Bij Hardware One hebben ze een uitgebreide review gepost van versie 4 van Adaptec's Easy CD Creator. Deze nieuwe versie bevat nu een aantal erg handige nieuwe features. Hier heb je een hap uit de review.
Adaptec announced the release of the Easy CD Creator 4 on September 10th, 1999. With its release, host of new features have been added, allowing you to have more fun out of your CD-R drive. Some of the new features include:
MP3 Music Support
Music CD Creation Tools
Liquid Music MPlayer
Animated CD Guide
Access to CDDB Disc Recognition
Improved CD Spin Doctor
MGI PhotoSuite II SE
MGI VideoWave II SE Photo Album Creation
Video Postcard Creation
Jewel Case Creator
Easy CD Creator 4 Deluxe goes way beyond the software that came with your CD-Recorder, and all earlier deluxe editions. Now it's easier than ever to create music, photo, video, and data CDs. Access music on the Internet. Fine-tune your music tracks. Edit and enhance photos and videos with a pro's touch. Save and share data with confidence. And, CD Guide™, a new animated character, takes you through the steps of creating your CDs.
With support for MP3 Music Support, all you need to do to create audio CDs is to drag-and-drop the MP3 files onto the CD Layout, skipping the traditional way of converting the MP3s into .WAV format (.WAV is a standard Windows format for sound files) before adding them to the CD Layout. DirectCD is now integrated into Easy CD Creator v4 Deluxe and is your usual software for your CD-RW drive.
One interesting new feature is Take Two. Take Two is a disaster recovery software which lets you safely backup and restore your hard disk in 3 easy steps (more on it later).
