well first if anything else i can definetly tell you that this is not a success story, so in the future pick the fourm your posting in more carefully ...
secondly, try specifying a file system then that is what it says
for a lack of better terms .....
what kind of cd is it ?
self burned ? if so whats on it ?
just data, a movie, music, etc ...

Moved: More suitable in Newbie. Also in the future, it really helps us out when replying to threads and if they don't belong in a forum and you mention it, to also report it so us mods can move it, etc as we don't catch everything. Regards.
