Recording with HP DLA
HP DLA allows you to use the hp cd-writer drive like a diskette drive by
using the drag-and-drop capability.
Important: Before using HP DLA to copy files directly to CDs, you must
format the disc.
To format a disc that allows you to record files using the DLA program:
1 Press the Eject button on the hp cd-writer drive, and insert the blank
CD-R or CD-RW disc.
2 Click Start, and then click My Computer.
3 Right-click the hp cd-writer drive icon, and select Format.
4 Under Volume Label, type in the title of the disc.
5 Under Format type, select Full or Quick (erase). You must select
the quick format for all CD-R discs. You must select the full format for
a CD-RW disc the first time you format it.
Note:
Full format can take from 20 to 45 minutes, depending on the speed of
the drive and the size of your disc. Quick format usually takes less than a minute.
6 If desired, click Enable Compression. (Only PCs with DLA
software installed can read files formatted with this type of
compression.) This option will not compress files that are already
compressed.
Important:
compatible.
7 Click Start to format the disc.
8 Click Yes to the message that all files on the CD will be erased.
9 Click OK.
10 When the disc formatting is complete, you can copy your files to the
hp cd-writer drive (from some menus, it may be labeled DLA drive)
by:
Dragging and dropping a file onto your drive icon.
Selecting Save As from within a program and saving the file to
your drive.
Right-clicking a file and selecting Send To, and then selecting
your drive.
If you want to use your DLA-formatted disc in another CD drive that does
not support DLA, right-click the hp cd-writer drive icon and select Make
Compatible.
Important: The Make Compatible option for DLA software is available
only for uncompressed CD-R discs. Once you make a disc compatible,
the disc is closed, and you can't write any more files to it.
CD-R discs that contain compressed files cannot be made
