Windows 7: W7 not reading Dual Layer disk

W7 not reading Dual Layer disk

My machine needed a new mother board and so I upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista, same Optical and hard drives installed. I burned files in a dual layer disk in Vista as backup. Now having upgraded the PC to Windows 7, Windows manager lists all the sub directories and the files but then only opens directories about half way thru' then hangs. Any suggestions?

I can't find any firmware updtaes for my drive for Windows 7. Drive is a TSST Corp SH-S223B, I assume because the device is now obsolete!

I managed to test the disk and other DL disks and the problem was with the disk and not the drive.
