    Hello:

    I have older CD's that I have burned and now have gone back to them to retrieve some music and photos.

    I have Windows 10 on all 3 of my computers at home.

    When I insert the CD, I get the Error: "error 1393 the disk structure is corrupted and unreadable"

    OR

    It says there is NO Disk to try again.

    HOWEVER, the disks play just fine in my DVD player. This has happened on many of my CD's burned back in the 90's.

    Again, this happens on all machines with Window 10 on them.

    Anyone else have this issue, or know of a fix?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks --- Maxdout38

    It might be the format you burned the cds is an old one no longer recognised by windows. You could search around for someone still using windows 7 or older and try copying the content to a flash drive

    Oh wow, this is interesting!
    Does that happen ONLY with burns, no "real" CDs?

    Out of curiosity, I popped a burned CD-R into my DVD drive (my PC is running 10) and it came up as an audio CD (expected result).

    If it's only happening to you on Windows 10, you might be missing a driver (check to see if other CDs work before digging around online for drivers)

    UPDATE:

    It seems to be happening with certain brand of CD's.

    However, the main question is those CD's are working on a NON Windows 10 systems.

    The name of the CD's that will not read under Windows 10 are "Kensiko Systems".

    I find this very interesting!

    I will find a friend running Windows 7 and get the info off those discs.

    In the early 2000's I had this same problem with some dollar-store bought CD-Rs that worked perfectly fine in other players. An educated guess would be the inoperable discs store data differently than the operational ones, or were burned at a rate the OS is unable to comprehend.

    I inserted them on a machine with Windows 7 and was able to transfer the data to a flash drive....
