What you describe is pretty common, the CD drive is defective. There is no driver to install, it is built into Windows.
I have seen the same problem happen for years, sometimes data goes first, sometimes music, but in the end the drive needs replacing.
I am running a Pentium4 PC on a Giga-Byte 865G motherboard with onboard sound, a nVidia Geforce4 graphics chip(64 MB), and 256 MB DDR RAM. I run Windows XP professional.I have a BenQ CD-ROM drive 52-x Max and my problem is as follows: the CD-ROM does not recognize any CD-ROM and in fact when I right click thedrive in my Comp. the whole thing stops responding. However, I can play my audio CD's (I tested with Safri Duo and Busted) play flawlessly. What is wrong with the CD-ROM drive? Do I need to update the driver and where can I get it. Or will I have to-(shudder..)-buy a new one? I tried on Windows 98 too but I get the same problem.Please help.Thanks.
