      Hi, G. Raghuram, I've been following this thread, and have a simple
      clarification question. You use the word "some", which means to me
      "not all". Is this correct? I ask because over the years a recurring
      problem I've seen on a few computers seems similar. That is that a CD
      I can read on my own and some other's computers cannot be read on the
      computer that wrote the disk, and sometimes disks written on other
      computers also can't be read. The problem I finally discovered was
      that the CD write sessions were never closed. I would using my laptop
      write a one word file to the CD, and , voila, suddenly the disk and
      the seemingly dead disk drive came back alive with all the previously
      hidden data. So, I figure that their write sessions defaulted to
      multiple session writes. I'm not talking about re writable CDs, just
      multiple sessions strung together. This is what brings my original
      query about the word "some". --Douglas
