315854 Windows 98 and Windows Me Error Message Resource Center
In Windows 95 or Windows 98, when you attempt to access a shared CD-RW disc over the network, you receive a fatal exception message in the Vredir.vxd file. Occasionally, you may be able to successfully access the share, but you may receive a fatal exception error message shortly after you gain access.
This behavior can occur because Adaptec DirectCD versions 2.0, 2.0a/s, 2.5a, and 2.5d, that are often bundled with the HP CD-Writer, write volume labels in Microsoft Windows NT in such a way that Windows 95-based and Windows 98-based client computers cannot read them properly. This error does not occur with Windows NT clients.
This behavior has not been reproduced with commercial CD-ROMs or with closed CD-R discs.
This behavior has been resolved in Adaptec DirectCD version 3.0 and later.
