Windows 7: Contents of CD/DVD not visible in Windows Explorer

26 Mar 2009   #1

Windows 7
Contents of CD/DVD not visible in Windows Explorer

I'm using 7057. Not sure when this problem started as I don't use CDs or DVDs that much. The drive works fine, ImgBurn works fine, all other programs seem to see the files on a disk fine, they just don't show up in Windows Explorer. I click on the drive in the "Navigation Pane" and nothing happens. I've tried two good DVD drives, uninstalled ImgBurn and PowerISO, still nothing. Sorry if this came up before, I searched first, really I did!

Windows 7 x64 / Same

Vista, 7 beta 2, 7 build 7000, build 7xxx will also. They all have done it to me. Sometimes not showing any files on a disc, sometimes telling me the disc is empty and needs to be formatted.

Rebooting solved it just about every time.
