DVD ROM won't read DVD+RW Disk

  Fraser 20:53 07 Jan 06

I have backed up my work onto a DVD+RW and am trying to copy it to another machine but the DVD Rom drive in the second machine will not read the DVD+RW disk which was created using Nero 6. Both machine use XP SP2. Am I missing a patch or somehting or is a DVD Rom drive simply not able to read an open DVD+RW disk.??

older dvd roms often can't read rw dvd 's

try copying on a dvd-r disc (most likely to read on an older dvd)if you have dual format or dvd+r if thats the only format of writer

It's very doubtful that every DVD-ROM drive will be able to read a DVD+RAM disk.
