The cds play fine in other players as well? Do they play correctly in the CDRW?

Do software cds work correctly?

If so, you might try going to the device manager, properties, and if DMA is checked, uncheck it, and if it's not checked, then check it....may or may not help.

Well, I'm leaning towards thinking that there is a problem with the cdrom itself....what you might take a look at is how tightly you have tightened the screws mounting it to the drive bay. Also, you may try hooking it up on the outside of the computer.

You didn't respond as to whether software cds work.

If it works outside the bay, then you've attached it too tightly.

If it doesn't work outside the bay, the drive is more than likely defective and needs to be replaced.

I had a home unit do the same thing and it had something to do with the laser or other part inside.
