help with dvd drive

  boosh 21:12 04 Mar 2007

I have a dell inspiron 9300 laptop with a sony DW Q58A DVD R/RW drive that only plays dvd`s and appears not to recognise audio cd`s and cd roms. No message comes up on the screen and the drive just spins fast then slow when a cd rom is used in the drive. Could anyone please help ? I am a novice with pc`s.

Hi, in My Computer right-click on DVD ROM Icon and then left-click on Properties, have a look at the Auto Play tab to check the settings there.
