Aopen DVD RW has an I/O error in XP sp2

Does anyone have a suggestion as to why my DVD will not even read a CD …It shows up as installed hardware in all venues…it just wont read a disk without popping up a dialoge box saying "Unable to read due to I/O error.

Gyreene…

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Do you have this problem with CDs only or also with DVD discs? Are the problematic CDs burned ones or the problem is present also with pressed discs?
