This is a new problem that has come up to an already working solution in 5 other locations.

I have a Dell workstation running WinXP Pro, used as a file server. I have a batch file that uses NTBackup to create a backup file, zips the backup file to save space, and copies the backup file to a pre-formatted CD/RW disc. I installed a version of Sonic DLA (drive letter access) that is customized for Dell computers. I was able to format individual CD/RW media just fine. One new side comment is that the formatting - normally 12+ minutes - only took 1+ minutes to format - however, in trying to eject the disc, there is another 1 minute delay while the system is writing some additional information to the disc.

What I discovered is that there is another program installed - INCD.EXE and INCDSVC.EXE - that may be also controlling the CD/RW disc media. What I discovered is that in my batch file, when I come to the point of writing the file to the formatted CD/RW disc, the batch file seems to lock up - it never moves past the completion of writing the file to the CD. The file is on the CD but the program just seems to get stuck there. I never get to the final step of copying this file to another shared folder on another computer in the network workgroup.

Prior to this new procedure, the customer used Nero to write individual files to a rewriteable CD. Could it be that INCD.EXE is interfering with the completion of writing a file to a DLA enabled and formatted CD/RW disc? Can I just uninstall the INCD.exe and INCDSVC.exe programs? Are there any other programs that should be uninstalled as well?

Thanks for any clues to this little mystery.

INCDSVC.EXE

InCD server from Nero for CD-RW packet writing. If you want to use CD-RW discs as hard drive then don't remove it. If you don't kow InCD and don't understand this text then uninstall InCD from control panel to save memory.


absolutley harmless, an add-on for nero that lets you use CD-R and CD-RWs just like floppy disks


incd.exe (InCD) - Details
The incd.exe process is the main process for the InCD program. It allows you quick access when burning files to CD/RW. With it running, you can drag files onto a CD to have them instantly written, much like you would when copying files to a floppy disk or hard drive. If you use this feature of the Nero Burning ROM software, you should leave this process running.

Mike,
Thanks for the reply. I still think INCD.exe and/or INCDSVC.exe are interfering with SONIC DLA. I will probably uninstall the INCD programs to see if the problem of my batch file hanging goes away.

Related question - if I have formatted a CD/RW disc while INCD was installed (with the greatly reduced formatting to what I am used to), do you think the CD is formatted correctly, and can be used like a giant floppy disc without any writing errors? Or should I start with new CD/RW discs to keep the process more pure?
Jon

The formatting should not be different
