Yes, I know how to do this, but I've a particular problem for which I would like a solution.
I save pictures I like as I run across them and download itunes songs when I run across or think of one I particularly like.
What I want to do is save each picture or song to a CD as soon as I download it.
OK, I use Easy Media Creator from Roxio to save my pictures. But to do that I have to start EMC, find the picture, get it to EMC, tell EMC to import the stuff already on the CD, and then burn the new file. It's a bother to do this with every picture I save.
I thought I could do the same (using EMC) with every itunes I download but no, itunes has an m4p extension, and EMC says: "Sorry...can't work with that file type."
OK, itunes will let me burn a downloaded song to a CD--it converts the m4p file type to mp3 or wav or something so it will play in my car CD player or many CD players. Well, that method saves it to disc, but now I cannot add any more songs to that CD--kinda' wasteful.
What would be ideal is an oversize floppy where I could just copy pics and songs so easily--I don't think it complains about file types--and you can just add stuff at will--no problem) and then when I had 8 or 10 or 20 files, I could transfer them all at once to my one CD where so far I've saved everything. But you see, to save allon my HD until I get 8 or 10 or 20, has left files vulnerable to loss if something goes wrong. That's why I want to find an easy way to save them as I get them.
There used to be an oversize floppy or something very similar, but I forget what it was called. Don't know if such still exists.
It would have to go where my floppy drive is now for I'm using both IDE primary and secondary connections on my two channels.
Are there such devices as supersize floppies? Or what is the solution I need? Is there a practical one?
