Originally produced and distributed by Adaptec, it was most recently produced and released by Roxio. This application is no longer available or supported.

All comments about DirectCD.exe:
directcd.exe is a part of Adaptec (now Roxio's) Easy CD/DVD Creator. This is packet writing software which allows the user to write and delete to CDs and DVDs as if they were a normal drive. This program is a non-essential system process, but should not be terminated unless suspected to be causing problems. LaJmOn

The driver is called something else, NOT DirectCD.??? Vanessa Campbell
Uses more cpu than it should. Very non-essential, in fact, the whole concept of DirectCD has problems. Many people start using it, without realizing that it creates disks that are non-portable. A disk used on computer A is useless on computer B. Plus, the process is using quite a bit of cpu time just running in the background when it should be doing nothing. steve
