my new pc w/wndows 7 can't read CD's from windows 98

My new PC with Wndos 7 can't read the files on CD-RW's made with my old PC with Wndos 98"E. I get the message "file or directory is corrupted and unreadable". Also, I can't write to those CD's in Wndos 7. I get the message that the CD is full when in fact the CD-RW has a lot of space left. Any help?

You might need a UDF reader - how where the disk originally created (Nero InCD?).

Or you could try an laternate player such as VideoLan Player.

Roxio UDF standalone reader - this might work on anything except Nero InCD disks (if I recall, Nero had some proprietary SW back then..... but that was a long time ago)
