CD-Rs in DVD-ROM drive won't read

I have a Samsung SD-604 DVD-ROM.  It plays the DVDs OK, but when I try to use a CD-R, for example with files on, with files on, often it won't read the CD.  Often, if it does show the title and access the files, they are extremely slow.  It sometimes locks too.  Can this drive read CD-Rs correctly?

This drive should read cd-r just fine only first generation drivers could not read cd-r but this one is broken and need to be replaced or you are not using cd-r that can hold more 650 mb

Unfortunatly I had the same symptons with an LG DVD drive. It was sorted by a replacement DVD drive. This may be the only option
