child???,,,,,,,,,, how about noob
to cut to the chase the cds the machine they were recorded on is recording for that "region"
ok you never herd of that ,np, most cd rom players are set to regions where they can play and record. NOw for Croatia im not sure of the setting, but like here in Australia its number 4,in the USA i think its number 1
* i just checked on my machine what region Crotia is and its number 2, so if you set your players region to number 2 they should play or you should be able to read
ok gl alan
CD-R's have no region restrictions in them whatsoever, commercial DVDs do, self-burnt ones don't.
Any CD-R burnt in any machine should be readable in any other machine.
It's possible that the burn wasn't successful but for whatever reason was flagged as having been done properly. Check the data side of the CD for signs of the burn marks around the CD, some burners are more obvious at this than others.
As you've tried the disks in two machines, the best solution is to contact your friend in Croatia and ask for new copies. If the packages have been X-Rayed through Customs, it is possible that they were wiped that way, though very unlikely.
