does not recognize when a cd is put in drive RRS feed

  • General discussion


    I have windows vista home version , I can burn cd and dvds and play them, butwhen I put in a cd that I did not burn or is one I purchased a box comes up asking if I want to name the blank disc or format, it does not accept that it has data on it or pictures on it. I have changed the autoplay and it still does not work. It will play rented dvds and ones that I buy but it is the data cds it will not recognize.
