My DVD ROM doesnt read cd audio discs or data discs. There are a list of things I have gone through and still haven't found a solution. Maybe you can help me. I have a compaq 5420 US Presario Desktop with a DVD Rom internal drive that is LTD-122 model number. The driver is updated. And it runs an AMD ATholon Processor 1700 1.47GHz, 512MB RAM, 15.3 GB HD Maxtor with CD Writer HP 9111 and 4 USB ports USB 1.0. Its Video is S3 Prosavage Driver 32mb of RAM but it is originally a S3 Savage4 AGP 3D 8MB. Audio is ADI Sound Max.

Do ANY discs work at all? If not, then just replace the drive.
