ok, i'm back again with a problem ..
i burnt a DVD file few days ago,, nero showed no ERROR's while burning the video file,, but after it finished burning the dvd,, i tried to access it, but i get this message
F:\ is not accessible
i did a google search, found some solutions, none worked for me
Right-Click on the drive w/ the problem
and then check the "Enable CD Recording On This Drive" box.
as you can see, i dont have a recording tab in there !!! ( there's a blank DVD in the drive )
I then went to www.nero.com and found InCD uninstaller : go to website, click on support then clean tools then InCD clean tool and downloaded and ran that. Rebooted and the Drives all worked
RE-activated Norton it all still worked
went back to www.nero.com - downloads selected nero 6 ultra edition major downloads looked down the list found inCD downloaded that. Rebooted and everything still worked. I hope it stays that way!
Thanks very much to everyone for their advice and thoughts and good luck to all
i tried that, with no luck.. after uninstalling incd & rebooted,, same message showed up again.... i'm using Nero 220.127.116.11 by the way
Go to the Start Menu, then click on Run...
Type in "regedit" and hit the Enter key or click the OK button.
Once the Registry Editor is up, navigate through the folders at the left (by clicking the "+" signs) until you get down to this location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
Click on that Explorer folder/key. In the right side of the registry editor you should have an entry/value called NoCDBurning. Double-click that name.
In the window that opens you will see a place for "Value data." A 1 here enables NoCDBurning, meaning you will have NO CD burning. This will definitely stop you from being able to use your CD-RW drive to write. So if you have a 1 here (as I did) then this may be your problem. Replace the 1 with a 0 to disable NoCDBurning, thereby enabling CD Burning. (Sheesh! Did Microsoft really have to go about this backwards?) Click on OK.
heres a picture of my regestry
i dont have a entry/value called NoCDBurning..
this is what Device Manager show
that ! on Standard ide hard disk.. i tried to update the drive, but after it rebooted the system,, it's still there., it might be the problem?
i still can play CD's ( installation, music, video.. etc ) in the DVD drive, but get the F:\ is not accessible
Incorrect function message whenever i insert a blank DVD ( DVD+R, Verbatim 16X )
