    Nero InCD in windows 10?


    Hello.
    I found an old CD-RW I made back in the Windows Me times, with some programming on it. I used Nero InCD to write to the disk to be able to overwrite new files when my programming went forward.
    But now I can't find any version of Nero InCD that can run in Windows 10, or at least I can't get it to run.

    Can anyone help? I (of course) don't have a Windows Me PC anymore

    I used Nero INCD for many years. But you should not have to have that software to read that CD-RW disk. The ability to re-write is due to the type of disk, not the software. But if you can't read that disk, it could be because the media degraded to the point that it no longer represents what was burned to it. Average shelf life of the data burned onto a CD is less than 15 years. If you can read it after 15 years your really lucky. Since Windows ME is almost 20 years old, I would guess that data is no longer readable.

    Packet writing CD burning method, e.g. InCD, Roxio drag to disc, etc is the most unreliable method. The discs are known to lose format and/or data.

    Considering the age, its probably in that "class".

    Here is a link for InCD Reader v.5.9xx : http://www.softpedia.com/get/CD-DVD-Tools/CD-DVD-Rip-Other-Tools/InCD-Reader.shtml


    It should be possible to install in Win 10. If problem arise, then try to install it in compatibility mode as Win 7 or do.
    When installed, You will have a UDF file reader, which You need to read InCD files. You can only read You're CD-RW or
    for that matter DVD+RW. If You're CD or DVD's are of a good quality maker a.k.a. Verbatim, and You are keeping them
    well away from sunlight, they should still be OK!

    Good Luck - og hav en god dag!

    I had problems with Nero some years ago and their native format, as I recall they finally had a version that gave some different formats to try for more universal usage but I got started with Sonic Solutions which has Roxio Easy CD and DVD Burning. Usually about $30 at Wal*Mart, don't need the full suite as I'm not into video editing/creating yet.

    The disk itself is in good condition. This is what I see when trying to open it:

    Nero InCD in windows 10?-ahead.gif
    Dear Customer,
    You are currently trying to read a disc in the Mt. Rainier format (CD-MRW/DVD+MRW).
    You are seeing this message, instead of the contents of the disc, because
    your system currently does not support the CD-MRW/DVD+MRW format.
    To enable you to add CD-MRW/DVD+MRW support to your system we have developed a
    complimentary software tool, the InCD EasyWrite Reader.

    To download the latest InCD EasyWrite Reader just visit our website at
    http://www.nero.com

    You can also install the InCD EasyWrite Reader provided on this disc by
    clicking here.

    Your Ahead Software Team

    I have tried to install the program from Gordon7 (mange tak for linket), but it seems not to install anything. I have tried all the compatible modes Win10 offer, but I still can't see anything but the above. And of course I have also tried to install the reader from the disc, but that don't work.

    If you are prepared to trust a third-party site, there's a download for InCD 6.6.5.100 available here...

    I do have CD-RW and CD-R disks from the Windows ME era, all are readable. That is more than I can say for some 3" floppy discs from the same era.

    However there were always problems with CD-RWs written with InCD type of format, DirectCD was Roxios version, which made me abandon it sometime ago.

    Always then used a simple Erase and Write in the normal way, much more reliable.

    The download referenced may not be much use as it's for Mt Rainier type disks a later variation where formatting was done at the same time as writing.
    It's likely that your writer back then did not have the capability. You may need an even earlier version.
    I did have Neros and Roxios, but both have now gone.

    Try here:
    http://www.roxio.com/enu/support/udf...e_updates.html
    http://download.cnet.com/Adaptec-UDF...-10021086.html
    The second one looks to be from the right era, obviously you may have to right click and run it in compatibility mode.
    I know it's for DirectCD, but anything is worth a try. Always found I could read DirectCD discs with Nero and vice versa at the time.
    It's small resident type of exe.

    I've had to recover data from floppies that clients had kept, found with Win7 and later they needed to be write-protected before inserting or would get screwed up, warned they needed to be formatted. Just something about later versions of Windows and older technology. I've kept a WinXP computer with 5.25" and 3.5" floppies [an Epson combination drive] plus a Zip250MB drive.

    If the InCD disc was written in UDF format, shouldn't Win10 be able to read it natively? It supports up to UDF 2.6.

    If the InCD disc was written in Mount Rainier format, then the issue of drive compatibility with MRW is a factor that could prevent access to the CDRW even if the proper drivers are active.
