    I have a Dell P4 computer with XP on it and for some time I have had problems reading any CD I stick into my CD ROM drive. New Programs book up great, but when I try to have it read picture CDs I use for backing up digital pictures, it won't work. Any solutions for me?

    Thanks,

    So what does it read and not read??

    I won't read CD-Rs that I stick in there. I have these pictures backup up on 5-6 CD-Rs, and when I put them in, nothing happens. I just installed several programs on my computer and it worked fine, so I think it has to do with the CD-Rs. I just installed a new DVD R drive, and it won't work either. Every once in a while it performs correctly and reads it.
