    Hi All,

    I am using Windows 7 SP1 and I have aquired a problem (don't know how long). I find that when I put in any kind of CD with files on it I cannot open and view the files. ie if I click on Open or Open in New Window via Explorer nothing happens except a click.

    The CD/DVD drive is HP (Samsung) HP CDDVDW TS-H653R in HP Pavilion s5325uk

    I can play audio files by single clicking on the CD/DVD Device E: Drive it opens in Windows Media player.

    I can apparently burn CDs or DVDs but I cannot view the contents of the CD or DVD after burning.

    I have tried everything so I need inspiration please. Any ideas
