Having a problem with my ATAPI CDRW 52x32X52 drive. The CDRW has a hard time recognizing any music or mixed content disks. I'll put in a CD and the light will blink for a minute or two, then shuts off. I'll re-insert the CD several times before the drive recognizes the disk. It will not auto play any disk. I have to manually open the folder. I have gone into the drive's properties to change this to no avail.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, and I thank you in advance.
Maybe not. If you're running XP, right-click My Computer, click the Hardware Tab, click on Device Manager, Double-Click DVD/CD-Rom drives. It will show your make/model of drive. If there is an exclamation mark or questions mark next to it, there could be driver and or hardware issues.
