AV rack
Win zip (i may have had this before)
ABBYY Finereader
Xaber 3d wizard
print me internet printing
nero media player

these ones are on my menu or prog list on start up menu...

winzip compresses files

ABBYY Finereader is part of your scanner software,it scans documents into word files.


As for Xaber 3d wizard,that maybe a configuration app for your video card(there is a line of xaber cards i believe)or it maybe some simple 3d program,i suggect u hit it and see what it is.

As for the print me internet printing...

A hardware solution to
remote printing. Users rent
PrintMe stations which
attach to a printer and
assign a printer ID to the
printer, accessible by other
PrintMe users.

Infrastructure required-PrintMe hardware device,
Static IP address, and
Internet connection

Setup Requirements-Rental and installation of
PrintMe hardware device
(recipient) and printer driver

Cost to receive documents-$995 per year per printer(whoa!)

Hotel applications only to
date. Limited otherwise.

Ring any bells?....or just open up a new kettle of fish(now,who actually keeps there fish in the kettle,surely that would spoil the brew)

AV Rack = is part of your sound card system.

Winzip is a compression tool. www.winzip.com/

Abbyy FineReader will have been installed as part of your scanner software.

Xaber 3D Wizard , try this link but it is driver related.

Nero MediaPlayer -

print me internet printing = No idea.

If you are using Win98 to XP, you can disable some of these items from your startup list. Various ways of doing it.

If they are in your Start > Programs > Startup > just drag the links out of there into your main Program List and they should not load at startup.
No reason for Abbyy, winzip, or Nero to start when you start the computer.

Other way to do it as well is Start > Run > type in msconfig > Press Enter > go to the StartUp List tab and remove the ticks from the items that you don't want starting up, do just the above 3 to start with as there is stuff in that list that you don't want to untick > Apply > Ok > Restart system > upon restart tick the box that you are using Selective Startup.

ok found out that print me is a add on / or whatever you call it of adobe acrobat reader (is that the old name or new name?)

so thats ok....
uninstalled that sprint reader thing it was only trial thing anyway, im not paying for it later.

nero thing will look into later, as im not a great fan of media player the new version.

and in cd is a copying thing or seems to be, so will check that one out to, whether it is easier than nero or whatever will be the one i use most then.

thanxs all for your help, its good to have others input which sometimes clears the fog of information overload... :D

ill keep you posted on progress. if any :p

ok opened in CD and it wont acknowledge there's a cd disk in the drawer so went to help options and it reads all this.....

System : IBM PC and PC/AT compatible computers
CPU : Pentium 90MHz or faster
OS : Microsoft Windows 98, Windows 95 OSR2 or later
Memory : 32 MB or more recommended
Hard Disk : 5 MB of available space for InCD
Monitor : SVGA (800 x 600) or higher resolution video card and monitor, 16 bit or higher system color
Supported Drives : InCD is updated frequently to support more drives. Please visit our web-site at http://www.nero.com to get the latest update.

* Unsupported drives cannot be used with InCD.

does this mean i cant use it? or something else needs to be set first?

ill do some more sifting but its no help if i cant run it then ......

found some more, im picking this is not compatable with my progs or something..

InCD needs to be permanently launched

InCD needs to be permanently launched, so you can write or delete from CD-RW discs at any time. After you have installed InCD, it is automatically launched whenever you boot your PC.

You will need to format blank CD-RW discs before using them
Blank discs need to be formatted as you would a floppy disk. You can also reformat a disc if you do not need the data already on it.

Reading InCD-formatted discs on other drives
Discs that use InCD cannot be read back on CD-RW drives that do not support InCD, CD-ROM or CD-R drives.

* InCD needs to be launched for discs to be read on supported CD-RW drives that support it. Another solution is to use the InCD UDF-Reader, available on your installer CD or from our website at http://www.nero.com

Using InCD with other packet writing software
InCD cannot coexist with other packet writing software on the same system. Uninstall the other packet writing software, before installing InCD. Refer to the relevant software manual for instructions on how to uninstall the other software.

any clearer ? cos it isnt for me....

goodness knows why its on my system then if no good for me...

InCD is part of Nero cd drive software.
It is used to create and write to CD-R and CD-RW disks.

13-10-2003, 01:01 PM
if you say so, but they both not working together at moment, or something .

im lost ....put this in the too hard pile for now.

InCD is most likely the reason your CD drawer doesn't open, as indicated in an earlier post I made.
InCD is used with CD-RW disks, but you don't *have* to have it.

If InCD isn't supported by your drive (its a bit hard to determine if thats the case from the above) then its even more likely to be the reason for the CD Drawer not behaving.

You dont *need* InCD at all, on XP.
Ininstall it.
It gets installed with Nero, but Nero works fine on its own.
