This has hapened to me as well, and I believe it is a Windows XP issue.
As it stands right now, my windows explorer will not show me ANY files on ANY cd or dvd.
In Storage Management, the drive shows up, and when there is a disc in it, it corectly reports disc size. When I insert a CD, windows explorer calld the drive “CD Drive (D:)” and when I insert a dvd it calls it “DVD Drive (D:)” but when I click on the drive letter, there are never any files listed and it tells me to “please insert a disc”
I have up and downgraded firmware and even SWAPPED DRIVES. I have gone so far as to have two known working drives in at the same time, and they BOTH act the same way. I have removed and reinsttalled drives… I have even removed and reinstalled IDE controllers in the Device Manager.
As far as I can tell, I have seen this mentioned in only one other place than here on the entire internet (c;=
At any rate, I got tired of troubleshooting it… I think i’ll have to reinstall windows.
BTW in case anyone cares… my hardware config is as follows:
- ABIT IS7 system board (intel 865PE based)
- Panasonic DVR-106
- LiteOn LTD-163
