Burning issues & invisible files



Hi,
I am evaluating V5.02 and like what I've seen so far, but...
When I try to burn the slide show to cd for DVD viewing the files
disappear. The slide show definately burns but XP cannot see the
files and the DVD player tells me the disc is empty.
I am using Win XP and NTI CD Maker 2000plus to create a disc from
the iso image (which XP sees as a winrar file?). I have also tried
to burn the an .nrg file with my software, and also nipped round to
my mates and used his nero. Same results each time. Does anyone
have any ideas?

Thanks

Dave....

Burning issues & invisible files



Hi, Dave. What you're describing are symptoms of having copied the
file to CD instead of burning it as an image. Your mate's Nero
software should have a selection on the menu something like "Disk
image or saved project" (that's what my Nero Express has) on its main
menu. When an image file (like the .nrg file) is burned as a disk
image, as opposed to simply copying it to a CD, it'll work in a DVD
player that's capable of playing video CDs--some older ones aren't.

Apologies if you've tried that and my advice missed the mark. See
the Troubleshooting link in Xatshow's Help file, if you've not done
so already.

My best advice, though: V5.10 Beta 7 has its own built-in CD burning
function so you don't need either Nero or EZCD Creator software (or
NTI as you have). I've used it and it works well. On the VideoCD
DVD "Settings" tab, under CD Writer File Type, choose "Use Built-In
CD Writer." After you've Created the VideoCD slideshow, one of the
buttons that will come up will be one to burn the CD using the built
in writer. Press that one and away you go. To find a link to that
version, look back in the messages on this forum to either late
September or early October. Look for a message announcing
availability of that (beta) version, which so far has worked
seamlessly for me.

Best of luck!

Lee

Need to view Invisible hidden files on a CD rom

I have HardDrive Regenerator v1.51.
It creates a bootable CD-rom which works fine. BUT
It only boots from the CD-R burner and not from my DVD player drive.
My DVD Drive does not even recognize that this disk is loaded.
The real problem is that I can not view any of the files on the CD. Even in safe mode or from DOS.
DOS tells me their are 0 files on the disk.
How is this possible ?
I am guessing it is some sort of copy protection.
I want to know how this was done, so I can do it to other programs I write and burn.
Any Ideas how I can view these files ?
I have Win XP and ME. Attrib, Dir and xcopy are of no help.
