Burned CD's do not work.

By lchacon ·
I have found that some CD's that are burned do not work in others CD Drives. I would like to know what the cause this could be.

Older computers may or may not be able to recognize CDRs. Also older computers may need the CDR to be "closed" (unable to be written to again) in order to be recognized. And lastly, maybe the drive lens needs to be cleaned.

if the cd was burned using say,easy cd creator for example & you selected to use direct cd wizard.
it gives you several choices, one of which is to make the cd only read & writable though a specific drive letter such as E drive.
the other is to make it readable through most cd rom drives.
so it just depends on what method was used to burn the cd in the first place.

Do a search on UDF or Universal Data File Format. This is what is causing some CD's not to be read. If you are using the burned CD's in older than 1997 drives, try using CD-R CD's as CD-RW CD's will not work as the older drives do not support UDF. You might find on the ineternet that you can download a UDF support patch, but I was unable to find it. Car CD players also like the CD-R instead of CD-RW. Also, some CD burn programs will let you choose how you will record on them as in answer #2.While it may not solve all of the read problems some drives have with burned CD's, it's worth a try. Stick with CD-R CD's for use on older systems and stereo's and also file backups such as Ghost image files. Best wishes.

Hi, Burned cds don't like to work in cdroms that are less than 24 speed. I have ran across this problem many times. Hope this helps.
