Question About Nero, InCD and Power DVD XP

Postby craiger on Wed Jul 30, 2003 12:03 am

I installed Nero Express that came with my new Buslink/Lite-On 48x24x48x16x combo drive. Do I really need to install InCD? What does InCD do? I don't like that it always starts up with Windows and shows in the system tray. Can I get rid of InCD from the system tray and still run InCD? Also will the 16x DVD-ROM run at 16x on my P2 350? I saw that the system requirements are a P2 350. Thanks, Craig.

InCD is Aheads packet writing software it allows you to format a blank cd-rw where you can use it as a giant floppy disk draging and droping files.

To my knowlege you can not remove the icon from the system tray.

There is a way to remove the icon from starting up in the system tray, but not through Nero.

Go to Start >> Run >> msconfig

Then go to Startup, find "InCD" and uncheck it. It will no longer startup when you boot your computer.

Cool, thanks for the info. Is InCD like Mt. Rainier?

InCD will give you the option to format a cd-rw with the UDF or MRW.

MRW = Mt. Rainier

UDF is the file system blank cd-rw disc are formated with for packet writing. Before Mt. Rainier came out and for drives which do not support MRW (or users who wish tot to use MRW).

Is UDF better than MRW?

UDF is normal packet-writing, which is using the CD like a big floppy.

MRW is Mount Rainier, which also allows you to use the CD like a big floppy, but it "background-formats" the disc, which means that you can use the disc before the formatting completes.

I like MRW better because it allows you to use the disc more quickly.
