Hello all!
I have a question concerning burning CDs with Nero 5.5.
I have a text file with full paths to several hundred files I want to burn to a CD.
Is it possible to tell Nero to burn only these files?
I would rather not select the files by pointing and clicking in Nero's file browser because of the number of files involved.

Why not use InCD that comes with Nero so you can directly transfer files to the CD without going throuh NERO at all.

Make your text file a .bat file and use this command

Copy /y TheDrive\TheFolder\Thefile

InCD only works with CD-RW? I would prefer using CD-R because many CD-ROMs can't read CD-RW (only cd-writers?), but that is an option I'll keep in mind, thanks.
Is that the only way to do this or are there other ways?

Quite Frankly I don't know since I exclusively use direct writing to CD's. I haven't opened a burning software program in over a year. :>)

One thing I thought of is you could use the batch file to copy the files to a specific folder and then use nero to burn the files from that folder then delete those files forom that folder

BTW I forgot something

Copy /y TheDrive\TheSourceFolder\Thefile TheDrive\TheDestinationFolder

Ok, direct writing with InCD, Direct CD or something else?

It should work to batch copy them to separate directory, sure. Thanks.
