Default Roxio UDF Reader latest version does not install? (Roxio claims it is standalone, though)

Well, I do not understand this, and I'm about to e-mail Roxio about this
nonsense.

http://www.roxio.com/enu/support/udf...e_updates.html

"This is a free download for the convenience of users who do not own Roxio
software however no support is provided for this tool"

Sounds OK.

But once I try to install the .exe provided on that site, I get:

"The Roxio UDFReader has not been detected"

WTF???!

They say this is for users _who do not own_ Roxio software, so why is there
a requirement to detect the reader anyway?

Someone with the same problem at

posted a link to Roxio's Japanese website (translated), which says
there are TWO files you have to download and install to make
this work. I verified that the download links are live, but
didn't install them:

See this (5/14/05) post:
http://groups.google.com/group/comp....4aec559d3cb116

Here's an older version:
http://www.download.com/Adaptec-UDF-...4-9497911.html

BTW, you should NOT be needing the udf reader if you are on Winxp.
(Vista supports udf read and write.)

The UDF support built into XP is violently incompatible
with DCD prior to 5.1

Why "violently" incompatible?

How do I read DirectCD3 CD-RW disks in Windows XP?
Windows XP claims they are empty


XP's UDF reader is new, different and
incompatible with the standard.

Mark,

thank you so much! Yes this should do the trick then. So you have to install
the 5.x version before installing the 7.x update. Now this is nasty. They
could tell the customers, couldn't they.

There is a UDF standard. At least until recently
only Roxio was fully compliant with it.

I believe that XP's read capability is also fully compliant.
