I have a Cendyne CD/DVD R/RW external USB2/Firewire external drive. It came
with various bits of software for specific tasks (compressed backup etc.)
but without any software which I could use to Burn files directly onto a CD
or DVD disk.

How can I extend the normal XP CD burning facilities to this drive? I am
using a 1.6GHz ShuttleX PC. I can read both CD's and DVD's on the drive.

Out of interest I am having similar problems when using the drive on an
iMAC.

If it shows up as a DVD/CD RW, then YES, you can use XP to create CDs only.
You can get other softwatre to create DVDs.

I suggest you check with the drive manufacturer, there must be a compatible
software bundled so you can write to CD/DVDs on the external drive. Also,
you can choose free CD/DVD burning software from download.com:

Note that some of the free software on the site have adware, which sustains
the free software.
