I installed a used TDK (24/10/40) CD drive in my Dimension 8100 machine and then installed the Nero 5.9x version with InCD. Once in, my CD wouldn't read/recognize other discs, not even commercial text discs. It only recognized InCD formatted CD-RW discs. I uninstalled Nero but now my CD ejects any disc except the specially formatted InCD discs. I've run System Mechanic (a registry repair tool), I've checked the device manager and the system information but cannot find anything that works.I installed a used TDK (24/10/40) CD drive in my Dimension 8100 machine and then installed the Nero 5.9x version with InCD.

I suggest you get rid of InCD, it's nothing but trouble. Packet formatting is a very unreliable way to store your data.

Thanks - I was thinking of buying a better packet writing program - now I won't. I already un-installed InCD and tried to restore my computer to a prior date but neither worked. I'm at a dead end.

I tried the nero clean tool bundle but it didn't work. I looked at the Registry Fix program that was linked to that site. Do you think it is worth buying? Somehow, I doubt if it would work if the Nero tool didn't. Maybe I'll try e-mailing nero. Thanks anyway - I sure thought that would work.

Thanks for all your help but neither one worked. The autofix program found problems but couldn't fix them. I have an e-mail in to Nero (InCD company) so I'm hoping they will be able to help.
