cdrw trouble shooting

By gregandsally ·
Does anybody know why a CDRW cant read burnt cds? Will read all manufactured cds, just not burnt ones. It is an Acer Atapi CD-CDRW 16 x 10.

The cd speed could cause this problem,check the speed of the cd and compatibility before purchase

The cdrw was bought as a part of an Acer package 16 months ago. The processor is a Pentium 4 1.5 ghz. Apparently it worked for a couple of months. It initially stopped playing the burnt cds, but now it wont even burn them. I reckon its a dud. I've tried downloading drivers, but to no avail.
