View Full Version : Unreadable June CD



10-06-2001, 10:11 PM
On the advice of a friend, I installed Adaptec's(Roxio's) free UDF Reader, supposed to fix cases where CDs made on CD/DVD writers unreadable in ordinary CD drives. Disc now readable, but did not autostart.Did PC World use a DVD writer ? Hope the replacement disc is not done the same way ....
Found later that UDF Reader did not like pre-June CDs so took it out again .
Answers anyone ??

I cannot get the original or the replacement CD to run. I have tried it on two different computers, each has a normal CD drive and CD-writer drive. No joy on all four drives.

An HP CD-writer drive can read some files on the CD if it is inserted holding Shift-key, most files lock up Windows Explorer and a reboot is required.
