Hello!

On my 7 year old Sony Vaio PCG-FX103 server laptop, it has a Toshiba DVD-ROM (SD-C2402) and it won't recognize disks I have burnt on my other computer (using ISO Recorder), it only recognizes standard disks. This is really annoying because I have Windows 2000 Server and Windows FLP on separate disks and I want to install Windows 2000 Server and can't because it says that there is no disk in the drive. At first I thought it was a BIOS problem because when I put the XP disk in, it says "Press any key to boot from this CD..." automatically, without having to go into any boot menu.

Any help will be appreciated...

You must finalize the disk so no more data can be written, and it must be a standard CD-R not a CD-RW.

Disk works on other machines and is only a CD-R, not a CD-RW.

I bet those other machines are newer though are they not? Older drives cannot read unclosed disks.

I think you meant to be old :P.

But never the less, you are correct.
