i am writing an application with VB that requires a file to be burned onto a CDR-W. the problem is that i dont have a cdr-w on my developement machine...is there are controls or api's that give you ways to test code without a drive available (like a simulation of sorts)

thanks!

both are the same program.

and i have been trying to use this program actually without success before i posted this. it tells me something about missing dlls and drives not found...which leads me to believe it does not allow for a test mode.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I really think it will be very hard to test without the actual hardware on your PC. It is like you want to test SQL Server connection without having installed SQL!

this may be true. i was just wondering if it could be done. i just noticed that this ocx you guys suggested does have a testmode, so im going to see what i can do with that.
