CDROM wont read CD

By nhughes79 ·
One of my users came to me with a problem regarding a CD. She obtained the CD from a printing firm whom run MAC's. Apparentely the files on the CD were Paint ShopPro files. When the CD is inserted and we try and access the D drive we get the following error message:

D:\is not accessible
incorrect function

We do not run any MAC's at our office.... just PC's. Could this be a compatibility problem
Any help would be gratefully received
Kind regards

Neil Hughes

This may or may not be related to the fact that the Cd was created on a Mac. There are certain standard CD file systems that EVERY OS w/cd-rom support can read. Because of this, I can insert a MacOS installation Cd into my pc and read it. I can'tinstall anything, but I can see what is on the CD.

However, there are ways to burn a CD such that it can only be read by one or the other (PC or Mac). In the end, it depends on what software was used to burn the CD. My first guess would be thatyou have a bad burn. If that isn't the case, then you need to have the source files re-burned to a standard ISO9660 format.

if Your Cd reads another cds, the problem could be that come from a Mac version. And also you know that cd have 3 characteristic, yellow, orange, I don't remember the other one, but if is orange compatible, it would be able to read any kind of cd, it could be a record cd or other ones, check that.
