Why won't cds play in the dvd-rw?

Nathaniel, DVD RW have the capability of playing any CD. If you are facing problem then either:

a) Your CD is not right or has too much scratches on it.
b) Your DVD RW Lens has gotten a bit weak. Clean your DVD RW lens and then give it a try.

D drive folder

Let me give this a shot.

1. Right click on MY COMPUTER from your desktop.
3. I assume you're using WIN2K so click the HARDWARE tab.
5. Under M700 it should be the 5th item down I believe. DVD/CD-ROM drives.
6. Expand that listing. You most likely have a yellow exclamation point there, yes?
7. Right click on Compaq DVD-ROM SD C2402 and if the option is there please click ENABLE. If your option is DISABLE please continue reading.
8. Right click on Compaq DVD-ROM SD C2402 again. This time click PROPERTIES.
9. The 3rd tab is DRIVER. Please click that.


10. Double click on MY COMPUTER on your desktop and proceed to your C:WINNTsystem32
11. In the folder C:WINNTsystem32drivers you are most likely missing redbook.sys and cdrom.sys  In the folder C:WINNTsystem32 you are missing storprop.dll (I HAVE BOTH FILES BUT MY FILE SHARING SITE IS DOWN.)

12. After the files get placed in the appropriate locations return to the DRIVER tab of the PROPERTIES window. From here or from the ADD NEW HARDWARE wizard of your laptop you'll be able to search for a suitable driver and barring some other crazy reason for this happening you'll now have those files. 

In case you can not find the driver files:

Good luck!

It sounds like you need to replace the DVD Rom itself.
They do go bad without warning.
A DVD Rom is not that expensive and should take about 5 min to replace rather easy job.
