Hi,

Did you finalize your session on the cdr for other cdrom readers to be able to read the cd?

If you have successfully recorded a CD but have problems reading it, here are some suggestions:

The cd's are finalized, i've tried them on all of my other computers thinking the same thing as you, they are easily read.  what do you mean by the CD-ROM not being well calibrated?  is this something i can go into and change? or is it just a ****py ROM?

Thanks, Pat

Hi,

If a cdrom is not well calibrated, which can be caused by a cheap cdrom drive or age, the only thing you can do is replace it!

Also, if you used a packet writing software like Direct-CD, a drag&drop through Explorer type of software, there may be some older cdrom drives that cannot read that format.

Does her cdrom drive read original cds?
