Does Vista use a file system when burning CD's that XP can't read?

Posted: 08-22-2008, 12:52 PM
If files are copied (drag'n'dropped) to a CD-R while using Vista, are
those files accessible if the CD is put into an XP machine? I've heard
of some first-hand accounts where this seems to be the case.

Does Vista use a file system on burned CD's or DVD's that XP can't read?

If so, does Micro$oft provide a driver for XP to be able to read them?

Does Vista use a file system when burning CD's that XP can't read?

Hi, 98 Guy.

Where did you hear this?

The only such incompatibility that I can think of is the long-standing
occasional problem of mis-calibrated drives, so that discs written on one
can't be read on another. But that is strictly a physical problem, not
based on operating system or file system differences.

Have a look in Help and Support and search for cd-rom. Item 7 (in my
search) is "Which CD or DVD format should I use?" and it has a table of
possible formats that can be read in other operating systems.

Hi, I'm a complete newby to posting on forums and i'm sorry if you think
i'm being rude and hijacking your thread. But for what it's worth the
problem i have is the direct opposite. i can copy fine on vista but then
the vista laptop can't read its own copy. When i put the disc in my XP
laptop it works just fine. Any ideas to that?

A friend of mine said that last weekend a friend of his with a vista
laptop burns some files onto a generic CD-R disk. They take it over to
an XP machine and it can't read the cd. They take it back to the vista
laptop and it can read the files.

My friend brings the CD to work and a few XP guys look at it but they
can't read it either in their XP machines. The properties of the disk
indicate that it's a blank CD - but it's capacity is reduced -
indicating that there is something on the disk.

I came across the following, which could be the reason why XP can't read
the CD:

Vista UDF 2.5 issue:

Possible XP driver might be here (I haven't tried this yet):

But this issue pertains to CD-R's (not DVD-r's) so I'm not sure if this
UDF thing would or might apply.

So is the default setting 2.5?

Is it just me, or is this issue (and the potential for Vista -> XP
incompatibility) common knowledge?

Is there a benefit in using 2.5 vs 2.01, or did Microsoft do this
because it's their habbit of creating compatibility or
intra-operatbility problems with older windows versions?

I think for regular CD's it's file system is CDFS. Not sure what they call
it for a DVD.

No, you have a choice to burn for playing/reading only on that computer
or for any computer.

You're a moron Frank. There is NO option to make something only play
on THAT computer. What you just said above but surely you will try to
climb up on a stack of bibles and pretend it wasn't what you meant.

Again Frank illustrate why he's a total jackass, retard and putz.

There is an option to use different file systems. One is backward
compatible with older versions of Windows, the other is not. There is
no "that" machine which in Frank's senile world implies you could burn
a CD playable only on the machine that burned it. Frank has lots of
difficulty writing English in a way you can understand what he
babbling about. That's because Frank is severely brain damaged, senile
and suffering from advancing dementia.

Just excuse Frank, the old fool never knows what he babbling about.
He's just some senile old fool.

Frank is correct!

I've had a number of burners over the years and every one of them gave the
option to burn the discs for general use on all machines or just for use on
the machine you are using to burn the disk.
