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.

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

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.
