Have a Compaq Computer. My tower has two places wherein discs can be inserted for various reasons. - Can you tell me which insertion site i.e., top or bottom that will enable playing a CD - commercial...


Probably both will play a cd but sure that one will only record a DVD -/+ or a CD and the DVD recorder will play DVD's. If the CD player is a DVD player it will play DVD's and CD's but not record.

My dvd/cd-rom canot play or read


Your driver has become corrupted.
Go into device manager, and delete the drive.
Download the most recent driver from the manufacturers website to a location you can find on your PC.
Restart PC.
Let windows recognize the new hardware, and point it to the file you just downloaded when it askes for driver.

My dvd drive is not video files but it is reading data files


What OS are you using?
In windows go to the Control Panel+ Performance Maintance+System(system properties) + Hardware+ Device Manager from the list select disk drive and select the one that you are trying to access and on the general tab make sure that the drive is enabled.
NEXT In my computer right click on the drive and properties make sure auto play is selected for music. And then also if you have more than one CD/DVD drive you it can possible that the drive is set not to play video and music. The too you will find in the properties menu.


Thank You good luck
