My DVD drives will not open data discs (cd) it will read dvd's but i just tried to reintall office 2003 and i got the notice that windows could not read from the disc as as it was either corrupted or the file system is not supported by windows, I tried with another disc and it comes back with the same message. Before I reinstall windows any idea as to what the problem might be.

CD laser might be dirty or dead.

Try a CD Cleaner disc first.
