    My Cdrom will not always read CD's I end up using my CDRW. I put in a CD audio or other and it will not read. Any ideas?

    Are these CD's ones that you have burned yourself or are they commercial one. Some CD-ROM's (older) have a problem reading CD-R's.

    Hi mj161,
    You can try a CD-ROM cleaner. They are cheap and they work pretty good.

    Hi,

    I had a similar problem.

    Strangely, the problem cleared up when I updated my audio and video drivers - go figure.

    If everything else fails, that might be worth a try.

    Best Regards
    Kit
