DVD rw wont read data CDs?

  Ray5776 18:45 13 Mar 2006

My DVD seems to have stopped being able to read from Data cd`s as it used to. It will play CD music disks and DVD films ok but when I put in a data disk get the "Please insert disk in drive" message. The disks I am trying to read are original software or driver disks not home made stuff, they work in my old machine OK.

Any ideas please

Thanks fruitbat, tried it but no joy, LED on drive flashes constantly and egg timer shows on icon but eventually back to insert disk message again.
