Can an XP data cd be read in ME?

I don't think I understand quite what you are saying. A game or program that is made to run on XP will not install or run correctly on ME. You can use old programs on new operating systems, but you can't do it the other way around.

Yes, any CD-ROM burned from a computer running Windows XP can be read on a computer running Windows ME, as long as the data contained on the CD is compatible with ME. Pictures and video should be fine, but any software must be compatible with ME.

Yes. A windows XP Data CD can be read in Windows ME. However it may not be able to autoload on windows ME. To open the data CD you may need to first load the CD in your CD drive, then double click the CD rom icon.

A CD uses a universal format. It should be able to be read by any version of Operating System (OS). So, yes, a CD for Windows XP should be able to be read by Windows ME.

Yes, all data cd's are burned the same way, regardless of the operating system. If the operating system has a cdrom drive that reads cdr's or cdrw's it should be able to read the data cd. Make sure that the disk is "closed" rather then open. Some older drives will NOT read the disk if it's unclosed.

Yes, Windows ME should have no problem reading a data CD made in any other operating system. XP, and Windows in general, doesn't record anything other than your data.
