If the Drive detects the CD and the icon appears in the My Computer window, try this to view the CD contents
* Download ISO Buster and try to open the CD by this software

This happens when the Laser Lens/Head of the drive become weak.... if the above trick not fixes the problem, try replacing the drive lens
NB: Try this link to download ISO Buster http://www.download.com/1770-20_4-0.html?query=iso+buster&tag=srch&searchtype=downloads&filterName=platform%3DWindows&filter=platform%3DWindows

Try copying the contents of your cd to a folder on your computer. Then run from there. Remember to delete the folder after that to save space. Sometimes a computer cannot read the cd properly, but usually copying to the computer solves the problem.

Can the "bad" CD-R be properly read on some other computer?
If not, then the disk itself is the problem.

Otherwise, changing from Vista to XP does _NOT_ produce the type of problems that you are reporting.

Read only cd-r not dvd


Have the same problem, it used to work and suddenly it wont do it anymore. I guess this is due to windows XP updates. Windows says that the driver is up to date and I also installed the latest firmware. I am using Nero 7 to burn. I had troubles before but somehow fixed it. Now when I insert a DVD (data) and try to open the dvd drive the whole computer hangs. The content shows for a moment before the computer freezes so it IS in the DVD.

CD ROM CR-589


Hi, A couple of possibilities: With a known good DVD with files inserted into your Compaq CR-589, double click in your My Computer, double click in your CD/DVD. 1. If it opens and displays the content, then there is nothing wrong with your DVD but the auto start feature of your OS was disabled, enable auto start; 2. If in My Computer or in Device Manager, the DVD doesn't show up, then it can be hardware problem, IDE/power cable problem, bios did not recognize DVD device, replace if and as needed; 3. If the DVD is in My Computer but will not display the files or contents, possibly defective DVD, replace. Hope this worksa out for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Good luck and kind regards.
