Can't add files to CD-RW w/ UDF format

By rlphillips ·
I have formated CD-RW with Roxio and Nero InCD as UDF. On my T30 IBM laptop I can read and add files and read after adding files or changing. If I take the CD-RW to another PC and using UDF drag and drop a file to it, I cannot read the files on the CD-RW on the T30 laptop.
The drive will read CDR's always.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Can't add files to CD-RW w/ UDF format

by TheChas In reply to Can't add files to CD-RW ...

I believe that you have a slight alignment, or compatibility issue between the 2 CD-RW drives.

Also, if 1 PC has Roxio, and the other has Nero, that itself can cause CD-RW errors.

CD-RW disks work best when you perform the Drop & Drag operation with the drive that the disk was originally formatted on.

If there are any differences in the laser alignment between the 2 drives, it will affect CD-RW disks more than it will CD-R disks.

It also is not advised to have both Roxio and Nero onthe same PC.
Nero does have utilities that you can install to aid in switching between the 2 programs.

I recommend that you decide which program you like better, and install it on both the PC and the laptop.
