Unhappy CD from XP not readable on Vista

I burned many (over 50) CDs using roxio CD burner with XP OS. Bought new HP with Vista preinstalled. When I try to view images from any of these CDs, I get the name of the file saying the file is empty. When checking properties of the cd drive I see the data as used space on the disk. But when I open the folder I get folder is empty. Spent 4 hours yesterday and 3 hours today talking to HP help untill RON told me it's a compatibility problem and it took me 30 minutes for him to admit the problem was with Vista. He said I should burn the CDs using Vista and then I could open them. Duh , Ron, how do I load them on Vista to burn them on Vista. Namaste Ron. Does anybody have any help. I have downloaded Klitecodecs, DVD firm software fix and deleted all filters from the Reg with no luck. Thanks Doug

If you still have your XP computer as well as the new HP, I'd suggest burning CD's with Nero. You can download a free trial, and I've just moved from XP to vista, and haven't had any issues reading any of the CD's or DVD's I've burnt off.
