What CDFS file reader are you talking about? In Windows 7 as in Windows Vista, there are only two CD/DVD burning file systems - Live File Systems (LFS) and Mastered file system (MFS).

CDFS = Compact Disc File System.

FYI, you don't turn it ON or OFF. The driver is native to Windows & it allows any "standard" optical disc formatted according to the ISO 9660 file system to be read by your optical drive.

thanks for your reply.
Actually I have 3DMAX 7 and i am trying to install that programme on my Laptop. It's a CDFS file and whenever i insert that CD in my removable drive, and try to open it, it won't open. I checked on internet about the problem and found some info. According to that info, when i checked on my computer, it shows that my CDFS file reader is disabled and i could find any way to enable that.This is how i checked:
All Programme--Accessories--System Tools--System Information--Software Environment--System Drivers--CDFS

When i checked in one of the column that says "Start Mode"
it was showing disabled.

I belive that is why my laptop won't open any CDFS file.
Any suggestion

Your above observation doesn't intrinsically isolate the problem. It shows the same on my computer & I can read/write CD/DVD media with no troubles. At this point, I'm not so sure I understand what the problem really is that you are having.

Are you unable to read/write all discs or just that particular 3ds Max media?

Also are you sure 3ds Max program is compatible for use under Win7?

i just checked that 3ds Max is not compatible with Window7. so i assume that i will have to upgrade to Pro.
Anyway thanks everyone for your input.
