    I burned a CD-RW. I /thought/ I told it to delete old data, and replace it with my new data. When I attempt to read the disc on some computers, the correct files are there. On other computers, the old files are there and the new ones are nowhere to be found. The one computer it works on is a DVD and CD burner. The other computer it works on is just a DVD player. I am not 100% sure what the computers it didn't work on had (I believe they were CD burner).

    What could be causing this? Thanks.

    If you packet wrote the software, then the other PC's may need a UDF driver installed to see the new files. I believe XP has a UDF driver installed by defaalt, but win98 doesn't..

    Some burning software only works with the UDF driver that was installed along with the software..

    You can try installing this on the PC's that don't read the disk.. http://www.pcworld.com/downloads/file_download.asp?fid=6944&fileidx=1
