Wav files are the most compatible format that basically every computer can read, so no driver is needed.
The problem, as you described it, is that computer is not able to recognize the disc at all, and that it appear as empty. This is typical of a bad burned disc.
If the problem was related to an unrecognized format, then the disc will not appear empty
If you want to try a software that can basically read every format, give a try to Foobar2000 or Winamp or VLC player, but if the operative system is not able at all to read the disc, these software will not solve
