Makes burning easier for idiots.
Basically allows you to use a CD/DVD as a floppy disk where all you have to do it to copy and paste.
I tried the roxio UDF reader thingy but still not able to open.. Im reduced to having to borrow my friend's vista comp to open that disk. Its annoying. Any other suggestions? I know its not cz my comp os damaged or anything cz I tried to open the disk on three other XP computer but still cant. And the moment I pop it into a vista...it opens. Help!!
Burn it again and make sure the disc is closed (is that the right term?). Failing that, do you have a USB memory stick?
This is going to sound stupid, but I have noticed that Vista's built-in burning software is....retarded.

Oh god, it's not worth all this trouble man. Seriously, don't use multi-write UDF or drag and drop crap. If you need 'Floppy disk' type functionality, then go pick up a USB flash drive with a few gigs on it. Watch the ads and you can pick one up for 20~30 bucks no problem.
I don't mean to be a dick, but trust me here... it is not worth your time to try and get UDF to work. Even if you do, the reliability isn't there at an acceptable level. It's like a webhost that says they have 99% uptime... that's still 3 days your site will be down on average per year. Just use some real burning software and burn it once correctly (which will use UDF 1.02 to 1.5 with a possible ISO bridge, which are the compatible versions that almost all DVD drives will read no problem) if you are dead set on using a DVD. There's a couple of free programs that would work fine.

If all you need to do is data, install ImgBurn on your friend's computer. It's the best burning engine around by several studies I've seen.

Haha...Thanks for the help u guys eventhough I still cant open the damn DVD. Ur right Vol...so not worth the trouble(so I apologise for wasting everyones time...hehe. Sorry). What I'm gonna do now is open the DVD on my friends computer, save its contents to my external hard disk (should have done this earlier...d'oh!), transfer it into my comp and never ever again use the drag and drop burner....ever!! So thanx again everyone!
Nothing to be sorry about. We've all been there.
