I have an older CD-ROM drive in one computer that just won't read my CD-Rs.
However, two computers with newer CD-ROM drives read that CD-Rs with no
problem.  They are multisession CD-R, recorded for the PC world.  I also
made an audio CD on the machine, and some audio CD players can't play it at
all.  I think it may be just a CD-R phenomenon.
