I can't access any of the cds, in fact ,according to my computer there are no cds, so how can I copy them? I don't know any other way. The cds all work fine in my older computer. I don't think I upgraded anything of importance, but this happened a while ago, we had no clue while some cds were working and some not, only recently after much trial and error we realized it was only the verbatim ones that wouldn't work, so to do a system restore I would have to go back to a very old version. I tried reinstalling all related software (Nero, and stuff like that), several times, thinking it may have something to do with that, but nothing. I don't think it's the drive that doesn't work, and right now I would love to just format my pc but it's a shared computer and I'm not allowed to do anything drastic. Do you have any other thoughts on what I should do? Any are appreciated.
