I have a old PC that runs a small machine. The drive program runs in DOS but the PC also has Windows 3.1 on it. Everything runs fine and there is no need to upgrade the PC to something more modern.

My only problem is that I can't seem to get the CD drive to read disks that were created on my Windows XP desktop computer. There is no USB port on this old PC and while I could add one I don't think DOS/Windows 3.1 would support it anyway.

Am I beating a dead horse here trying to get an XP written CD (Nero Espress 6)to be read by the CD drive on this old PC or is there a way to set things up so it will work.

The drive works older pre-recorded program CDs just fine.
