  1. Before i restored my computer, i put some files on a blank CD. I put jpeg and gif files, and photoshop and some fonts in the disk.

    After restored, had problems with screen resolution etc, fixed all that after a few hours...

    but now new problem. When i insert the disc with my files in, nothing happens, so i click on my computer and then open the cd, the computer just freezes...damn i wait...nothing...so then i go to task manager and end the task. 2minutes(literally 2minutes) later computer works normal.

    How do i fix this? Thanks to whoever helps :) It's greatly appreciated.

    Try to read the disc on another system...

    You said some of the files are in a Photoshop format. Has Photoshop been reinstalled after the computer restore?

    sounds like a driver or registry issue.

    It must read other discs ok - or you wouldn't have re-installed successfully... Is the CD Dirty / Scratched? If so, you can get it buffed at a Video Store.

    If it looks OK, try reading it on a friends PC - perhaps it was a bad burn?

    neat method to polish disc's
    banana wipe a piece on the disc use the banana peel to rub in
    rinse off
    banana oils are used to polish leather (old school )I used when I was in Navy
