Nero Takes Packet-Writing To The Next Level With The Release Of InCD 4.2

First Ever UDF 2.5 Packet-Writing Software Implementation As InCD Adds DRT-DM, DVD-RAM, And DVD+MRW To Its Ever-Increasing Feature List

CeBIT HANNOVER, GERMANY (March 18th, 2004) -- Ahead Software have announced a major upgrade to its CD and DVD recordable application, InCD.

InCD 4.2 has been born out of a growing customer demand for fast ultra-stable packet-writing solution within an integral digital media suite. Nero’s suite of related products for data, video, and audio creation, is fast becoming a standard fitment with leading peripheral and PC manufacturers. InCD 4.2 expands this even more with true drag and drop, or save within application approach that makes the CD or DVD recording process effortless.

Since version 4, InCD has been through a complete re-write. With the advent of faster CD rewritable speeds and unprecedented growth of recordable DVD, InCD 4.2 has been engineered to the highest standards. Support for DRT-DM will prove indispensable for users of DVD-RW, whilst InCD’s UDF 2 implementations for DVD-RAM, widens compatibility. Mount Rainier DVD has also been addressed with DVD+MRW writing to DVD+RW, and InCD 4.2 now has the first ever universal packet-writing implementation of UDF 2.5.

InCD is a true drive letter drag and drop CD/DVD recording utility. Using Windows Explorer, or the desktop, files can be saved directly to a CDRW or DVD/RW drive in the same way you would save to a floppy disk. Likewise in open application such as word processing or spreadsheets, accessing the Save or Save As commands, will give the option to save directly to CDRW or DVD/RW, without ever having to open a separate recording application.

“InCD 4.2 represents a turning point in CD/DVD packet-writing history”, says David Burg, InCD’s Project Leader at Ahead Software AG, “We’ve worked tirelessly in delivering optimum compatibility and stability across all Windows platforms. The result is a strong bridge over the gap between rewritable CD/DVD, the OS, and everyday applications”. “I honestly think we can be justifiably proud of our achievements.”
