I installed DirectCD (part of version 4.01) on a Win2K box and now when I start the machine the services go crazy and I cannot get anything to run. The services and DirectCD service take up 100% of the CPU's time.

Anyone run into a similar problem and figured out how to fix it? I am going to try the recovery console in Win2K to rename the directCD executable so it won't start, but I am also afraid that one of the services has been messed up.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

What did we do before we had computers?

Not sure about the problem you're having, but 4.01 has quite a few problems. The 4.03 update fixes a lot.

Personally I think DirectCD is a pile of....

I just use EasyCD Creator, patched to 403b so it works with newer CDRWs

I really do not like DCD. It prevents me from putting the computer to sleep. Bah. I just write CDs not rewrite since then.

4.02 was the first version to officially support Win2k. If you check adaptec's sight they have a good list of what versions work with what. One time installed the old 3.x version of Direct CD on my 2k box. Got a nice blue screen at boot every time. Ended up having to reload the system.
