allows you to treat a CD or DVD [i.e. optical disc] as if it were a hard-drive - you can write and even edit a file on an optical disk. It's a "packet writing" technology like InCD/DLA. You can even edit a file on a disk that is NOT a RE-writable disk. It's not as wonderful as it sounds. There is a proprietary mechanism in these packet writing schemes that allows this behaviour. Information about the current version of an edited file is written and re-written - each time to a NEW part of the writable disc. The disc cannot be read in another computer without the same software.
