can't read UDF formatted CDRW IN XP

  CHRISBORTH 21:37 07 Apr 2004

I have recently upgraded my OS to Windows XP from Windows 98. I had Easy CD Creator 4 installed on the 98 system. I backed up all my data including details of passwords for web pages etc on a cd rw disc.
Following the installation of XP I now find that I can’t access the data on the cdrw. XP says the data on the cd is UDF, but doesn’t identify each individual folder and file. I have checked the Microsoft windows website and downloaded a UDF reader patch without success. Also Easy CD Creator 4 will not work on XP.
Does any one know how to sort this out, other than reverting back to Windows 98, or will I have to upgrade to a more recent Easy CD Creator?

An upgrade should do it for you.

Get the latest Nero - click here= or Easy CD Creator - click here= . Before buying determine with the seller they are genuine CDs & not blank-faced copies.

Good luck, G

I've just tried the patch on the Roxio web site. Still no luck. looks like i'll have to buy an upgrade.
Thanks for your help.

I think you'll have to upgrade Easy CD Creator. Version 4 doesn't work with XP. Even the original Version 5 needs a patch for it to work with XP.
