Using a cd/rw as a fixed disc?
    #4434127 - 07/21/05 05:37 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

A friend of mine had a program a few years back that allowed the use of a cd/rw as another drive......basically it imposed a fixed-drive type file system over the CD....
Anyone know what i'm talking about? And if so, point me in the direction of such a program?
Twould be of great use.

Rod, man, you're thinking of virtual drives as a system of mounting images from your disk drive and having them show up as physical disk drives. Almost man!
But I believe that what Randolph is talking about is Packet Writing
Adapatec pioneered packet writing with DirectCD however it has been spread and many CD writing programs support it now.

and

also

Adaptec (DirectCD), Nero (InCD) and many other programs support packet writing.

Yep, that's the concept....now all i gotta do is find a program...
Way i figure it, combine a cd/rw as download and run an operating system from cd, keep everything nice and clean regarding any potential data gathering/incursions.

Windows needs waaaay too many writes for that to work, it would be horrifically slow. You might be able to get it to work with a PE environment or something but it would take probably weeks of tweaking to turn off all the unneccesary writes.

I dunno.  Not everyone uses windows, ya know  :wink:


Randolph: 
In theory your idea would work if you used Knoppix
Knoppix
and with that loaded into memory you saved files you downloaded onto cdrs using packet writing software.

This would make public use of computers almost 100% anonymous (with the exception of peeking peers, sign-in lists and IP addresses...etc  :smile:) as long as there isn't any hardware intervention (hardware keyloggers... the type you plug the keyboard in, and then the adapter into the PC.  See this link for info:

Well, see, i was thinking Knoppix, and a good proxy service would be as close to really anonymous as one could get.....going to the extreme, one could go find a pile of computers and ghost the hardware idents....use that as the end of the proxy chain....give em an easily believable story.
Not really concerned with hardware keyloggers.....and one can always overcome that by typing a pile of gibberish before anything important :wink:

To BoringNickName:  I was just thinking of using it in conjuction with a cd-based OS so as to save files in a way that wouldn't put data on the drive.....keep any solid connection between the shit on my drive and my activities a few steps further away.
