  1. I've got this werid problem, I've got a cdrw 52x drive and a DVD rw 4x + and 4x - on my PC, when I put an audio CD in either, both see it as a blank cd to write on but if I go to rip the track to .mp3 or .ogg using a program like cdex it rips and plays them fine as mp3. Is there any reason why it would be acting like this ? Also I can generate/create Audio Cd's that work but I cannot play them. !!

    you could try going in to my computer right clicking on the drive you want to play your music cd's in, go to properties, then the auto play tab and tell it what program you want to use for music cd's
    its just a thought , hope it works
