|There should be no problem playing or opening CD's burnt on XP. I have worked between the two OS's many times without making any special arrangements or formatting.|
Tell us more. What are the file types you are copying and are you using CD-R or CD-RW? You need to burn to CD-R on XP and you don't format the CD's first. If the files are already on CD-RW then burn them onto CD-R instead. Preferably Finalize the CD-R's produced to ensure they are readable on any system, including W98.
We need more information. If they are "audio CD's", for example, then the files have to be produced (ripped) from them before transfer, or you use a CD copying program to produce them again on W98. The whole point about CDFS is that it is universal - nothing new (see third link below).
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
