My CD Rewrite has worked OK for three years but now a strange fault has developed, it plays music CD’s OK, it plays CD’s that I have created using the rewriter both music and data, it plays games that need a CD in the drive to play OK, but it will not now recognize or play Data CD’s i.e. Encyclopaedia Britannica or load new game CD’s. If I click the drive to load the program from the install icon there is nothing there the disc looks empty. I have tried to load disc that loaded ok before but when I click the drive there are no files there either. Two months ago I replaced my DVD drive with a DVD rewriter I don’t know if that has got anything to do with it. Thanks for any help.
I fitted a USB Viking 6 in 1 Flash memory card reader a few months ago.
Try removing its software.
If you are running XP it will recognise the device without the risk of driver conflict.
If I try access the CD I get a message saying to put a CD in the drive when there is a disk in the drive, If I then reboot the computer with the CD still in the drive the disc is recognised and it runs ok, but the InCD icon in the system tray has a yellow exclamation mark on it, but it disappears if I boot minus a disc in the drive. There was no software supplied with it just the rewriting software.I am running XP Pro. I have fitted another rewriter from computer that was working ok and it does the same.
I have a similar problem where both my dvd rom drive and my dvd writer would not read data. I see that you are using InCD, so am/was I for a long time now. I store a lot of files on InCD formatted disks but couldn't access the disks. Eventually, I had to uninstall Incd and download InCD cleaner and then InCD Reader from nero.com. I still can't use InCD as I want to, but at least I can read the InCD disks and my drives work as they should. I don't know what's caused the problem but it only recently started playing up, even after downloading the latestest version. Good luck!
I removed InCD Packet-Writing program I could then play CDs but I couldn’t Drag & Drop files so I reloaded Packet-Writing and fiddled with a few settings and rebooted and everything seems to be working ok. I don’t quite know what I did but I hope it keeps working. The problem defiantly lies with the InCD packet-Writing program but I do not know what was wrong. Thanks to anybody who tried to help.
Packet writing software has been iffy ever since packet writing software was invented. I would strongly recommend that you don't use it for anything that you seriously want to keep. Use it like a big floppy disk to move data from one pc to another. For anything else, use R for long-term and RW for short-term storage.
Better still, use DVD-RAM.
