CD \ DVD Compatibility Chart
 Not long ago it was common practice to list minimum computer requirements as a guide to compatibility. It is now more likely that the
advanced computers will have problems, in particular 64 bit operating systems. This must be recognised when comparing a CD with
 (say) a “minimum requirement of Windows XP” with a computer running Windows 7 64 bit, which is clearly more advanced but may
not be compatible. Similarly with the operating systems of small portable computing devices.This chart of compatibility of the CDs on
various operating systems will be kept up to date as feedback is provided, so that it provides a guide to expectations if a CD does not
appear to be working correctly. Please advise if you have established compatibility or otherwise for the combinations shown as
"compatibility unknown".
