I picked up a CD-R of my x-rays from my doctor's office today, 5/9/07, stuck it in my "H" drive and got:

Disk is not formatted

Windows cannot read from this disk. The disc might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with windows.

I called my doctor's office told them about the problem they said come on in for another CD-R. We put the offending disk into their computer and it worked fine. They have an HP running Windows XP professional SP2 and I have a Dell running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 SP2. What's my problem please?

It might be a problem with your CD drive. Do other CDs work okay in it?

It also may be that the recording session wasn't closed - so that you can't read the disk. The fix for this is (on their machine) to open up the CD drive (with the disk in it) from My Computer - and then click on the File menu to see if it offers the option to close the session.
