    :( I've recently updated to XP pro. :) from ME. I find that I can not read discs copied or recorded now. It seems like the disc is not being closed after burning it does this on all programs cd and dvd I'm running a sony dvd burner along with music match and easy cd creator 6. it will record fine but than won't recognize discs on any player cd or dvd I contacted my computer manufact. they had no clue and told me that xp pro was incompatable with the record software and that I needed to remove xp. reformat the hard drive and reinstall ME.. Sony gave me the run around.. spent $100.00 waiting on hold and getting alot of nothing from roxio can anyone fix this without having to scrub the hard drive and removing XP pro. thanks Bilbo

    I have XP Pro and Roxio (although not my favorite). When you burn a disk, teh dialog box should have a section that allows you to "finalize" the disk. Another option is to put the open disk in the drive, then click File>Finalize

    Hope this helps,

    Please post your reply in the forum thread....(above is pasted from a PM)

    Is this when you try to close an existing burned disk or with a fresh burn?

    well, if XP is incompatible with the type of software you are using, why not just get software that is compatible.. Or is it that the drive is not compatible with XP ?
