XP DVD Drive.

Just a pefunctory query,
New XP computer with "Western Digital" super ritemaster DVD drive
Used the drive to install XP OS
but the drive will not read my CDRom data discs I burnt in 2007
they read on an old clunker.

Would that be an XP software or activation issue or DVD issue, and if so 
what suitable NG please?
thanks in advance.

It could be the media just isn't compatible. That happens now and again,

Can't Send Messages Using Outlook Web Access & XP
Our users with Windows XP cannot send messages using OWA. I've read a few KB articles about some incompatabilities between XP and OWA, but none of the proposed fixes (using the "basic" rather than "premium" client, or changing the security settings in IE) seem to solve this last problem. When they click on "send", it generates an unspecified "error on page". The problem occurs using IE and Firefox, but just on XP machines. My Windows 2000 machine works fine using IE and even my Macintosh using Safari (gasp!) works. ...
