Default CD Rom not reading disks

sponsored links

 
Hi all, my drive will play an audio cd, I put in a disk that has photos on it and I was able to open that, but when I put in a data disk - it won't read (I tried on another computer and it was fine). The troubleshooter says the device is working properly. If I go to my computer and double click on D Drive, I get "incorrect function". Ahhhh.........I'm thinking the cd-rom is faulty? I work for a charity, so I am trying to avoid an expensive service call. Thank you so much in advance..............Robin

Could be a hardware fault.

Once you start the system keep tapping F12 which will take you into safe mode - Windows will look odd with big icons etc. Try a data CD again, does the same happen?

If its working in Safe Mode and not in normal Windows then you have something either in the Start-Up programs or installed.

One step is uninstall the CD Burning software and try the disc again, does this work?

Try looking at [URL=***********.cd-burner-help.com/software.htm]CD Burner Software Help If there is anything on there you dont understand let me know.
