Hopefully someone can help me with my CD drive. It's not reading some of the CDs I put into it. My CD writer / DVD ROM combo drive is reading and running CD-RW disks but not reading normal CD-R disks. It also varies with programs & games. My drive will read and start up my old NHL 2002, but it won't read my new game ( FATE ) which i bought last week or my fish & sea turtle screensaver disk. ALL of the disks work in my other computers just fine. It sounds like it tries to read it by making a couple of small sounds then stops.
On a very rare occasion the drive will read the CD, but it not very often.
This problem happened to an older computer I had, I did a system recovery and the problem on that computer has apparently cured itself. I'd rather not go through another system recovery if I don't need to.
I have already checked other threads and tried various methods such as uninstalling the driver and rebooting into safe mode but nothing is working.
