    Nero burning problem

    I am uncertain which board this query should be addressed to. After burning data folders ( which are completely normal in My Documents) to CD and DVD using Nero6, the discs have only IE7 icons as folder and file symbols, with no readable content. This issue has arisen only since I installed IE7. Would there be a weird file assocation problem?
    Your advice is eagerly awaited!
    Many thanks
    Dianne
    PS Have just tried a burn using the native XP function, with the same weird result.

    Re: Nero burning problem

    Dianne,

    I just did a test burn using Nero Express [data disc] in Nero 7.5.7.0, which shouldn't matter and it worked as expected. The disc was ejected after the session and I re-inserted it back into the drive, it autoplayed as expected and looking at the "icon" for the disc in Windows Explorer, it had the expected "CD" icon. I did all this with IE7 open. Are you running the FINAL version of IE7, downloaded from Microsoft, or is it a beta version or perhaps as some have reported, a "Yahoo-branded" copy of IE7, which is known to have issues.

    Re: Nero burning problem

    Indeed it is the final version, downloaded from the MS site a few days ago. I am going to uninstall IE7 and see what happens. My data backups are precious. Must check my most recent Acronis TI image and see what lurks therein......................

    Re: Nero burning problem

    To follow up on my explorations: have found that the files and folders are on the CD using IsoBuster, and are accessible using this software. It appears that the IE7 icon has taken over from the folder icon, and has also associated itself with the various file types e.g. Excel, Word, PPT and Adobe pdf. There is a variant for each of these. I have attached one example (Word). Ah sweet mysteries of computing life...........

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by skitterbug on 25-Oct-06 08:03. Added to my post!)</P>I wonder if rebuilding the icon cache might help? TweakUI - part of Windows XP Powertoys - has this feature included with lots of other helpful settings. Just my <img src=/S/2cents.gif border=0 alt=2cents width=15 height=15>

    ps: Just so you are aware, there is a warning on the dialog box in regarding to rebuilding icons - Repairing icons may cause icons to lose any custom positions.

    Re: Nero burning problem

    Thanks for that tip. I haven't yet had to use that function of TweakUI. I wimped out and uninstalled IE7, and got my folder and file icons back, but will try again at the weekend, using your suggestion. Thank you for the tip on the warning.
    Cheers

    Re: Nero burning problem

    IsoBuster is data recovery software for CDs & DVDs. And from your screenshot, I noticed a sliver of what looks like a Word icon behind the IE7 icon. I'd assume that it's the same for each file type. This would seem to indicate that Nero or the burn process itself (since you say it happens with Windows burning program too) is trashing the data during the transfer to CD or DVD and If you don't have IsoBuster installed, Windows is substituting the IE7 icon for the unknown program. I'd look int the possibility that something is wrong with the drive itself. But I admit I'm speculating on this.

    Looks like there's something wrong with IE7. My what a surprise. <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

    Re: Nero burning problem

    Agreed- whoever would have guessed!
    Each folder on the burned CD had the IE7 icon, and each file type had the IE7 icon with a bit of the relevant symbol peeping out- e.g Excel and PPT. Quite attractive, but very disconcerting.
    Back with IE6, all icons are restored. But of course I can't resist trying again......................

    Re: Nero burning problem

    Let us know how it works out. I for one, will not be installing IE 7 for a while. At least not until we stop hearing stories like yours here in the Lounge.

    Re: Nero burning problem

    Well, there are ALWAYS going to be some that have problems with ANY new application... we do recognize this, don't we? And in most instances the problem is NOT with the application itself but with either "user error" or conflicts with how one's particular system is configured and/or with other specific applications already installed. I am sure Dianne has a problem after installing IE7.... but is the problem with IE7 or with something else? There are countless others who have installed IE7 and do not have Dianne's problem; I'm one of them. So, would it not be logical to conclude that there is something "unique" on her system which is contributing to the problem and IE7 simply exposes it or results in a conflict? To install IE7 or not to install IE7 is a personal choice, of course. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> But if one is honest, the overwhelming majority of people who have installed and are now using IE7 do not have Dianne's problem or any other problem, significant or otherwise. In short, IE7 is not just another "Microsoft blunder", but a greatly improved and welcomed update to Internet Explorer and one which I am very happy with. <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/dance2.gif>

    Re: Nero burning problem

    I agree that there will always be problems with new applications. Yes, WE do recognize this (whoever We might be). It just seems to happen with more regularity with Microsoft products. After all, they are still patching and updating XP after 5 years and are trying to push Vista out the door (I'm sure it will get there sometime next year) before it's ready and Stevo is already saying that MS will never take five years to develop another OS again. <img src=/S/disappointed.gif border=0 alt=disappointed width=15 height=15>

    We all have our opinions about these things. I'm happy that you are enjoying IE7 and I imagine one day I will too.

    Just not today. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Nero burning problem

    Oh crap!!! Following that logic, they are still after all patching UNIX 40 years after pushing it out the door. They are still patching every version of Linux after x years of pushing it out the door. They are still patching Firefox after n years of pushing it out the door. Even the 'wonder company' Apple regularly releases patches. New versions of the afore mentioned software appear regularly containing little new functionality and lots of fixes. It is pointless to continue to bash Microsoft whenever possible. Just realize that every software vendor says the newest version of anything is the BIGGEST, BEST, etc. etc. and will shortly thereafter release patches.

    Re: Nero burning problem

    Amen! You preach it Joe...... I stutter! <IMG SRC=http://www.the-highway.com/Smileys/rofl6.gif> Let's also not forget that Microsoft is miscreant enemy #1. If these same dimwits focused their evil intents upon Apple, Linux, Firefox, Adobe, Corel, et al as they do currently upon Microsoft, these same companies would be racing around trying to issue patches to fix the holes that were beforehand not even known. To use a more individual example, one assumes their house is relatively secure until some thief breaks in and steals your most precious worldly goods. So, you "update" your home by adding a burglar alarm. But these same thieves have it in for you and simply figure out a way to bypass your expensive "burglar-proof" alarm system. So, you add bars to the windows and doors. But again, these thieves procure a tool to cut through the bars in a matter of seconds. And so it goes.... !! You have basically three options open to you: 1) Keep updating/patching your house or 2) build a new house where it is virtually impenetrable but unlivable or 3) quit and move.

    It's easy to play the proverbial arm-chair quarterback and spout off about how insecure Windows/Office/IE is AFTER someone hacks it. But I for one would just love to see some of Microsoft's most vicious critics (no personal references intended here <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>) sit down and come up with an impenetrable operating system and/or application first time out and which would be as feature-rich.

    <img src=/S/igiveup.gif border=0 alt=igiveup width=31 height=23> Just followin' the "company" line, Joe. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    This is, after all, Woody's Lounge. The same Woody who made his reputation finding "bugs" in Microsoft products. <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>

    I'm not disagreeing, so much as playing devil's advocate. I simply don't see the point of being the fist on on my block to have problems with my system because I installed a product that hasn't at least been on the open market, so to speak, for a few months, and had the time to have most of the real-world kinks ironed out. I'm just offering an alternate perspective on the upgrade process. "Wait and see. Patience is a virtue." <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>
