Cd-rw/dvd-rom wont read ant disc's

i have a buslink internal cd-rw/dvd-rom drive. i can burn cd’s but the drive won’t let me read them or dvd’s. model rwd4816. os windows xp any ideas? thanks

Read this sticky and see if that helps.

i tried every thing and no luck im going to try running the drive on another machine to see if it will work

Drive seems to work ok, but it doens’t see any writable media

In most cases, the cause for this problem is quite easy to be found: an ATIP hider is installed on your system. As some copyprotections check if the disc they are running from has an ATIP (part of a CDR(W) where disc information resides), programs like CloneCD come with an ATIP hider, to hide this ATIP from the system, making it possible to run backups. By disabling this ATIP hider (sometimes called “CDR media hider”), your problem will most probably be gone.

how do i go about doing this?:iagree:
