    Hi

    Need some help from the experts please.

    I have a combined CD/DVD burner which will burn CD/DVD RW but when I come to check the files on the CD/DVD RW I cannot open the Disk from either the burning software or Windows Explorer. (by double clicking on E: drive with DVD RW disk in it)

    If I put an Audio file in it does open and play with no problem. But putting in CD/DVDs with jpg photos does not work or .exe files etc.

    I have tried Microsoft fixit. It says everything is OK

    Any suggestion on how to resolve?

    Thanks

    Terry

    Have you tried deleting the drive in Device Manager and restarting the PC? After restart all content should be shown.

    Hi zapjb

    Thanks for your reply. Yes I have tried uninstalling and rebooting but it did not make any difference.

    Thanks

    Did you finalize the disc? This could be the reason. Might try adding more jpg & choosing Finalize disc.
