Windows XP unable to see files on CD

By ctim ·

I have a client who uses Windows XP to write file to CD. When they have finished the writing process these files cannot be seen on the CD, although, if they move the CD to another machine they are visible. Also, if you insert a CD that has been written you cannot see these files either. However, in the past (about 2 months ago) I have installed programs from CD previously using written CDs.

This PC uses a DVD+/-RW to write files to CD using Windows CD burner. Although, I have installed Nero to enable the machine to write to DVDs.

Any ideas?

Did the machine have Roxio installed?

Roxio and Nero still/never play so well with each other.

Try and make the CD 'Compatible' for use with other machines. Re-write the CD and then ensure that you complete the compatibility part and all should be OK.

Please post back if you have any more problems or questions.

Window xp cd files problem

I think this is the problem of CD Drive because there is no problem with Windows XP any where.

check your Hardware and Nero software and install it once again.
