[ubuntu] 10.10 on old pc - use a thumb drive instead of cd burner. (no multiple sessions work)

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am running 10.10 on an older gateway pc and it works ok for me. One problem that I have had to work around is on my hardware I cannot use any newer version of ubuntu and have everything work so I stay with 10.10. What I cannot get to work is multiple session on a cd-r on my NEC NR-7700A burner with any of the available burner aps (Brasero, GnomeBaker, K3b) - they all simply close out the cd-r so I get to use the disk one time. What I have learned because of this is to use a thumb drive instead of cd-r's - on my old system the usb ports are original usb (read not usb2) but the thumb drive (Hardware)
