Ever since CDs appeared on the market and later on DVDs, copying and sharing data across various systems and platforms became much easier. However, sometimes issues would appear because some OS would not read one file system or another.
To solve this, a neutral format, readable by any operating systems was developed: UDF (Universal Disk Format). To make use of it, disc burning software also implemented the format and it is now present on the supported list of most such applications.
One of the utilities especially designed to work with this file system is Nero InCD. This tool can be quite useful for erasing and formatting CDs and DVDs since this is the main task it was created to accomplish. It can even be configures to auto-format blank discs upon insertion.
A handy feature of this software is its ability to read optical discs created with the SecurDisc technology which has specific protection properties. The only requirement is that a compatible optical drive is connected to the system.
Nero InCD supports all CD and DVD formats in existence, but you should note that regular, write-only discs (CD-R or DVD-R) cannot be reformatted nor erased. For those purposes, you still have to resort to using CD-RW and DVD-RW / DVD+RW / DVD-RAM discs.
Since it is very easy to use, with a clean interface that provides quick access to all the features, this application is suitable for all users, advanced and less experienced alike. Without any complex configurations and thanks to the ability to use several UDF file systems, Nero InCD is one of the best tools in its category.
