Hi this is a Dvd R problem with the drive.
It's an older drive, but it is now unable to read any cd's that I put in it.
It hangs, or stops all action until I eject it from the drive. The same CD will work in the Cd burner drive though - it's not just one cd that will not work it is any cd I put in that drive.
I don't know if this is an "auto play" problem or the drive itself.
Any help would be appreciated.
I am adding a picture of the error message.

Thanks in advance

Hi Rollin' Rog, I had a neighbor over today, that took out my DVD rom drive and we put in an old burner that I had and it seemed to work fine. Then in time I figured it was not a windows problem it was picking up the drivers etc. and after putting the dvd drive back in it would recognize and read certain cd's while other cd's it would not read? It is working again even though it is fickle and probably need to replace it soon.
Thanks again.
