    when i save word, act database files to my cd-rw, i cannot bring those files up in another computer. It reads fine in my computer and i can access that file without any problems.
    what am i doing wrong - the other computers operate the same programs- but they do not have a burner installed.

    thanks KB

    You are trying to read a CD-RW disk in a read-only disk. RW means re-writable, a read-only CD-ROM cannot read them. If you need to burn a disk, you need to use a CD-R and then you must finalize or close (terminology varies by burning app) the CD in order for CD-ROMs to view it....

    Hope this helps,
