Ok i really dont know which part of the forum this should go and i noticed some similar issues, but they are not exactly the same so i think they can fit here, but if the moderators move it plz leave me a PM.
Urgent Problem: CD-RW not reading CDs properly. Data CDs being read as Audio (different twist to similar issues).
[CD writer is Phillips 4012P. I do not think at all its hardware nor damaged CDs. Im inclined to software trouble.]
Windows XP with
Nero and InCD
Btw I recently unistalled Windows Media Player 9, and im back to 8. I mention this because it may be connected to formats issues.
Now i cant even re-install CD-RW drivers as the original WindowsXP CD is not being read either. More correctly its being read as an Audio CD (it also shows this in Explorer) and reads as a track .CDA file. [Btw i have not used this CD since it came with the computer 1 year ago. So its not damaged CDs plz take note]
My CD-R and CD-RW copies seem all to work ok, they are read correctly.
But so far all orginal CDs (except 1) do not read correctly at all.
I can even access the original package CDs that came with the computer.
Another issue related is that when i put another cd in, it does not read it at all, but shows as a previous cd i inserted before. Either a data cd (a copy that was read fine) or then as a .CDA file when it clearly is a data CD. Could be mistaken for rereading with the same error or a "cached" previous read error. I dont know?
Btw Audio CDs (orginals) are not being read, nor reproduced either.
I only noticed this today... was working fine before no problems. But as i have not used original CDs in a while i do not know what happened or what caused it, nor the exact moment of this problem appearing (it may have been awhile but i didnt notice until now).
Though the last time i had computer problems was with WMP 9 and i unistalled it back to version 8.
Meanwhile... im looking DESPERATELY for a solution!!!
Someone PLZ help!
If you can help i would be Much appreciated.
Thx in advance.
