Ricoh MP7040a software?
I have been reading many of these posts and have noticed that some users are using different software for this model. I have seen some who use Nero and Adaptec. I just purchased one and it came with PacketCD and WinOnCD. Is it a regional thing? How come everybody seems to have a variety?
Some, like myself, already have the software
and save money by getting the bare drive.
If I understand your question, you are asking if each cd burner uses proprietary software. The answer is no, once you install the drivers, you can use most any burner software.
software is more a matter of what the retailer can sell the cheapest with the burner. I have tried several different ones and about the only differences is in the interface, they all seem to have the same features.
