CDBurnerXP Pro 3.113 beta dnd problem Windows98se [solved]

Recommended Posts

Hello,

When I try to drag a folder from the top (left or right part) frame to the compilation, it only takes the folder, but no file or subfolder inside it...

For example, I have a folder named Archives with many subfolders and files inside that I want put put on a DVD+RW: the folder size is about 4.1GB.

When I drag this folder in the compilation frame, it appears as a 0.75MB folder without anything inside.

I uninstalled version 3 113beta version and reverted to the 2.2.9 version and it works like a charm (that is dragndrop from the upper frame to the lower frame works).

What's the matter?

Did I do something stoopid?

Help me Obiwan Kenobi, you're my only hope... Huh no, not this part, stupid droid.

Note: I've got screenshots of both versions, if I'm not perfectly clear...

A friend of mine also tried it (not on W98se)

Drag'n'drop works on his Windows 2000 SP4.

And no, I won't buy W2k just to CDBurnerXP Pro 3 113beta to work... :)

Well, we could need a confirmation that this problem occurs on every Win98SE PC.

As a first step, I reverted my Win98se installation to one dating back to december 2003.

(I knew that was a good idea to keep system backups)

I reinstalled CDBurnerXP 3 113beta and drag'n'drop didn't work any better back in december 2003 :(

On a sidenote, I thought I had kept a "freshly installed" bare Win98se system on a CD, but I just can't put my hands on it (must have forgotten to effectively put it on a CD)

I suppose I could completely erase my Win98se installation and reinstall it from scratch, but I'm feeling soooo tired just imagining that... :D

Am I the last one still using Win98se in this forum???...

All Windows98(SE) users will die sooner or later...most did already :-P

One of my friends is still alive and uses Windows 98 (not SE).

Today, I tried CDBurnerXP Pro 3 beta113 on his Windows 98 PC: it works.

So either, something is broken in my Windows 98SE installation or there's a subtle (?) difference between 98 and 98SE.

I'll make some more tests... :(

I think it is more likely a "broken" system...at least I hope so :D

I found an even older backup (27/11/2003) but it didn't work better :(

Tomorrow, I'll install a fresh Win98SE on another disk :?

(that's much longer than using dd to backup current system state and restore an older one)

Good night.

So, today is tomorrow, if you see what I mean... :)

I installed Windows 98SE on an old 1.6GB IDE disk salvaged from a dying poor little HP (Pentium 233).

I added nothing to the bare Win98SE installation but InstMSIA.exe ( http://download.microsoft.com/download/ ... stMsiA.exe )

No Graphics card driver, no sound, no ethernet, no pr0n viewer, nothing whatsoever but the aforementionned program that is required by CDBurnerXP Pro 3 113 beta installation program.

Then, I installed CDBurnerXP Pro 3 113beta, launched it, dragged c:\Windows from the upper frame, dropped it in lower frame and it displayed 0.75MB... you bet ;)

So:

- it works on (at least) one Win98 installation

- it doesn't work on a bare Win98SE installation

- it works on Windows 2000 SP4

Well, what now?

The only safe way to test that is to install Win98 (not SE) on your PC. If it does work then, it is a Bug under Win98SE.

Yeah, nice... :(

(getting Win98 from my friend: one week at least; removing disk and installing old disk: 10minutes; erasing disk, installing Win98: 2 hours; testing 10 minutes; putting back everuthing in place: 10 minutes)

I have another idea :)

Is there anybody out there using CDBurnerXP Pro 3 113beta on Win98(not SE)?

Or, at least being able to test it on Win98(not SE).

BTW, a CD/DVD recorder is not needed for testing the drag'nDrop

Big bright idea, heh? :wink:

Sorry for shouting... :oops:

480 people read this topic: I hope someone is still using Win98...

I have a loaned copy of 98 & SE and a copy of 95 & even 3.1! However none of them are installed on anything. I guess i could check out to see if it works on ME. I"m on Win2k SP4 and it seems to work fine for me, although it has crashed a couplea times. Personally, i think this program is great!

Have fun stormin' the castle!

Hello,

First things first: thank you for your reply :)

But, I am quite surprised as it goes against what I have observed...

Are you certain that this is Win98SE?

Would you be so kind as to check your Win98 version against this page, please?

http://perso.wanadoo.fr/tmcd2/Versions.htm

For example, my Win98SE version is 4.10.2222 A

And second question: did you install any "patch"?

Have a nice day.

Hello,

first, i have to say that my english is not very good. But i try my very best :-)

Yes, some time ago i bought Win98SE! The number is 4.10.2222 A (same as yours).

And second question: did you install any "patch"?

No, only some updates ("Windows-Update") from Microsoft.

I use Internet Explorer 5.01. This is not the Internet Explorer from the CD-Rom. It is a later Version. And i use the aspi-driver v472a2.

The older versions 2.xx never worked perfektly right, but since the new major version 3.xxx everything (only burn-speed autodetection sometimes is not right) works fine :-)

Bye,

Andreas

Thanks for your answer.

But, I fail to understand what's going on with my Win98SE...

I'll get Win98 (not SE) from a friend of mine to try and see if bare Win98 works.

This could validate the need for some upgrades from Microsoft.

Still very strange.

P.S.

Too bad davisnw did not answer Flo's question in topic "adding folders to iso image does not add files!"; I'm curious to know which Windows version he uses since he seems to have the same problems as I have...

Ah, he answered and his problem, which seems quite like mine, appears on WinXP SP2 (not Win98SE)...

Even more confusing :(

The problem with drag'n'drop disappeared in version 3 beta115 on my Windows 98SE :)

Thanks!

Hi all, I want to make my website more secure place with ssl certificates . But for this certificate they are asking a lot of money. I want my customer's browser to communicate to my server via a secure, encrypted link. For it I don't want to spent lot of money. I f anyone of you have any suggestion for me then share it with me.
