I need will check on the software revision tonight when I get home and check my computer.
In general, I bought the DVD+ drive a week ago from BestBuy. It is a Memorex 4X/2X DVD+. The drive was made by NEC (will check on the exact model number tonight) and came with bundled Nero/InCD sw.
Dburg, I have read quite a few notes you have written in this forum and I do appreciate very much your response here. Definitely, you are one of the most qualified person around here. Anyways, before I can get back with details hw/sw versions, can I ask some more general question here:
(1) From your response, it appears to me that InCD packet SHOULD work properly regardless of the target device write-speed(a 2x DVD+ RW write speed) and the file size (a directory or large number of files).... Is it true?
(2) From your response, it seems like this is an isolated case where the hw (DVD drive or DVD disc) could be a source of the problem? Is it true?
(3) A few of the posts in this forum suggested that InCD 3.5 might be a better choice. I don't know yet what InCD version I have yet but a visit to the InCD web site shows that there is only one version of InCD to be downloaded. If not, could you provide a link to said download page.... where Version 3.5 can be downloaded.
(4) I am excited to have the capability to use the DVD disc (~4G size) as a cheap and convenient way to backup data.... However, this packet writing problem is quite discouraging to me. I bought this DVD with the intent to backup/write data files more than just to burn movie-DVDs, so, I hope that this is a specific hw/sw problem rather than a general LIMITED CAPABILITY with InCD Packet Writing sw.
I hated to use Nero to burn the data files (i.e. I have to erase and re-burn the entire disc again if what I want is just to add only a few more files...to the disc or to use Synchonize_it! to sync my data data). The drag-drop "just like accessing the floppy disc or HD" is an appealing feature to me (not much of drag/drop feature but more of how easy to APPEND/DELET/ADD files to an existing data DVD-disc.
May I ask this question, say if this problem cannot be resolved, is there another type of application s/w that would allow me to access my DVD-RW disc like a hard-drive/floppy disc (I mean other than Packet Writing method).
Thanks a lot in advance. I do really appreciate to have a professional like you answering questions in this forum.
