When you put this CD into your computer at home, and click-on
"My Computer", and then right-click on "D", "explore", what is
showing?

Alternately, go to a dos-prompt, log-on to your CD-rom drive
(type D: then hit "enter")then type  dir /p at the D-prompt,
and you should see the entire listings of all directories
residing on that CD

The reason is probably that your home CD-player is fully compatible with the CD itself.
I presume that you have created this CD yourself.
If you have put more then one session on the CD, the different sessions won't always show. Only a more rescent CD-player will show all the sessions.
If this is the case, there is NO sollution except for installing a newer CD-player.

I have to agree with dr00py, you do not have a multi-play cdrom drive and can not read a re-writeable cdrom drive, therefore you can only use this cdrom with a newer player. Another blunder of the computer industry and no standards.  There is a standard in the works, but may be months or even yrs for them to come to an agreement on it.  Your best and only hope is a newer cdrom drive.
