Thanks and regards!
My computer shows a "CD-ROM Drive", most of the time. If I put a blank DVD+R in the drive, nothing changes. When I try to open the disk, I get the message "Not accessible", thus my computer recognizes nothing.
I have not tried InCD when I get these issues. However, when I right-click on the loaded drive, then select either "InCD Format" or "InCD Erase", I get a menu with "Start" grayed out. So I guess InCD doesn't recognize the disk either.
When I leave the blank +R in the drive, open Nero and burn material onto the disk, it works fine. Then when I remove and replace the disk in the drive, it is recognized, although I still can't use the right menu options "InCD Format" and "InCD Erase".
Now if I remove the disk, the drive is a "DVD-RW Drive" in My computer.
And, yes, if I start with an RW disk, all options are available, unlike the +R disk.
So am I to understand that InCD has 'taken over' the management duties of the My Computer icon for this drive, that InCD recognizes only blanks for +RW, and that it won't work with +R disks, blank or not? Should I leave InCD installed? Is there a way to select only certain options for InCD, and let the system automatically read the blank +R media, or let Nero open every time I put a blank in?
