Udf Reader And Xp Sp2


nieukirk

Recommended Posts

I am having an issue reading CD-Rs created with DirectCD. I've installed version 5 of the UDF reader and updated it with the download from Roxio's site, but I still cannot read the disk.

 

I am trying to determine if i have Roxio media that i can reinstall on my Dell laptop, but i couldn't get the reader to work on my wife's toshiba laptop either.

 

Thanks,

 

Shane

Hi Shane,

Can you do us all here a favor, can you post a bit of info on the computer, video card, software , service pack and most importantly the version of Roxio product you are using in your signature, that way we all here know what we are dealing with , also if you do have any questions please post them under the correct topic?, IE is this version 7 , 7.5? , 8.0?? this makes a big difference.

then all the crew here can try to help you.

with regards

Go to the ECDC 5 board and read teh FREQUENT ANSWERS post pinned to the top - especially the parts about formatting a disc (Basic False Analogy), DirectCD, and missing files.

You may be able to recover that data with free versions of CD Roller or IsoBuster, but chances are, most of that data is gone.

 

Never use a packet writing program for anything other than immediate transfer of data from one computer to another. I won't even load packet writing programs on my computer.

Er ... Grandpa ... the free Versions of cdroller and ISOBuster are to find out if anything can be recovered - then, you have the option of paying to recover.

 

However, since OP used a CD-R, there is a moderately good chance he can get it back - it's CD-RW + Packet-Writing that is total disaster. And I managed to learn the hard way, it turned out my software guru was right.

Are you asking us to tell you if you have "Roxio media" installed on your computer ? or how to re-install from your installation disk. If the latter, and your Roxio came with your Dell, there should be an installation disk.

Please clarify.

About the topic, I used general because l wasn't using EMC or any of the other products.

 

My OS is XP Pro, SP2. I installed the Adaptec UDF reader version 5.? that I found on download.com. I then used the v7 update.exe from Roxio. I don't have EMC or DirectCD currently installed.

 

I did install IsoBuster. It sees the data on the disk, but you do have to register to gain access to it.

.

About the install media, I obviously had EMC/DirectCD at one time since I created these disks I can't read. My previous laptop was W2k and I have had to rebuild my latest XP laptop several times. I may have just failed to reinstall EMC. My install media from Dell is at work and I can't recall if it included

Roxio. I figured it wouldn't matter since I could install the reader. Does the reader not always work?

 

I always liked the drag-n-drop nature of DirectCD. I guess that's why I used it for backups of photos. I definitely will not be using it in the future.

 

Is there a way to get out of this w/o buying EMC or IsoBuster or finding a W2k machine? How would I read these from the Toshia laptop w/o purchasing software?

 

Thanks,

 

Shane

I've read that the built-in .udf reader in WinXP will read DirectCD discs IF they are still readable.

 

Packet-Writing (including, but not limited to, Drag2Disc, DirectCD, Nero's InCD, Sonic's DLA) is notorious for failing for any reason at all or none.

 

If ISOBuster can read it, I'd suggest go for it if you want the data recovered.

Buy it. You already bought into trouble. This may at least recover part of the data.
