    Faced with the original problem I would have bought a 1 GB USB Flash Drive for around

    The manual for the software can be found here. This appears to be a formatting issue. Format information begins on page 14. HTH.

    DocWatson,

    Thanks but it is definitely formatted with the InCD format. It is recognized on one machine but not on the other. I thought perhaps it was a driver for the CD drive but there is no newer driver available.

    Some RW's MUST be closed before being able to be used by another machine.
    Is this the case here?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Dave,

    If it is the case it seems to me that it would defeat the purpose of InCD which is supposed to make a CD act like a diskette in that files can be copied to, replaced, erased, and transfered from the CD. At least that is my understanding.

    Thanks.

    Re: Transferring Files (XP SP2)

    I found this
    <hr>InCD 4 Reader
    The user-friendly additive tool for systems without MRW support
    This tool was developed to allow you to read discs written in MRW format on systems that do not support MRW and includes the UDF reader for all Windows operating systems.<hr>
    at InCD 4 Reader

    Is the other machine MRW compliant?

    Dave,

    Thanks for the link. I'm not sure about the MRW. I tried to look it up and just don't really understand what it is. I do know this, even though it means very little, both computers are within 6 month of each other as far as when they were purchased. The one that worked with the InCD was an XPP SP2 the one that didn't was an XP Home SP2. Because I couldn't get them to work I uninstalled InCD and went back to Roxio's Direct CD. It occasionally screws up but at least I can usually get the files transferred from one box to the other.

    Thanks again.

    You don't make it clear what your computers are, but if you want to transfer files you're a prime candidate for a network, and you may already have all of the hardware you need with the exception of a crossover cable (for file transfer between two machines only), which costs a few dollars, or a router and cables (if you want to have more than one machine online at a time). XP has a wizard that makes it easy to set up. You may be able to transfer in minutes data that you anticipate will take far longer.

    Easy, big fella. I think he was just tryin' to tell you he didn't KNOW if the two computers are in one building or not. Now, for my money: <blockquote><hr>...and I don

    We don't know how many users are involved, although it doesn't matter much. My ISP has quite a generous storage allowance, and I have multiple email addresses and a fairly high speed connection, which means that I can store data on that server by uploading it at one location, encrypted if I wish, and download it at another.

    peterg,

    Yes, sometimes I do that with a Yahoo email account that I have which has a 1 Gig. limit with a 20 Meg attachment allowance. I have just always found it quicker to use a CD as one would a diskette to transfer these files on a daily basis. For some reason Direct CD started acting up lately so when InCD didn't work I reinstalled Direct CD without the very latest updates and it seems to be working fine again, at least at the moment anyhow.

    Thanks.

    Re: Transfering Files (XP SP2)

    I would give serious consideration to Mr. Gray's earlier suggestion to use a 1GB "thumb drive" or flashdrive" for this job. There's no concerns with what format is what or if it will be compatable in another machine. If it has a USB slot, it's compatable !!! It is either a large floppy or a small, removable hard drive, depending on your point of view. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
