Dell Inspirion 546 DVD Burner Won't Play CD - Desktop General Hardware Forum - Desktop - Dell Community

A specific audio CD it played perfectly fine a month or so ago.  CD plays fine in Toshiba DVD Burner, but not my Dell.  others CDs still play fine, and CD is in fine shape (since it plays elsewhere.  Could latest Microsoft update have done something? WIn 7 home 64 bit.

Hi Ather,

When you insert the disc and open Explorer, does it show a disc in the computer? Can you tell me what this CD is? We have seen some recent problems with Warner Bros. audio CDs.

No, it's not showing at all.  When I click the drive, it tells me there's nothing in it and to insert a disc.  It's a Curb Records LTD CD.

So all of your other CDs show up but this one? That's pretty strange all right. The only sure fire cure for a hit-and-miss drive like this is to replace it.

Several CD's have required 2 or 3 reloadings to play, but they all do.  It started after a Windows update, and today's another batch of updating, so hopefully it gets fixed.
