mt. rainier format - can read cd rw disks

  pookie 12:53 25 Jun 2004


i recently formatted/reinstalled xp home edition. i have put on nero 5.5 (which I have used prior to reinstall ok). however, now my cd rw drive won't read any previously recoreded cd rw disks (back ups/etc). it brings up a message saying that my system does not support mt. rainier format. i've uninstalled and reinstalled nero but it's still the same. also, i can't burn cd's now.

any ideas?

many thanks

click here Someone had this same problem with Nero some while ago.I think (from memory) they also had Nero 5.5. Have you tried their web site to upgrade your product. Sorry,can't offer much else.

You need to install InCD 4.0. If your drive is Mount Rainier compatible InCD will set it up as a default MR drive.

many thanks and sorry for delay in my reply. i downloaded incd 4 but when that didn't work i downloaded incd easywrite reader 4 as well and now all works ok. only problem is that whilst it's fine for all new backups etc, it doesn't recognise any cd rw disks that have backups on them from old version of incd, for me this doesn't matter but it might for others.
