cannot read CD


Recommended Posts

hello

a friend wrote a CD but in my laptop the CD appears empty

he insists he wrote in the CD some pdf files and we put the CD to his PC and the files were in the CD, indeed

but putting in my laptop makes the CD appear empty

what can I do?

putting it in his pc shows the files

I will tell him to finalize the CD, although I wouldn't like to finalize it, isn't there a way to read a non-finalized CD?

the CD appears with no files and the properties are these:

can you check from the properties that it is not finalized?

by the way I noticed that the disc is DVD-RW !! but as above it appears as CD

... You can't read a DVD-RW in a CD drive. If that is the case (always be careful when stating the obvious :rolleyes: ).

this is not the problem, since the drive reads everything, CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-R, DVD-RW, etc

I had this problem with some previous drives. I just had to re-inset the disc until I get the files to show. There is two things here: You may try updating firmware of your drive, or your drive is failing (which was my case).

Cheers ;)
