    CD-RW in XP (Continuing Saga) (Win XP SR-1)

    Thanks to everyone who helped me figure out the problems I was having using previously recorded CD-RWs. To bring you up to date - some of the files/CDs were unreadable. I downloaded IsoBuster and was able to recover all files. I then reformated the CD and wrote the recovered files to it - works fine. I also figured out that most of the problems occur with CDs created with Roxio's UDF reader. I now use Nero and Nero won't recognize the UDFs. I downloaded an updated UDF driver from Roxio and it installed fine, however that renders InCD [Nero] useless. I decided the reformatting process works fine for me and uninstalled the UDF reader.

    The latest issue: I still have problems moving [some] files on a CD-RW as well as renaming folders. For instance on a new CD-RW [created with Nero after the install of XP] I created a new folder and then tried to rename it. I got an error message "Cannot rename New Folder. The parameter is incorrect." I also got the same message if I tried to move a folder inside another folder.

    Are there settings in XP that restrict these functions?

    TIA

    There are no settings within XP itself to restrict what you are trying to do. It could be related to the software you are using. I do not use CD-RW media in this fashion so I am admittedly at a loss to provide you with further insight. As cheap as the media is, I find it more to my liking to burn things to CD and forget about it.

    Some media is not conducive to re-use, regardless of the label. There is definitely a difference between manufacturers when it comes to CD-R media. Have you tried a different brand?
