When I put a CD-R or any disc for that matter. it didnt read it. when I went to Start>Computer and double click DVD RW Drive it showed, "please insert disc" as if there was not one in there already. It didnt matter if it is was a blank disc or one with something on it. I recently took a tip from someone and got it to read CD's however I tried putting in a game and it still didnt read it. I really need to get these to work. so I would truly appreciate the help. thank you so much.
