    hey guys. well, i just received my copy of the above mag in the post. this month is the tenth anniversary of PC PRO (seems quite a cool issue at a glance).

    This issue comes with SuSe 9.1 personal, "Partition Expert 2003 Personal"
    (requires online registration), and "ultra wincleaner, Destroy it!" as well as a few other products (DVD edition, i dont know about the CD edition).

    however, the reason i felt i should post this thread is simply the fact that PC PRO have kindly also included a copy of SP2 (home, Pro, Media Centre, Tablet PC editions) with the issue.

    If any of you wish a copy of the Service Pack (especially those of you with modem connections), i would seriously recommend picking up a copy of this issue. For those who havent read PC PRO before, its a great excuse to pick it up - you'll be glad you did, at least, in my opinion anyway.

    ..........................of course, there may well be other mags also distributing SP2, so if you have a favourite, keep an eye out!

    Beaten you to it Fergal...I bought my copy of PC Advisor last week and I got SP2 on CD...I would imagine they would have it on all mags...

    Oh by the way if anyone wants to lend any advice to other poor souls who are big probs with their PCs and other stuff head to www.pcadvisor.co.uk where I am an advisor myself and its really good. Like I said I buy their mag every month and its full of great stuff and some good articles too.

    I went to have a look but I'm not going to join a forum where I need to register as a member before I can take a look at the forums.

    oh no Phoenix dont you get me started...I thought you of all people would know...but then with a near 1TB drive you wont be needing CD-Rs :dry you can format CD-Rs using whats known as DirectCD as you may have heard with programs like Roxio Easy CD Creator...

    um, noel, doesnt directCD format a cd in order to use it as a floppy drive (drag 'n drop files). but a CD-R can only be written to once, regardless of how you configure it. with CD-RW's, you can copy and delete files on the CD.

    Yes Fergal...but did you also know that when you have formatted a CD-R you can set it be 'open' so you can 'write' data to the CD at a later time and once data has been put to it as you mention drag and drop...you can then finalise the CD to be read on all compatible drives...apparently its something called UDF?

    Jak I am just really jealous thats all...:dry

    yeah i knew, but its not really formatting noel, its a function of CD-R's. i wouldnt even really say conditioning the CD for drag 'n drop is formatting really either!
