Having problems with your Sony PC Laptops ?

When i insert a burned cd, the cd is recognized as such, but it does not see the files on it.It considers it as an empty cd


Answers :

If you have burned CDs using Windows XP, you are already familiar with the Mastered format. The latest version of Windowsoffers a new format, called Live File System. Discs that use the LiveFile System format are often more convenient because you can copyselected files immediately and as often as you want, as if the discwere a floppy disc or USB flash drive. On the other hand, Live FileSystem discs can’t be used in all computers and devices. Use this guideto understand the difference between Live File System and Mastereddiscs:Discs formatted with the Live File System option:Work like a USB flash drive or floppy disk, meaning you can copy files to disc immediately without having to burn them. Are convenient if you want to keep a disc in the burn drive and copy files whenever the need arises.Are only compatible with Windows XP and later versions of Windows.Discs formatted with the Mastered option:Don’tcopy files immediately, meaning you need to select the entirecollection of files that you want to copy to the disc, and then burnthem all at once. Are convenient if you want to burn a large collection of files, such as a music CD.Are compatible with older computers and devices such as CD players and DVD players.
