Please anyone correct me if I am wrong, but IIRC dao is disk at once,
which both writes to the disk and closes it so you can't write to it

What the practical difference between the two is I am not sure, but I
think it is like flipping that little thingy on the corner of the old
floppy disks to make sure they cannot be written to anymore.  But I
could be very wrong.  Personally I have been able to use cds I have
not closed, and ones I have.

Don't know if this helps at all, but I hope so, bit of a case of the
blind leading the blind.....;-)
