I recently installed a Mitsumi 24x cd player and it reads all my cd's as audio type cd's rendering them useless unless they are actually audio cd's....I use a windows 95 system and this is driving me nuts.....

Help?

Are the CDs you refer to silver, or are they recordables?

When you installed the new CDROM drive, did it replace one?
Please post your autoexec.bat & config.sys files here.

bbotz,
If the proposed answer does not solve your problem, please re-open the question so that other experts may provide a solution for you.
Boot computer to Safe Mode and see how the CDROM is listed in Device Manager.
Is there more than one CDROM drive listed?
If so, remove ALL, then shutdown and reboot normally.
Windows should then re-detect and install the drive correctly.
Let me know how it goes.
