Direct CD mac counterpart?

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Ok on my old PC I had a cd-rw drive and Direct CD by Adaptec (I think). It basically let you use a CDRW as a floppy. That is you could add and remove files without burning the whole disk before you ejected it. You could then put it back in later and read and write more stuff without having to erase the whole thing. It was very handy for small backups.

So is there anything like this for the mac? Something like this that would work with a dvd-rw would be awesome.

EDIT: I will learn to speel one day.

    Are you running OS X 10.2? try just putting a blank CD-RW in your optical drive. It should appear on your desktop. Copy whatever you want to it and eject it, it will burn the data to the disc. then you should be able to put it back in and copy more stuff to it.

    If that doesn't work, Toast will do it for you.

    Well I tried what you said and when I put the disk back in and try to drop more stuff in it I am told it can't be modified. <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />
