    Hello all,

    I got a flac disc from a friend but when I put it in my powerbook slot the disc spins up but no icon appears on the desktop.
    I have downloaded the free flac software.
    The disc came from a PC user. I thought flac files were crossplatform, or at least I would see an icon.
    Another PC user in my building confirmed the disc is good, shows up on his machine and he can view the files.
    Any help, much appreciated.

    Could it be a funky UDF packet writing problem.

    Drag & Drop CD writing software is notorious for this kind of thing, and you might have to have the right burning software installed on your PC to see it until you close the session and make it ISO compatible.
