cd not working

  Bribabby 20:27 18 Jan 05

Help, s'me agen. My dvd\cd will load and play a music cd but does not bring up the screen (ie PC Advisor free cd) so I cannot access the progs on aforesaid cd. The cd is ok 'cos it will load normally on another computer. I have substituted another known good cd\dvd player with the same results,ie no screen display. I am beginning to suspect a software glitch,incidentally I have run Spybot and AVG with no faults found.
The unit is a LITE-ON DVDRW LDW-851S.
Hope someone out there can help

Hi, can you see the cd icon in My Computer - if so, have you tried right-click and Explore?

Yes the icon is there. What next??

Right-click on the icon and you should see the option to Explore - click on that and it should show you all that is on the cd. You should be able to run stuff from there.
