Why can't I read my recorded CDs on another computer?

Why can't I read my recorded CDs on another computer?

There are a few different issues that can affect what we call disc interchange, or reading a burned CD on another computer system or CD device.

CD-R vs. CD-RW Media

CD-R discs are recommended for any CDs you wish to take to another computer system. CD-RW can be used, but some older CD-ROM readers will have problems accessing the information on these discs. If the CD-ROM reader has a MultiRead icon on the front plate, that drive will be able to read RW media.
