Hello there
I have a problem with win xp... I'm installing a new system for my cousin. now the thing is, I try to read a burned disc and some of them just wont work with XP. It tells me that the disc is unusable or not formatted for use with windows. But when I try to load it on my system (win 2K) the disc works perfectly... this happens to a number of discs not just one... some work.. some dont. Any ideas will be welcome...

The system running XP is:
Pentium 4 2.4 GHZ
LG DVD/CD
Geforce 4 mx400.

My system running win 2K is:
AMD XP 1.7 GHZ
Toshiba DVD/CD
Geforce 3 ti200

Thank you in advance
Guy

I've had no issues with CD's burned on W2K reading on XP, so I'd have to suspect either a media compatibility issue or a defective drive on one end or the other.

I'd start with a different brand of media. I'd check CD Media World for a description of the various CD-R manufacturing processes, maybe select a different process disk for your next try.

You can then try to read the CD's you've generated on a couple of other systems, and I'd try CD's burned on another system in the new one you're putting together. Finally, if you can find a spare CD drive, try another drive.
