Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

Read a copied CD

\015 If I burn a CD from another computer my M55 Toshiba will not read the CD. I can read it form any other cd drive. It will read orginal CD however\015

Answers :

Use Sony or Memorex CDs (without the fancy designs on them) and (not the ones that are colored on the bottom....the top doesn't matter.
\015\012
\015\012Also It's likely your drive cannot read CD+R/-R/ etc....
\015\012
\015\012If your drive has just "CD ROM" and/or DVD ROM, or just CD and DVD written on it, that's your problem.
If you burned a Data CD and didn't finalize it, it likely will not be viewable in another PC. Put the disk back into the PC that created it and start the software you used to burn it and attempt to finalize the burn. This should make it compatible with most computers.
