    I have a fairly new computer with fairly new cd-rom drives, however, the drives will only read my accounting cd-rom from school and will not read any music cds or gaming cd-roms. They worked before, but now they are acting up. Could there be another problem other than getting new cd-rom drives? Please help!

    Things to check.....
    Cables to the drive and motherboard are seated all the way in.
    Make sure the drives jumpers for master and slave are correct.
    Is the drive detected correctly in device manager? Is there any exclamation points?

    Try these out first before assuming you need a new drive.

    The driver device message says that everything is working properly, and the drives will still run a few of the cd-roms, but only a few, so it must be connected all correctly. If its helpful, the games and cds that will not be read by the drives, have run weeks ago in the same drives.
