Dvd-rw will not read disks

when i insert any disks, autoplays kicks in but it is like there is nothing on the disc the only way i can read it is by re-booting my computer, if i send some data to be written to this drive it does it ok, if i boot in to safe mode the drive reads disks with no problem, i have winxp with service pack 2 on and all updates, as anybody any idea?

I had a similar problem also. But luckily my girl figured out for me that I was using the wrong Disks on my Drive. My drive requires DVD+R not DVD-R… might wanna check that and find out if that is the problem.

thanks for reply but nothing to do with disks works ok in safe mode, which i think is software related either a program or driver.
