Nero "InCD" constantly writing to disk???

by grasshopper / February 5, 2004 11:26 AM PST

I recently installed Nero "InCD" to work with my cd burner, allowing me to use a cdrw disc like a floppy. Now for some reason I can't run my defrag because something keeps writing to the harddrive and it keeps having to start over. I don't really want to uninstall the program because I could see it being useful at times, but I also don't like the idea of something running in the background and creating other problems for the odd time I want to use a disc like a floppy. Does anyone know if I can disable it and then only enable it when I want to use it? I've narrowed it down and I KNOW the problem has 'something' to do with "InCD" because if I hit ctrl\alt\del and end task for InCD everything goes back to normal.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.

well, it looks like you'll have to complain to Nero and find out why they write to the drive. as for starting and stopping it whenever you need to, there should be no problem provided you don't have a writeable disk in the drive that hasn't been closed. which version of Windows are you running anyway? WinXP has this builtin. some versions of Windows 2000 and Me also have this builtin.

I am running win98 at the moment...and it doesn't seem to matter whether I have a writable disc in or not, although I may have used the wrong terms in explaining...I am not really sure it is actually 'Writing' anything to the disc...but it's definately 'using' it. The light on the front by my power/reset button constantly flashes AND I can't defrag with either my windows defrag OR the defrag/optimizer built in to Norton system works...That is UNTIL I hit ctrl/Alt/Del and end task on InCD...then everything is fine again.

the light should always be flashing from Windows 95 onwards. nonetheless, since the problem only started happening since you installed Nero, the only two options are to contact Nero support and find out if you can turn it off, or stop using Nero and uninstall it.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
