This. Sometimes formatting and getting an image can take some work.

doesn't always work. it's.much easier to insert a cheap dvd and burn it in k3b and reboot than to install to usb most of the time.

Bought the Babylon 5 box set and then ripped all the DVDs a few months ago. Pretty much had to since I live in region 1 and the box set was for region 2.

I should be fine right?

Any first time building videos you'd recommend?

Is there any specific program I should use to put windows on the flash drive? I was just going to use microsoft's program

As long as you have access to internet, you can download all your drivers on your motherboards support page.

Can I do that once I set up WIndows or is that something I should do beforehand?

Last week when I ripped CDs that I bought.

About twenty minutes ago, in the car. I wish that there was a good way to listen to music in the car without CDs, but as far as I can tell there is not. I don't want to have to use my phone to control the music; I want the controls on the dashboard. What I need is a head unit with a USB port that understands MTP and has a high quality DAC. I don't know why that doesn't exist, but it doesn't seem to. With the exception of the car, it's been years.
>>
>>46920907
copy the network drivers on a usb drive just incase.

you are posting on 4chan so you have internet access to do so.

heck if your current pc has a dvd drive you can just copy the contents to a usb drive.

Couple weeks ago. Installed the core files of a game from DVD so that I didn't have to pull 12GB down from their servers just to start playing.

Yesterday. Decided to revive an old rig for steam big picture mode. Couldn't be fucked to make a usb installer for windows 7 so I found an old burned dvd. Haven't installed an OS from disc in years.

dvd-rs are really useful for backing up your files

Last Friday to burn some Audio CDs, because I have a very old car, and it has an "integrate audio experience" so I can' change the CD player to something better. I can't complain too much about it either, because the car was a gift.

I had to upload a driver CD to my home server since my new desktop doesn't have a reader

>>46919264
Some time last summer, I think.

When I want to play old games, I usually just buy from GOG, but while looking for my wallet and the card in it I found a game disc instead. After spending some time trying to convince the installer I'm running something better or equal to Windows 95, I realized I'd probably have to spend even longer setting up compatibility fixes and bought the game from GOG anyway.
>>
>>46919269
Ditto. For some reason, I can't get my Thinkpad to boot from USB ... it should, as I did so to do a Linux install earlier.

Also burned a few Puppy discs so I actually burned some CDRs too.
>>
>>46924038
They generally suck in my experience, at least the ones that plug into the headphone port. If you have an iThing, the ones that use the dock connector work pretty well.

Shit, in Region 4 where I live it is illegal to implement region blocking and our equipment will play everything (by convention) NTSC, PAL/SECAM, the lot.

You shouldn't be using the drivers on the discs. they are usually outdated due to the time stock takes in transit / on shopfloor. Download drivers from manufacturers website
>>
Multiple years. Last year I was asked to burn a CD. Tried inserting it into my Macbook, didn't catch onto it so i forced it in. Got stuck, going bananas in the progress. Tried everything, eventually pried it loose with a bowie knife. Recking the whole thing in the progress. Never again.

yesterday on blu-ray reservoir dogs.

I burn DVDs for my parents because they refuse to use anything else.

Hoping to build them a HTPC for when I next visit so I can stick them on a USB stick instead.
>>
Everyday until you can digitally buy the same quality as Blu-ray offers.

I distribute custom livecds to local neighborhoods door-to-door to get them to use linux. So far I have about twenty-three successful converts of probably two-thousand potentials.

They call me spin-master mike around here.

Everyweek, burning surgery cd's and burning for patients studies.

BTW, best quality CD/RW? Memorex seems to have a limited number of rewrites.

I pirate my Blu-rays, but would pay for it if it would be sold at a decent price.
>>
>>46927900
They all have a limited number of rewrites.

You are burning the ink inside the disc with a laser.
>>
>>46919269
Wow noob don't you have USB drive? Last time I used optical disk was 4 years ago to fix my broken OS.
>>
>>46927984
I kind of thought that, I wondered how it could rewrite without physically altering the disc. Oh well at least I'm helping a little bit with the environment. lol
>>
>>46919264

when I bought simcity 4 over 10 years ago

USB keys have replaced CDs, because if you're too cheap for a $5 stick for your software you're better off with a those UPC code things on a piece of toilet paper.

Flash drives are the only way.

Or consider a hotswappable front bay on the viewing device and have a stockpile of SSD's.
