Problem with some CD Disks!

I have CD ROM Drive Mitsumi (32 X), but I have problem with some CD Disks because my drive CAN NOT read them (some other CD ROM Drives CAN read these disks). Can you help me how to solve this problem?

Thank you for your time!

mmilan,

I agree with Ralph. Try replacing your CD-ROM drive to a Multi-Read Cd-ROM Drive. (Teac X 32 recommended).

Are the problem CDs commercially produced or recordables? (CD-R and or CD-R/W)

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

mmilan,
Some CD-ROM readers have difficulty reading recordable CDs, and even more trouble reading re-writable CDs.
The reason is because the recording surface is much less reflective on those discs, making it more difficult to read data from them.
If the drive has trouble reading the commercially produced silver CDs, then there is a problem with the drive.
I suggest you check your warranty on the drive, and have it replaced.
If it's only having trouble with recordables, then there may not be anything you can do.
If you replace the drive, make sure the new one is rated for reading CD-R/W.
Let me know if you need more.
Regards,
Ralph

I'm sorry I got to your problem too late. Anyway, in the system device manager click on     hard disk then your system's dual pci ide controller. Change this driver to standard dual pci ide controller. This driver is from MS and is more stable. I've done this many times on other people's computers with success.
