    i have a toshiba DVD in my notebook...i installed the adaptec udf reader so i could read some cds which i couldnt read before...anyways, now the thing doesnt read any cd that not legal (and by legal i mean like the commercial ones like legal ofice, legal windows xp, legal quake 3, bla bla bla). it cant read any cdr, cdrw...and before i installed the reader it could read MOST of them....
    anyone know how to solve this? ive tried uninstalling the reader but i cant, it gives me a really weird error with some weird code...

    thx, apu

    UDF Reader

    Earlier versions of Adaptec Easy Cd Creator use this programme which was written by them, but it does interfer with later versions from 5.0 onwards when installed separately.
    I have successfully loaded this extracted UDF on to a lap top to read Cdrs and CDRws using Win 98.
    Your version is likely to be corrupt or possibly an old version.
    Look at www.roxio.com. for updates.
    Go to "search" , "find" in Start Menu and look for any files under "UDF" and manually delete these, including the uninstaller if it will not uninstall itself.
    Again I have done this on Win 98 and XP.
    Otherwise you may have a software conflict , maybe involved with other CDRW software.
