Windows 7 won’t read contents of external DVD drive

I have installed a Samsung SH-D162 external DVD drive on my HP Touchsmart IQ524, Windows 7, via USB and here is the issue:

It shows in Device Manager, in my computer as drive G under Devices with Removable Storage. I am unable to read anything on a disc. If I right click on the G drive it will run for hours. I have hooked it up to my neighbor’s computer, XP, USB and it works fine. I have removed the upper and lower filters in regedit and re-installed the driver. This has sucked enough out of my life. Can anyone provide an answer?
