I use my burner to transfer files by burning what I need onto a CD-RW, taking it to someone's computer, erase the CD-RW, repeat. I have found this to be a great way to transfer large files to other PCs. The old way of carrying my parallel zip drive around really sucked! I'm finding that after about 5-10 burns on a CD-RW it's history. Does this make sense? Also, does anyone have any brand recommendations for good CD-RW disks.
