copy files to cd

I have Windows XP Home on one computer and have never been able to "drag &
drop" to the CD, or copy and paste to the CD. On my new computer with XP SP2
I can copy to the CD drive and then click "Write these files to CD" and it
burns the files to the CD. How do I get my other computer to do this. Is
there a setting I need to change. I have IOMEGA Burn and Go and EZ CD creator
on it and both work but I'd like the ability to copy the same way I do on the
new computer (well, not me, I don't care, but other users need this
simplified way of doing things). Please help.
Thank you.

Install Easy CD on the other and then use "Drag to CD". XP does not allow
this direct!

Drag and drop requires packet writing software such Easy Media
Creator's Drag to Disk component, www.roxio.com or Nero's InCD component
etc.
XP's built-in CD burning function does not support this feature nor does
it support DVD burning of any kind.

I believe that the installation of 3rd party packet writing software may cause
Windows XP's built-in utility to be disabled. Read the write-up in the following

Way I read your post, you have two PCs with XP. One has two forms of packet
writing 3rd party software. You want this one to use the native XP
(actually its a crippled form of Roxio) burning.
The question regarding a proper reply is: do you want to also retain the 3rd
party packet writing ability as well?
