Best to download to your hard drive first, and then copy the files over to the CD. Have you tried it this way?

Check to see if the CD is functional. Open a Windows Explorer window, or My Computer window, whichever you prefer. Select the CD drive letter, right click and select Explore. If the PC can not read the CD, it is a bad disk. This happens often, and it has been my experience that there could be several bunched together in a spindle that are bad.

If you need further assistance, please post back. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

My computer wont read my cd


Hi,

I suspect that you are using a CD writer and you have possibly inserted a blank DVD into your CD writer. Make sure you have a blank CD inserted instead of a blank DVD.

Let me know if this is your problem.
Best wishes,

The windows might be corrupted. You could try editing the windows registry. here are the steps:

In order to delete upper and lower filters you're going to have to edit the registry. The usual cautions apply. If the registry is not edited properly your whole system can crash.

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

* HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
* SYSTEM
* CurrentControlSet
* Control
* Class
* {4D36E965-E325-11CE-
BFC1-08002BE10318}

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

* UpperFilters
* LowerFilters
* UpperFilters.bak
* LowerFilters.bak

5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

last option, you could try installing imgburn. here's the download link: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

If nothing happens, your dvd drive is bad.

Good Luck,

Ryan

I have just brought a new pack of blank CD's, i am


Its a common problem with CDs. Check that your CD drive can PLAY CDs. If so either the CD drives optical head is dirty or your CD pack are low quality. CDs damage real easy. Try putting another CD, another brand or you must use CD doctor-something like that. Did that help

Problem with Inspiron 530S Desktop Reading CD's


If your computers are relatively old then they may not be able to burn CD's or read CD's that were burned. A new CD/DVD burner is relatively inexpensive and easy to install.
