Okay. I copy data onto a CD-R from my computer and it says the files have been copied.

If I go to the CD, I see the files on it.

But if I take the CD to another (older) computer it says the CD is blank.

Any ideas how to solve this? I don't know if it is anything to do with the other computer being older?

hi there:

try burning the CD at a slower speed, cause the cd-rom on your older computer may not be equiped to read CD's that are burnt at a faster speed. This also happens if your are burning music discs and try playing them in a CD player. It is always a wise choice to burn CD's at a slower speed.

Hope that helps
