This has been a problem ever since I left DirectCD for InCD. Since I now use Nero for burning CD, I decided to switch to InCD for packet writing. Here is the annoyance:
1.) CD writer is HP SCSI CD-Writer+ 9600 Firmware 1.0a
2.) DVD-ROM is TOSHIBA SCSI DVD-ROM SD-M1201 Firmware 1R08
3.) InCD itself works just fine. Problem is that the CD-RW disc is not accessible (readable) in the DVD-ROM. It always was with DirectCD.
4.) The Toshiba DVD-ROM is multi-read compliant and with UDF reader, it should see the CD-RW formated by InCD.
I installed ver2.04-200101181745 of bsudfrdr.vxd which is the UDF reader that Nero provides. No luck! CD-RW is not accessible in the DVD-ROM.
5.) So I tried a trick. It worked only once, if you can believe that: I replaced ver2.04 of bsudfrdr.vxd with ver3.25 bundled in the EasyWriteReader software (for CD-MRW) from Nero. When I booted up into Windows 98SE, the CD-RW was accessible and readable in the DVD-ROM. Later when I returned to the same drive and disc, not accessible anymore. And that is the way it is even as I write this.
By the way, the CD-RW formated by InCD 3.x is perfectly readable on my friend's CD-ROM --- I believe he has Adaptec UDF reader installed.
Anyway, this has annoyed me for some while now. Can someone give me some clues as to why the readers cannot assist my DVD-ROM to see/read the file system that InCD has placed on my freshly made CD-RW.
Windows 98SE 4.10.2222A
InCD ver 3.51.61
InCDUDF Reader 3.25 or 2.04
ASPI for Win32 Adaptec 4.71
Nero Burning Rom 5.5.9.17
Please help if you can.

Before proceeding further, see the threads at www.cdrlabs.com:

On XP, reading standard non-CD-MRW (i.e., non Mt. Rainier) discs seems achievable with EasyWriteReader (reliability is another question). For CD-MRW, apparently nobody cares, but I persist.

On 98SE, I didn't have time to test the latest InCD.

Before proceeding further, we need more details (I'll supply mine as needed; we might eventually compare our IOSYS directories when I test 98SE). How come you're using InCDUDF Reader instead of EasyWriteReader? (See my post on the identity crisis of the latter.)

My God, EasyWriteReader causes a WINDOWS PROTECTION ERROR at Windows 98SE boot up. It's an offending .vxd that EWR installs in iosubsys. Incidentally, it's NOT the bsudfrdr.vxd file but the other .vxd EWR places there that is the culprit. Children, can we say 'HALT'?
Anyway, thanks for the links. I'm off to do some careful ready at cdrlabs.

Thanks once again. I should make clear that I'm not interested in the least in the functionality of CD-MRW discs. I don't have a MT RAINIER drive nor do I have MRW media. I just want to view my CD-RW's in the second drive (Toshiba DVD-ROM). Just to be clear. Seems like a simple request to me (especially since I could when I used DirectCD).

I'm beginning to think that this may all come down to the fact that the BHA built reader that Nero distributes just doesn't work with my model of DVD-ROM. BTW, I even disabled the InCD UDF file system driver in \iosubsys\ and tried each version of the reader 'bsudfrdr.vxd' that I have. Nothing worked. In fact, it appears that the UDF file system driver is a dynamic driver and doesn't even load until some InCD task is performed. Guess I'll keep lurcking about but I'm nearly ready to let go of this issue. At least InCD is working fine and I do have access to my CD-RW's in the HP writer.

Some good news: I've just solved my 98SE problem via latest updates. Even if you are no longer interested, I give some details to help others.

I'm now using Nero 5.5.9.17, InCD 3.51.61 and EasyWriteReader 3.3.2.0 (the current one from Ahead's website).

My Lite-On LTR-48125 VS08 sits in a FireWire (Oxford chipset) external enclosure connected by a PCMCIA card to an old laptop (but top of the line in mid '99) running Win98SE (freshly installed in August after an HD failure, with all the MS updates, including IEEE 1394 storage supplement). It's got a Toshiba DVD-ROM SD-C2102, with DMA on, and Auto insert off (BTW, for your SCSI drive, one could play with Disconnect and Sync data transfer; did you try?).

Having already Nero 5.5.9.17 on my box, I started by removing InCD 3.31 and EasyWriteReader 1.0.0.1. Then an install of InCD 3.51.61 put into C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\IOSUBSYS the two files

BsUDF.VXD 3.5.16.1 B.H.A.
CDRBSVD.VXD 4.9.1.0 B.H.A.

and afterwards installing EasyWriteReader 3.3.2.0 added

BsUDFRDR.VXD 3.25 B.H.A.
INCDRM.VXD 1.0.0.7 Ahead

My final C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\IOSUBSYS lists as follows:

BIGMEM DRV 9,952 04-23-99 10:22p BIGMEM.DRV

23 file(s) 843,760 bytes

So far everything works OK; in particular, both CD-RW and CD-MRW formatted with older and current versions of InCD are read by the DVD-ROM drive.

Note that, even if you don't care about CD-MRW (Mt. Ranier), standard CD-RW formatted discs can't be read on a DVD-ROM drive without EasyWriteReader on 98SE (XP doesn't need it).

Here are additional points, which may or may not help you, but could be useful to others:

1. Although my daughter insisted on installing Windows Media Player 7.1, I removed its Adaptec burning plugin (but without disabling automatic updates, MS can still destroy your setup). Stay away from WMP 9 until the dust settles. Same for the Veritas plugin for WinAmp.

2. As for ASPI, the latest version isn't always best, and you could use ForceASPI to play around with candidates. (BTW, in my case Nero InfoTool only reports three original MS ASPI files.) And of course don't forget about the latest versions of BIOS and drivers for your motherboard, etc.

3. Can you test an IDE DVD-ROM in your box? If it works, you might consider switching.

Hope this helps. If more info is needed, let me know.

Most excellent. Thank you for so much detail. I'll continue to experiment and report back on progress. I do know one thing for the moment: this little file "INCDRM VXD 23,715 11-16-02 10:05p" causes a Windows Protection Error at boot up on my Windows 98SE box with InCD installed. I will look into this further.

Concerning the differences in our C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\IOSUBSYS listings:

1. My unsorted dir output also gives some indication about the order in which the various files were added to IOSUBSYS (this is not perfect however as DISKTSD.VXD was subsequently updated and NTMAPHLP.PDR somehow dangles at the end).

2. One major reason for our differences is that I installed the MS Windows 98 Second Edition 1394 Storage Supplement from

http://www.microsoft.com/windows98/downloads/contents/WURecommended/S_WUFeatured/1394/Default.asp

I needed it for FireWire, but apparently it also improves some other I/O aspects as well, and I've not heard any complaints about it. My advice is to install it; it shouldn't create additional problems, it might actually help, and it would make our setups closer.

3. The ASPI aspect might be more difficult to troubleshoot. Don't forget that Adaptec doesn't care about compatibility with other companies, and Ahead can't be expected to test everything that Adaptec offers.

4. We have some timestamp differences in NEROCD95.VXD; not sure if this is a pecularity of Nero installer or the fact that 5.9.9.17 had two subversions (I used the latest one).

5. Do you know the origin of your TRM390W.MPD? Adaptec again?

If nothing else works, you could try other UDF readers. My memory is fuzzy; I tried several, and some of them read non-MRW discs but deactivated MRW in InCD formatting, so I removed them, but since you don't need MRW, you could try. Here names like Software Architects (SAI) ring a bell, but not loud enough. Try Google.

Don 't give up!

TRM390W.MPD=SCSI host adapter driver from Tekram
NEROCD95.VXD= is version 4.5.0.14 (I'm using Nero ver. 5.9.9.17)
ASPI 4.60 (1021) is allegedly installed correctly and fully functional (I reverted to this version from ver 4.72).

I'll keep researching the issue. The process is always enlightening for me overall - so I don't mind too terribly much. Thanks a lot.

This is a link for Software Architects ReadCD-MRW

http://www.softarch.com/us/products/cdmrw.html

Apparently the free V1 has no MRW support, but you don't need it. If I remember correctly, it did read InCD CD-RW under my 98SE.

no dice! Thanks anyhow. As I've suggested before, this could very well boil down to the fact that my DVD-ROM (1999)Toshiba SCSI model SD-M1201 may =NOT= be multi-read compliant. If it is not, then all the tricks in the world are not likely to make this DVD-ROM read a CD-RW formatted in UDF - no matter whose reader I install.
In the past when I used DirectCD, I believe it was the fact that DirectCD would finalize the CD-RW (re-write the data in a format readable by my DVD-ROM) that made me think my DVD-ROM could read native UDF with a reader.

So why don't you check the SD-M1201 specifications? Google immediately came up with

http://www.toshiba.com/taissdd/techdocs/pdfs/psm1201.pdf

but I could only "View as HTML", not very readable.

Are you saying that my '99 notebook Toshiba drive is more capable than your SCSI miracle? It can't read any CD-RW, or just UDF ones?

On the Web, Toshiba has no clue about MultiRead... Their specs don't mention it even for the latest DVD-ROM drives, including mine. You could try to contact their regional representative, or headquarters.

I may just do that - and settle this question once and for all.
Thanks!
