Does USB 1 have the bandwidth to burn CDs?  It's possible that you've
burnt a dud disc (because of a buffer under run), that the plextor+linux
is happy to have a crack at reading it, while Windows and the USB driver
can't handle broken discs...

Maybe running `find -type f|xargs cat > /dev/null' to read
through every single file on thie disc will throw up an error.
