used a 1999 edition of Veritas Backup Exec and it
      would NOT recognize my IDE CD-RW nor my USB ZIP drive. That was
      the last Veritas I intend to purchase; I absolutely could not
      determine from their retail box nor their web site what EXACTLY
      was supported as back up devices before purchase. It looked good
      to me. I was disappointed.
