I have just brought a Dell X300 laptop and I was told there was no operating system and I have just installed Win home edition and that went on fine, however I cant seem to read any other disc unless it is an installation disc ie Tiscali, windows XP etc,

Please Help me??

Just tried music cd`s, dvd`s and written data disc etc but it cant detect a disc but if I put an installation disc in it loads straight up

Sorry that was for another thread. I have no idea what is going on hear.

PS if you mean discs that you created, Was they created on that computer? if not, the Format of the drive may differ

You could try removing the CD drive from Device Manager then Restart the computer. This will reload the CD in Device Manager. It may sort it but, me thinks that the CD drive format is different to the Discs you are trying to run

Do you have another computer with a CD writer?

If you do! try burning one of the CD then try the new CD
