First of all I'd like to wish all forum members a prosperous and happy new year, and many thanks for all the help you've given me over the last couple of years.
Now to my current problem.
I don't seem to be able to format DVD's using InCD. Whenever I try, the message appears 'Error writing the disc in F:\ Please confirm that the disc is compatible with the drive and is not scratched or damaged'. I know it's not the discs as up until two weeks ago they worked fine, also when using Nero 6 (verion 6603) to backup to DVD, that also works fine. I have tried everything: Uninstaling/reinstalling InCD (latest version 4305), I've used InCD Clean tool, System Restore, even uninstalling SP2, as the problem started about the time I Installed SP2, although that maybe just a coincidence. I know InCD had a Problem With a WMP7 plugin, does the same plugin exist in WMP10?
It is DVD+RW's (Packard Bell) that I'm having the problem with (I don't have any others to experiment with at the moment). As I said, these worked perfectly fine until a couple of weeks ago, and now I get the InCD error message.
I am a bit confused about the suggestion to uninstall WMP 10 (I thought it was an integral part of XP)as the only option is to roll back to version 9...which I did, but I've no idea how to avoid the Adaptec Driver component being installed.
WMP 10 is an upgrade not an integral part as for the Adaptec bit i think its installed with wmp 9 and 10,but having said that it still should allow the cd/rw to do its job.I would like to know how you reverted to wmp 9,as you may have not reverted the adapted codec as well just the player.Having said that i have wmp 10 with codec and although nero 5.5 i have no probs formating dvd/rw disc's.so can you check your player is supported by nero,and if there is an upgrade.
I reverted to WMP9 by removing it in Add/Remove in Control Panel but the only option was to roll back to 9 from 10. When I then reinstalled 10 there was no option to not install the Adaptec driver.
I can't find anywhere on the Nero site what burners they support, but anyway everything was working fine till a couple of weeks ago, so I guess that InCD, NEC 2500 and Packard Bell DVD's are fully compatible. It's something else that I've done, but the only thing I can think of is installing SP2, which I have now uninstalled because of this problem.
