For drag and drop, Nero has a packet writing piece of software on the cd called InCD (it's on every Nero cd I've ever seen, I'm assuming it's on the one sager sends) and it allows drag and drop stuff. In WinXP it has a pseudo-drag and drop interface that allows you to essentially do that except you have to click burn to the cd when you have finished putting everything on the cd (It actually gets copied to a temp directory first and then when you hit burn it gets burned on). But you can't erase parts of the cd like you can with packet writing on a cd-rw. In any case, I have used it in the past but now I just use the WinXP one when I need it. NightShade doesn't like them, I've never had any problems with them except that you can only use those formatted cds as drag and drop in computers with that software running in the background. Otherwise you can still read them in any modern computer.
