I've stored some files on CD (a year ago) and left the discs 'open' so I
could add more files later on. However, I've moved to another city and can't
find a computer that will recognize that my CD has any files on it at all!
Any help is greatly appreciated.

Find a computer that has Roxio's CD-DVD Creator installed (including the
Drag-to-Disk component).

Thanks, Richard. Unfortunately, ALL the machines around here use NERO (I'm
on a college campus) for handling media stuff, and it was of no help. In
fact, my current machine (a Gateway) doesn't even recognize the disc at all.
The external CD drive (an iomega) shows the disc but doesn't read any files.
Still, I'll keep in mind the Roxio solution you proposed. Thanks again.

Check with the Roxio site. They have a free UDF utility that you can
install and access CDs created with their application. I am not sure if the
utility will allow you to close the CD, but you should be able to copy the
files and create a new non-UDF CD.

Don:
Thanks. I know the disc was not created with Roxio, but rather with Windows
Explorer, I think. Still, I'll give it a shot.

Jay.

Windows Explorer has never supported CD burning. The current burning utility
included with Windows XP does not support UDF {packet writing} format.

If you had Roxio installed on your old computer and dragged and dropped
files from Windows Explorer to a CD, you were actually using the Roxio UDF
support. If you had Nero installed, you would have been using its UDF
support. While both Roxio and Nero have optional UDF support, the actual
file format is not compatible between the two programs.
