I'm trying to share a CD-RW between two computers that are both running InCD

However, I keep having problems. At present, I can read and write to the disc with one computer, but the second computer can only read it and not write to it.

How can I get this to work as I want?

Both computers are running Windows XP Professional.

Can anyone help?

Not a straight answer but CDRWs are the cause of unlimited problems and a number of forum members will not use them, including me.

Can I suggest that as CDRs are so cheap that you use them and do a direct burn from Nero rather than InCD (which I feel is integral with the problem, as is ECCD).

I agree, and usually I wouldn't use CD-RWs either, but at the moment I'm having to work on something on two different computers and CDRs really wouldn't be a viable solution.

On the second computer that wouldn't write to the InCD Disc I'm getting the following message when I try and read from it:

You are currently trying to read a disc in the Mt. Rainier format (CD-MRW).
You are seeing this message, instead of the contents of the disc, because
your system currently does not support the CD-MRW format.

I have reinstalled InCD and updated it to the same version.

It's starting to really annoy me. There's no reason that I can think of for it not working!

I won't profess to know anything about CDRWs except that they cause problems but, have you looked up Mt Rainier on Google, you may get some insight there. Have a look click here

The CD-RW drive that I'm having trouble with is three years old. Could this be causing the problem?

What is the drag-and-drop capability built into Windows XP like?

Your 3 year old may be the problem!!

The XP CD writer is, well, basic. It works but I still use Nero rather than that one.

How can I confirm that my old CD-RW drive is the problem? It's a Philips CDD4201/81. I'm having a look on the Philips site, but I haqven't found anything yet.

The only way I can think of is to swap it for a more modern one and see how that goes. You can get a new Lite-On or LG machine for about £30 so, at that price, you can't really go wrong.
