i have been trying to read DVD-r of Moser baer brand
Moser Crap, oops Baer are considered 3rd Class media. (Media ID: MBI...)
That might be your problem right there !
The explorer will change the disc icon to something named "cd-drive", which is just a weird "feature".
Well, that's Microsoft for ya, mine does that too sometimes, but always burns a good DVD when he sees one :bigsmile:
My 2 cents...
