Windows 98se
I downloaded info on a disc from my old system windows 98se. When I try to
retrieve the info on my new system and computer with Vista it will not open
the disc. It treats it as if it were a blank cd. Howdo I resolve this?

Possibly a function of your burning software.

If you were using packet writing I suggest not doing so...
try a standard "closed session" burn

Re: Windows 98se
As Philo stated in different words, if you dragged and dropped the files
onto an icon and they copied to the CD, that same program would be required
to be running in Vista to be able to read the disk. To be able to use the
CD on any system you need to use a program that creates a standard data disk
(Roxio Easy...creator or Nero or one of the free ones) and you need to
finalize the disk.

I have run into this problem and have used a program called Isobuster (Free
version) to extract the files.
