"Audio CD: 0 bytes used, free space: 0 bytes" problem

  1. Hi guys, i'm new here, and I need some help badly. Up untill now, my dvd-ram drive has been working perfectly, reading any type of disc with no fuss. All of a sudden, it now decides that it does not want to play or read audio cds properly. in my computer, it says the cd is no 0 bytes big, and there is 0 bytes free. When i look on the cd, all the files are worth 44 bytes, and they display as 1kb respectively.

    I have had this problem once before, but managed to sort it out, but now i can not remember the method to sort it out.

    please help!

    Welcome to TechSpot

    Did you install something CD/DVD related? Or did you try to play a copy-protected CD?
    That part looks normal to me (at least in Windows).

    does a program that makes virtual drives count as installing something?

    I thoguht this may of caused the problem

    Thanks for attempting to help, but i have solved the issue now. It turned out that Alcohol 120% was the problem, as I thoguht it was. I just removed it, and now everything is tickety-boo.
