I am using Win 98 SE and are having trouble reading CD-RW's . Is there a windows upgrade or other software that will allow me to read these CD's

Unlikley that it is windows 98, I use it fine. Most likely i would think that it is your cd drive. If its an 'older' model they are far less tolerant to the vagaries of a CD-R's; but before you consider a new one, go to the manufactures site and make sure you have both the latest drivers and Firmware installed.

Also, let us know the drives make and model.

Welcome PF1
Some older cd drives have problems reading CDRW. To test this try it another machine. However if you use CDR you should not have this problem. You can write more than once to a cdr, to do this donot finalize your cdr after writting to it.

if the cd has been written to using Direct cd or Drag N Drop or Incd you may need a UDF Reader.
Doo a search on Google for UDF Reader.
