CD not being read

By abanerji ·
I have a 4 years' old Compaq PC with OEM CD-Rom, and have recently got a DVD/CD-RW combo drive. So far, no problem.

I have been burning Sony CD-Rs through Nero (mostly data back-ups, and some music), and can access the files either from the old CD-Rom or from the new combo drive. Even other CDs (e.g., third party music, or from books) open in either drive.

I have just bought Sprint CD-Rs, and after burning data files find the CD is opening in the combo drive, but not in the old CD-Rom. In fact, the old CD-Rom is not recognising this CD.

What can be wrong please?

You might post this in the Tech Q&A section for better info.
Other than that - double-check:
1) that you are not useing CDRW or some other format. 2) try on a friend's CDROM. May be the CD quality.
3) check whether you burned as a CD ROM and not drag-to-disk that is used as an open disk. (check how you burned it)
