Files on CD

Hi there,

Files on a cd are appearing with the internet explorer icon. this only affects files/folders on a CD. it isnt a case of right clicking and select open with, then set the preference. The files on there are listed in the details as the correct file. They are just not showing the correct icon. Any ideas?

Is this happening on CDs that you create yourself or on any CD?

What about bought CDs?

Cant say that I have put a cd in that has been purchased, other than a music cd that goes straight to windows media player....

Whats the thought process behind it?

Just having a few unconnected thoughts, trying to get a grasp on it, ellie82. Try the "Rebuild Icons" option in Tweakui, it's under the "Repair" option at the bottom. click here (eighth donload down on the right).

Its a works PC so dont want to download anything like that. I feel it must be something simple that I dont know about.....
