    Default More help needed

    I have six dvd's with files etc written to them. I did them on my old computer. Now when I put one in my drive, it won't read it. I get the message "CD not formatted. Do I want to format it."

    What am I supposed to do to copy my dvd's to new hard disk?

    I used Ashampoo to write the disks. When it said they were finished I just clicked on exit.

    I checked them and they all seemed to be complete and OK.

    I would run that program again and see if its got a finalise option it in somewhere.

    If it has this option, you may have to put those DVD's in again and make sure theyre finalised.

    Or else I doubt anything will be able to read them.

    Jack, does your new pc have WinXP - the same OS as the old one?
    If so, then do you have Ashampoo installed?
    Are you using a different brand of DVD reader?

    Got it sorted.
    The dvd's I was having trouble with are all rewritable. I tried again with "use once" disks and had no problems at all. Funny.

    It seems Ashampoo just finishes the disk off without asking.
