I have burnt a set of data DVDs on my Windows PC. These read fine on the PC, but for some reason OS X misbehaves. I have Hardware Growler installed, so when I insert the disc I get a notification that the drive has been mounted (with a label I set during burning).
The problem the disc doesn't appear on my desktop along other drives and in Finder it is greyed out and not accessible.
Interestingly enough if I use ForkLift.app it reads fine - files are being opened in their respective apps without any problem. Can access it from Terminal, too.
There is an ampersand character in the disc's label - could this be a problem?
