I have a Sony DVD+-RW DW-Q58A running on a Dell Inspiron E1505 with Windows XP SP2 media center edition. I can read DVD (both movies and files I have written) but when I put a CD in the drive (either an audio cd or a burned cd) it will not read. The green LED comes on and I hear it trying to read it but after a minute or two it gives up. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
