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

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 have a dvd rom an it most likely wont read it becaue faster cd roms cant take all the scraches on the cd i have some cd's that my computer skips on or just cant read them it reads in more detal it may seme like it dosent have any scraches but it most likely does but if this is if the other cd rom drives that can read if are fast for ex: you put it in a drive that is 32x and it works fine and you put it in yours and it dosen't you might want to check the quality on the two but otherwise if this is not the case then i will try again

Hey people, I knew what's problem, but I don't knew how to solve it. I asked how to solve problem, not what's problem!

mmilan,

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

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.
