Trouble accessing disks on W2k with LG CD/RW 8080B

Recommended Posts

Nightmare trying to read old disks or create new. I upgraded to W2K and can only read pre-recorded (titled) CDs i.e. can't access the files I created in WindowsME (I know !) with EasyCD from Adaptec.

Please help. Tried updating drivers going to W2K SP4 but still prompts mte to insert CD into drive when I have a blank CD in the drive. I checked out the BIOS settings which appear to be in order.

At a loss now.

Any help greatfully appreciated!

Cheers,

Iain.

Did you install the aspi drivers for windows already?

you can additional downbload them , there not always installed.

This can solve your problems, had the same problem once.

I suppose Easy-CD did not use UDF filesystem or anything else special? I can remeber that I had to install some special UDF drivers on every PC I wanted to read a CD burned with Direct-CD.

Thanks flo/Guest.

I tried the UDF but think this only appears to be for XP? Do you have a link?

Also on the ASPI drivers front do you have a link to any specifics? I did try to install but didn't make any difference.

Going round in circles on this one there's surely go to be a way - the truth is out there!

Had another look looks like LG have pushed their support on to Roxio but websites on both fronts pretty poor :(

No, UDF is intened to work with every system. The only special feature XP has, is an integrated burning feature.

On 2000/XP it shouldn't make a difference, since most burning programs use the internal "ASPI" there.
