OK so My opitcal drive will play dvd's but not music cd's. I have updated the drivers. Load new codec's. Still nothing. All it will read is dvd's has anyone run into this or do you have any idea of a fix for this problem.
All I can figure out is it will read dvd movies but not cd's. This have a fresh install of Xpfroma dell install disk. It was able to read the installation disk. It will play movies. But when I put a music cd in it start to run then clicks a few times then turn off. I open my computer and under the e drive which is my optical drive there is nothing> Tried to go to run and put in Regedit To look for any upper and lower filters that may be the issue but it comes up blank
I'm having the exact same problem with my Dell laptop DVD drive.... I can play DVDs but not CDs. Latest drivers installed, etc - makes no sense to me. Has anyone figured out a solution to this other then replacement? This is out of warranty even though it's pretty new - it wasn't used much for a while.
