You may be correct, the problems may be limited to the â€œpacket writingâ€ software, although I know that Lite-On had a specific note about Nero software drivers causing â€œillegal discâ€ errors on burns for some of their models. And, I have seen two cases where DVDDecrypter could not burn because of this (both on Lite-On drives). I can no longer find that note.
From Neroâ€™s web site:
â€¢ Driver conflicts - If you have or had any other CD recording software installed, please uninstall this software and remove any drivers it may have left behind. Roxio's CD creator software and WinOnCD software are the most common programs that do this. But VOB's software as well as RecordMax Now software also will do this on occasion.
When you install EasyCD Creatorâ„¢, the Roxioâ„¢ UDF Reader is installed as well. This driver could conflict with InCD 4 in that it prevents the user from getting full read-write access to InCD-formatted discs, only a read access is granted.
This conflict can be prevented by disabling the Roxioâ„¢ UDF Reader. This task has been made easy to achieve, thanks to this Roxioâ„¢ UDF Reader Control tool.
Its usage is extremely simple:
1. Please run the RoxioUDFReaderControl.exe file.
2. If the Roxioâ„¢ UDF Reader has been detected on the user's system, it can either be enabled or disabled by accordingly checking or unchecking the avalaible checkbox, then clicking on [OK].
3. Rebooting the system is necessary for the change to be taken into account (you only need to reboot when a change has been made).
From Roxioâ€™s web site:
3. Remove any other Packet Writing Software
a. Click on "Start" and select "Control Panel".
b. Double-click on "Add/Remove Programs" icon.
c. Look for any other CD Burning or Packet writing software such as:
â€¢ Ahead Nero / INCD
â€¢ Veritas RecordNow / DLA
â€¢ HP RecordNow
â€¢ Sonic MYDVD
If you locate any of the listed software please remove it from your computer then restart your PC.
And, I am not suggesting that everyone would be afflicted. Only some suffer from the conflicts. It can depend on a lot of things (as you can tell from the above notes), even including which version of Windows you might be running.
