Are DVD drives as incompatible as CD drives?

Specs: Windows XP
CD drives are incompatible with each other. That is a cd burned on one drive cannot be read on many other drives.

I was wondering if DVD drives are any better?

They are compatible may be the burning process isn't succesfull or multisession. Here it's hard to find original disc (both cd & dvd's) i use alot of fake dvd's and they read perfect with alot of noise(spinning) plus i quit using cd long t ago, dvd is a good choice & they are cheap, dirt cheap.

A lot depends on how the data was written. Data written is ISO 9660 format should be readable on any other CD drive. Any deviation from ISO 9660 or the use of packet writing software will mean the disk can only be read on compatible systems.

The drive itself has little to do with it.
