    i have dowloaded the photo from digital camera and burn to a CD. I realised
    it is in "UDF" File system. The CD can be access from Windows XP PC but not
    accessable on Windows Vista PC, it shows blank content.

    Anybody for the Vista to read "UDF" file system?

    You need to "finalize" the CD on the XP system. Generally, UDF formatted CDs
    can only be read on the machine that created them...

    Thank you for the help.

    Just wondering what is the reason this CD can only read via Windows XP and
    not Windows Vista nor Windows 7?

    Windows is a very poor OS, it can only read 4 types of filesystems natively:
    FAT, NTFS, ISO9660 (witch sometimes wrongly appear as CDFS) and SMBS or CIFS
    (the filesystem of windows network shares)... for any other filesystem you
    must install controllers.

    Your WinXP machine have UDF controller installed, the others don't.

    Because as I stated - UDF format is normally only able to be read on the
    machine the disk was created on....

    Yes I know that, but the OP was asking WHY he couldn't read this UDF disk on
    other machines. He didn't ask HOW to read it on other machines.
