Hi,

I just wondered why that when i save something to disc on my dvd/cd/rw drive and then later go to install it again or play it it will not install /play on my dvd/cd/rom drive but only on my rw drive.

Have you tried to update the drivers for the drive, this may cure it...

Its because the disk has not been finalised so will only be read in the rw drive.

does that mean that they won't work on a different Pc unless they are finilised.

They might work on a different pc as long as the same writing software is installed and via a writer.

Try using normal cd/dvd disks instead of rw disks.

If i was backing up say my photos it would not be best to do them on a rw disc if I wanted to install them on another Pc of laptop ?.
