|Packet writers are a sup program that is supplied along with the regular burning program. I don't have the latest versions of Roxio or Nero but the names of the packet writers on at least the older versions are: Drag to disk, for Roxio and InCD for Nero. If you don't KNOW what a packet writer is then you don't need it. |
You may have it installed though. Both of those programs tend to install everything they have unless you perform a custom install. You can remove the packet writer by using add/remove programs or the equivalent in Vista. You should get an option to modify the suite. Go through the list and lose the functions you don't want.
Conversely, you may be able to remove that feature from the flash drive by zapping all the partitions and creating new.
