SYMPTOMS

Xbox 360 or Windows 2000 Server-based computers may not read CD-R discs that are burned in Windows Vista.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the version of the Universal Disk Format (UDF) that Windows Vista uses to format CD-R discs is incompatible with Xbox 360 and with Windows 2000 Server-based computers.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, burn a new CD-R disc. Use the Mastered option when you burn the CD-R disc. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Insert a blank CD-R into an RW drive in Windows Vista.
  2. In the AutoPlay dialog box, click Burn files to disc.
  3. Click Show formatting options, click to select Mastered, and then click Next.
  4. Drag the files to the Explorer window, and then click Burn to disc.
  5. In the Burn To Disc wizard, type the name of the disc in the Disc title box, and then click Next.
  6. Click Finish.
