Sony CDRW 52x24/52 only reads data CDs if a CD-of any type-is left in drive from last time.

CDRW will not read data CD's consistently; however, I FINALLY found that if a CD - of any type -- is left in the CDRW drive, then the next time I boot up, the CDRW will read data disks just fine. Music CD's read regardless of whether a CD is left in drive or not.
This is a new system (came loaded w/ WinXP Home) and CDRW is new (I added it myself later; however). This is the only CD drive in the system (no CDRom in addition to; no DVD either).
AND !!!! I've had this exact same thing happen with a previous PC / CDRW that I gave up on and returned for money back !!!!!
What is up with this??
