    While using VISTAS DVD buring software i created a disc using the 1st option.
    there are 2 options. The 1st creates a DVD thats more like a flash disk.
    the second makes a normal DVD.

    the 1st option says DVD wont be readable in systems with os before XP.

    i made a disc with the 1st option and I have tried to get the disc to read
    in 3 other XP-pro PCs but wont show up.

    any ideas?

    In case you don't have your answer, I have made it readable in XP systems
    using the Live File System in Vista by right-clicking the drive and
    formatting. Presumably that will take some extra space on the disc. Hope
    that helps...

    I want to apologize; what I meant to say was right-click and choose close
    session. You also might want to confirm you are using Live File System
    version 2.01 as Vista's help file says:

    "This format is compatible with Windows XP and Windows Server 2003. It might
    not compatible with Windows 98, Windows 2000, or Apple computers."
