You know how alot of the old cd roms can't read a cd-rw cd.. well i heard of a program that runs and makes the cd rom read it. Does anybody know what I am talking about and where can I get this?

Thanks

I think the old cd-roms can't read the cd-rw's because the laser isn't focused the same as in newer drives and can't pick up on the info on the disc. Don't think there is any software that can make this work.

Tell them to get a new one, they're pretty cheap.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
