UDF Read CD Rom Driver

By brian.sullivan ·
I have an NT 4.0 machine and a cyberdrive 40X CD ROM drive. I used to be able to read rewritable CDs after installing UDF_read_v102. I have re-formatted my hard disk and re-installed NT 4.0 to SP 6 and now I cannot get my CD ROM to read. If I start the PC without the CD Burner an event viewer dialog box displays and says that a driver could not start, the driver is the UDF. Yet when I have the CD burner on the event viewer dialog does not appear. There is a tie-up there I'm sure but I don't seem to have found it. I have uninstalled and re-installed the drivers and updated to Adaptec 4.0 (with built in UDF)still no joy without the CD Burner in place. Any suggestions?

Have you tried pulling the IDE cable and power cable out, then putting them back in so it reconfigures it as a new device.

Also if you do have 2 CD rom drives make sure the Burner is set to Master and daistchain it to the other CD rom drive and set that to slave.
If you have already tried these, mail back with a little more info on your system.
Good Luck...
