I have a problem that un-installing INCD fixes

Postby Rich on Sun Aug 20, 2006 7:01 am

Hi, I rarely use my Laptop's burner in order to extend its life. But lately I've noticed a constant problem where if I burn a CD on my Laptop with Nero the stuff I burn can't be seen. Finally upon uninstalling INCD the disk (a CD-R) was recognizable and I put 2-3 other disks believed to be coasters into the drive and then they all were perfectly readable. I just downloaded the latest version of InCD and installed it and bingo, same problem. I un-installed it and there was the data on the disks again.

Any ideas?

This is a Toshiba 1415-s115 Laptop, 2ghz Celeron, 500k mem, 60 gig 7200 rpm drive, and a Panasonic internal laptop drive 16x cd burner/DVD-Rom combo running Windows XP.

Also, for 2-3 years now if I burn a disk on my Plex PX-712 via a Cardbus adapter/Firewire connection I have to reboot and disconnect/reconnect the external Plex to read those disks which were just burned by the plex.

Thanks, Rich

Yeah, but I 'd like to be able to read/write re-writeables. I do have Roxio's 5 full version, I could install the Direct CD I think it was called.

hmmm

Wow, there is one I just don't know. I'll have to find a backup to restore and check and see. I got a couple I can try-see. I'll let you know. Tonight I'll dump a past system into place and see.

Thankx, Rich

FWIW- If I remember correctly there is a compatibility issue between Roxio 5 and XP if SP#2 is installed...

Ok I figured I'd get a disk I could see data on, examine the auto insert notification setting, re-install INCD, see if I could see the data, and then finally toggle the auto insert notification setting to see if I could see the data.

Your not indicating which way the auto insert notification should be keeps me from knowing if I'll be installing INCD the right way.

Ok I just started to do all this and I just burned a 2 megabyte .mpeg file onto a blank CD with it not finalized. I clicked next on Nero and the drive opened and I exited Nero and pushed the drive closed again and waited.

Nothing I could do would show me the file. All I could see was a blank root directory. So, I rebooted the laptop and afterward (as always) there was the file. This happens with this internal laptop drive and my Plextor PX-712 via a Cardbus/Firewire to an external enclosure holding the Plex. Both drives require a reboot after each and every burn in order to see the data on the disks. It's as if Nero doesn't release the drive when it's finished. It has always been this way for me with Nero, even back when I used my tower 3 years ago. I just got used to it I guess, but I really wish I didn't have to reboot after every burn.

Now I just discovered something I never encountered with over 3 years in windows xp that it's not like Windows ME where you just go and click a box in the device manager to toggle the auto insert notification.

I found a description of what to do that says: (page found at: http://www.padus.com/support/manuals/35 ... p_tips.htm )

I'm just installed XP Pro from Home edition over the weekend (problem existed in Home edition and Pro edition) so I'm looking at XP Pro's instructions which say: (this is in regards to disk juggler)

Before you install DiscJuggler on Windows XP Professional Edition:

1. Make sure "Auto-insert notification" is disabled by .......

........ it goes on with the proceedure but check the site for all of it.

Now, this says to make sure that Auto Insert Notification" is disabled, and as I follow this mine is 'Not Configured' so I'll just leave it like that for now and go and re-install InCD and see if I can see my file on the CD.

Ok I just did that and now I'm all confused. I can see the file now, which I couldn't do in earlier situations, until I uninstalled InCD. Wow, maybe I just need to reboot, .... but I did reboot....., wow this just became inconsistant, which is the worse possible thing.

Ok, I'll just poke along with it until it is consistantly good or bad. Poop, right now I'm just tired and confused.

Thanks for the help.

Instead of rebooting, try clicking on the drive letter for your CD or DVD writer and hitting F5.

I'd nearly bet my laptop I've done that, but tonight I'll test that and let you know.

Thanks, Rich

Well I tried a couple things very early this morning which confused me further. I got home and connected the external plextor and it could see the files. I'll have to let this go for a while since I'm too busy to do a comprehensive test at home. What I may do soon is try to test with the plextor and get a scenario that is consistant and then try that on the laptop's internal drive.

The worst is crossing my mind that it could be a laptop drive beginning the process of self-retirement. It be great if these puppies were affordable.

I'll post more when i get time to do more testing.

Oh, I did try the F-5 (refresh) and nothing.

thanks again
