CD/DVD Drive error message

I've notice this a few wks ago, I searched for answers but no solution yet?!

When I put a cd or dvd in my LiteOn drive nothing happens? I try to double click on the drive or right click play and I get the following error message...



Now from the tree view I can double click on the drive it opens but if I try to right click and select play I on the drive get the error message again? I can play the files fine.



I've also tried the Microsoft AutoPlay fix but that crashes?!
This is driving me crazy!!

Any help would greatly be appreciated!!

I have only had that error when I have had UltraISO install or a virtual drive installed as well. Right Click on the CD device and "open with" the appropriate program. And it should associate a program the read those particular files.

"the file type i see is cda. this is not a music track it is a file extension that holds tag information"

That's what your file looks like after a burned Audio CD. If I burned it as an mp3 they would've showed as mp3 files.

I have all my music files associated with WMP.

I also have Power ISO but all drives are disabled & unmounted.

Yes I did..."An audio CD will show .cda files, which are tracks information for the underlying mp3 files. Although the songs will be there internally, yet the files will be shown as cda."

Like I said if I open the CD/DVD I can play the files fine. The problem is double clicking or right click on the drive I get that error message.

I put the same CD in my Laptop, right away I get the AutoPlay window & I can also double click on the drive and WMP plays the cd.

ok . well that rules out the drive and file type . not really sure what could be the problem . will have a bit of a google around for you.
edit ,ok have had a look around and two things to try.
go to device manager , uninstall the cd/dvd drive then reboot. the drivers will re install.
secondly.
try the microsoft fixit tool
