Query re use of Drive Image software

In preparation for installing Win XP I have just purchased (from click here for good prices) Drive Image and Partition Magic. Haven't installed either yet, but reading the DI Quick Start Guide re System Requirements it says (for creating a drive image on CD without the need for separate CD burning software) the CD-R or CD-R/W drive must be MMC2 compliant. Can anyone explain what this means and how do I check if my drive (Acer CRW 2010A) is OK?

It also states that a 'high-density' floppy disk drive is required. I haven't come across that term before; do I assume most floppy drives are 'high-density'? If not how do I tell? For info my system is 4 years old.

Hi,

I had alook on the powerquest Site for you to see compatible CD-RW drives. This is what I found: click here .

So, if your CD-RW is faster than 8X, then I think you will be ok.

'High-Density' is just a tech term used for 1.4MB floppies (most common).

There are other floppies like 'Double-density(720KB)' and 'Super-High-density (2.8MB)' but these are not commonly used.

Many thanks for the link and taking the trouble to look at the site for info. My drive is 40 x 20 x 10 (read, write and re-write) so I am well above the required write speed. Thanjs also for the info re 'High-density'.
