Roxio's UDF Reader Error - At Windows Startup


BobBad

Question

Seems to happen more than not lately. When I first fire up my PC (and I also not too long ago installed Norton Antivirus 2007), I get a Windows Error Reporting error -- Microsoft sends back a report that states:

 

This problem was caused by Roxio's UDF Reader (udfreadr.sys) - and that I should follow the link to Roxio for resolution. Thoughts? I can't tell where it really impacts anything I try to do - yet.

 

Thanks

Windows, prior to Vista, does not have a packet writing program. The version in XP is a session writing program. You don't format the media.

 

And, it does not burn to a DVD. CDs only.

 

 

:( But it still causes my computer to crash when the Direct CD module is installed/enabled because windows wants to do the writing no matter what disk I try to use CD or DVD, so we had Direct CD removed and no problems since, even when there's a DVD in the drive.

Depends on the version of Roxio/Sonic and your OS

if your using one of the Roxio Products that has "Direct CD" and XP SP2 this will crash over and over and over again, "Direct CD" is not completely compatible with XP SP2; More specifically the earlier versions of "Direct CD".

 

We have Easy CD Creator Platinum version 5 on a Dell P4 Optiplex GX 270 with XP SP2 and the Direct CD Module crashed the machine constantly we're Talkin' BSOD (blue screen of death) so we had the System Administrator remove the "Direct CD" module and now there are no problems

Interesting answer - and one that would account for Blue Screen of Death as well it seems. I have a friend having that problem. But more to the point, I do run XP - SP2. The Roxio I have loaded currently is the RecordNow Music Lab Premier.

 

Is this the DirectCD you refer to removing? Shouldn't this latest software, with no known patches I can find, be able to run on my environment without crashing? Does this issue too explain why I can not seem to format a simple CD R+W CD? and why I seem to have issues with Drag & Drop and - I can drag and drop, but it seems the disk is then full, can't write to it any other way, etc?

 

What are the recommendations? Get off MS XP/SP2? Thanks much.

► Rather avoid using "Direct CD" Wndows has it's own version of Direct CD and UDF and causes problems with other programs that use packet writing.

► If there is a menu option to burn the disk as either DAO or TAO in the ISO / Joliet formats use that.

► DAO > Disk At Once (burns the whole disk/session in one pass)

► TAO > Track At Once (burns the whole disk by track)

► the newer "Direct CD" is Drag to Disk / Drag & Drop but it essentially does the same thing

► there are other posts in the forum about the problems with packet writing.

► other programs can also cause interference and crashes while using packet writing software.

 

Happy burning ;)
