Write-protected error with CDRW with InCD, FileCD, or backup software
Posted on 2002-06-22
I have Win98SE and Cyberdrive CDRW drive "16x 12x 40x" (CW038D) with the lastest firmware. I'm aware of the disc's need to be formatted for the packet writing software. Here's my problem:
My system will not allow me to drag and drop files to my CD burner anymore. I get an 'error copying file' saying, "Access is denied: Makesure that the disk is not write protected or full or that the file is not currently in use."
The file is not in use. The media is not full and obviously not write-protected! I've tried numerous different discs and speeds of discs. They all work with Nero. All along, Nero CD mastering software works with both CDR and CDRW so it is not the media or the burner. Using the packet writing software "InCD", I've tried the most recent updates and even tried to unistall it and then install the orignal version from the CD. Still no luck.
I completely removed InCD to try "FileCD". I could get that to work but with some glitches or limitations. Trying to drag and drop to my burner would still not work. I then realized that something else must be the problem because of this and that my backup software will not work anymore either.
The Device Manager shows no problems. Does anyone have any ideas on what may be causing the problem?
