CD RW / DVD Drive problems

  Howard's Way 18:19 24 Apr 05

I have a Mat*!@:a CDRW CW8121 Combi DVD CDRW drive in my laptop. Running XP SP1. It will read DVDs no problem and sometimes a CD that is is a game. It will not read Audio CDs or anything that I have made using Roxio even though other computers can read these CDs no problem.

Do you think that this a software problem or hardware.

I have uninstalled the drive from laptop and reinstalled it and have updated the drivers.

Take out the drive and make your laptop lighter. Buy a 512 Mbytes or bigger USB pen drive and keep your MP3 and AVI files on that.

Have you got the autoplay options configured for audio CDs, e.g set to take no action.

Have you tried different types of CD's some drives read some media better than others.
