The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable only on Windows XP

I have a cd I have created using Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.0.  My OS is Windows XP Pro SP1.  The cd is then duplicated using a brand new cd duplicator (I don't know the brand or model, but could get it).

The duplicate cd installs fine on my pc.  It installs fine on a Windows XP Home workstation with just a CD-ROM. OK on Windows ME, OK on Windows 98SE, Windows 98, and Windows 95. The hardware on each pc corresponds to how old the operating system is.

However, when we send the disks out, people with Windows XP Pro machines get this error:

 'D:\ is not accessible.  The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable.

The same disk is able to be installed on their Windows 98 pc.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    The quality and tolerance of CD drives and Media can vary widely, So CDs which can be read on one drive can't necessarily be read on the other. You can try using a different drive on those systems shich can't read the CD, or you could try making the copies to a different brand of rawling.
