How did you copy the files to the CD? Did you use a CDR or a CDRW disc? What software did you use, Roxio, Nero, NTI, ???
Perhaps all you need to do is close (finalize) the session. There should be an option in the software you used to do this.

Or better yet, try putting the old drive in the new computer as a slave, then see if you can access the files you want directly. May be enough life left in the drive to allow you to do that.

that can happen...the computer that burns them can read them but sometimes its the only one that can...then when that system dies..your backups are unreadable to any other system...
use nero ...roxio...or sonic to burn cd/dvd's ...

XP stages the files and gives you a popup that you can click on to actually burn the files to CD. MS purchased the software from some outfit and included it in XP, but I can't remember the name of the original.

(to their horror) that other computers don't even see the data...I'm pretty sue its packet writing but even if it isn't the results can be the same...just my 2 cents worth
a little more research says its a .ISO image that xp's cd writing uses...more here..

Try it. It writes bog standard CDs and from what I can see, you can add additional files a few times but will run out of room for the session data if done too many times. It is not packet writing software, just a very basic CD burner.
I think the problem the OP is having is that it doesn't close the session, nor do I see any way to close the session using it (though it may be that I just don't know how to close tell it to close the sesson), so I believe that is why the files on the CD are not viewable on "some" other computers.
