Question about Computers & Internet
What kind of CD-ROM drive is it, and what kind of discs are you trying to load? If it's an older drive and you are trying to read CD-R or CD-RW media, it may not support reading them. I've had problems reading them on newer drives also like those TrueX things that flopped a few years back. There could be lots of other reasons. The discs may be scratched or need cleaning, and if not the lens in the CD-ROM may need cleaning. Regrads, Solver.
