CD-Rom not recognizing data CD format

Hello,

I recently purchased an audio CD containing 74 songs while traveling in East Africa. I assumed the disc was burned in .mp3 format but my CD-Rom does not recognize the audio files on my computer. In properties it shows the CD is near full capacity but no songs are recognized and scanning the CD for threats shows there to be 74 files on the disc. So I believe all of the music is on the CD but for some reason my computer doesn't recognize the files. Is this simply a strange file format? Is there a codec or driver that can fix the problem? Thanks for the assistance.

    CD's are Universal, can play on any CD Player, from anywhere in the world.

    (Under the Red Book Standard, laid down in 1982, any CD made anywhere in the world must play in any CD player, anywhere in the world.)

    Search & download latest codec pack.
  2. It is a region thingy, your country is not in the same region as where you bought the CD. You won't be able to play the CD.

    Regions are for DVD not CD
