You cannot browse any data that is written to a DVD-R disc in Windows Vista or in Windows Server 2008 after you eject and then reinsert the disc

Applies to: Windows Vista BusinessWindows Vista Business 64-bit EditionWindows Vista Enterprise More

Symptoms


Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
  • You use the media writing feature of Windows to burn a DVD-R disc by using the Live File System format.
  • You write some data to the formatted disc, and then you eject the disc after you finish the write operation.
  • You insert and eject the disc few more times. And you read and write some data in this disc every time.
In this scenario, the disk is displayed as empty. You cannot browse any data that is written to the disc.

Cause


The issue occurs because the universal drive format (UDF) file system driver (udfs.sys) does not prepare an appropriate session if the driver receives an interleaved read request during session preparation.
