Hi billybriton...

Try the Adaptec UDF Reader Driver. It may be that the new machine simply can't read the UDF formatting.

You need to "close" or "finalise" any DVD-UDF discs that were made on your old PC before the new PC can read them. In future don't use the DVD-UDF option. UDF is only required if any of the individual files you need to burn are larger than 2Gb. If that's not the case, use the normal DVD-ROM ISO option for backing up music and photo files. Then you won't run into that problem when you want to read the discs on a different PC.
