CD Rom not recognizing Audio CD

CD Rom not recognizing Audio CD

Post by Brya » Wed, 27 Aug 2003 18:52:51


Running windows XP Pro. The system stopped recognizing
music CD's. It will read and open any data files, but
when you put a music CD in, it spins, then the green
light turns off, and when you click on the drive icon, it
comes up "No disc Loaded" or something to that effect.
All of my Realplayer One settings are correct, and no new
software has been added. Any help is appreciated!


1. CD ROM not recognising certain audio cd's

2. CD-ROM doesn't recognise a CD-R on a removable CD-RWer

I'm running Windows 2000 on a server in the workplace. I
just used Nero to burn a data disc (CD-R) with a USB
connected CD-RW (portable drive). The programme completed
as per norm. I've recorded a few discs like this so that I
can take large data files home with me.

When I removed my newly burnt disc from the CD-RW, and
popped it into the CD-ROM, the CD-ROM fails to recognize
the disc... just days 'please insert disc...'.

I'm sure I had a problem like this a few months back (on
another unrelated computer)... something about not
recognising discs over a certain size, maybe????? The
discs have a maximum size of 700mb... I probably filled
about 640mb on this burn.

Also, I have just recently allowed the computer to run an
automatic update today... I'm wondering if that had
anything to do with it?

I know it's a little vague, but any help would be greatly
