would like to be able to list the files in a folder, or on a medium (CD

I miss the old DOS: Dir c:\notes > LPT1
But that's what I need.
As an alternative to the command prompt:

From the web site:
"DirPrinting is a simple program for viewing and printing directories.
It offers a drive/directory window and a file list, which can be
arranged and sorted according to various criteria. This list can be send
to any printer (printing preview and storage included). Functions as
"copy to clipboard", "save as file", "send by email", "include
subdirectories" or "file filter" are all available. "
After using the copy to clipboard function the directory listing can be
pasted to a flat file database within a spreadsheet (in applications
like Openoffice Calc or Excel).
Version 0.8.55 doesn't have a help function implemented though.
Why not just click in the lower left hand corner on the "Start"; run cmd
move to the directory you want a list of files and do a
Dir > text.txt
Open text.txt in notepad and do what you want with it.
Going to the directory can be intimidating, however.
1) Open the properties of any file in the directory that you want listed.
2) Highlight and the "ctrl C' to copy the complete directory string
3) Right click any where on the desktop and create a new text file.
4) open the text file and past the directory string
5 add cd with a space in front of the directory string
6 Add the line Dir > text.txt
7) Save the text file
8) goto the desktop and change txt to bat
9) click on the bat file
10 go to the directory where you want the file list open the text.txt file and do what you want with the directory list.
You can use all DOS switches in the BAT file
This works on any Windows Dos computer.
This can be done even if the computer people down in IT have locked the computer so it barely works, to prevent unauthorized programs. It is surprising how blind they are to the power of a DOS batch file.
