Prassi abCD/Nero V.5.0

by rositam / February 24, 2004 3:18 PM PST

I have a Prassi abCD Rewriter Disk and Nero V.5.0 Burning Rom. It worked just fine on My Windows ME. I upgraded to Windows XP and it tells me that I can't install my Prassi abCD because it does not install with WIndows NT and 2000. Now I can't write CD's - also my Nero 5.0 will only come up with an image file. Where to from here? Thanks

NEW CDRW drives and software are found every week from 10 to 20 dollars. Sell your older drive and cut your loss.

TRY updating NERO from their web site and see if that fixes it.

TRY disabling the XP IMAPI as noted at

The image recorder issue is simply NERO didn't find a suitable CDRW or that IMAPI is interferring.

Thanks - I had previously tried to upgrade to Nero 5.5 and saved the file. But when I tried to set up from the file, it wouldn't work. So I presumed I ws on the wrong track - however, went back and downloaded direct. It works great. So what is the Prassi abCD - is it a packet writing program for formatting the CD's only. I gather it's not necessary for my burning!! One other small problem when I go to help on my Nero Program, it tells me I am missing a file - is that fixable?

Nero's "InCD" is based on Prassi abCD packet writing software.

Some older OEM burner packages shipped with Nero and Prassi abCD.

Read the information from this link:
Bundled software you need to get maximum performance from your CD-RW drive is provided with the MP7200A.

Hope this helps.

I have a similar problem & now that I have upgraded to 2000, I have a lot of data I need to convert. I have partitioned my hard drive & have installed 98 on one part, but have lost my CD with abCD on it. Do you know where I can get a copy of 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?
