cd filesystem

I have just started to use my new computer which runs win xp.when I try to use the cd reader to use files that I saved on my old machine (win 98) it comes up with unable to read as these files where made with "osta udf filesystem" what would the trouble be? I thought these cd's could be read on any drive. I have finished the cd but that don't seem to make any diference.

Universal Disk Format (UDF) filesystem . UDF is used by most CD-R/RW packet-writing programs (like Adaptec/Roxio DirectCD)

so maybe you need to install the software that you used to create the cd

roxio or nero should work,

No, CDs written with UDF format can only be read on a system that has a UDF reader installed. The best way to make sure you get the support for the right version, is to install the software that you used to write them with - or at least the UDF reader module.

This looks interesting, and is not expensive -
