Compaq Presario 2100 laptop w/QSI CDRW/DVD SBW-241. Am I trying to play the wrong kind of DVD? The drive won't get started but plays commercial DVDs ok. Should I record a different type of disc (using a Sony DVD/VHS transfer machine)?

This is a combi drive. Combi drives were all the rage before DVD-R and DVD+R format wars took off.
A lot of combi drives can be fussy about the type of disks they talk to.
It may be worth trying different brands and even DVD-R disks.

I need help with my QSI CDRW/DVD SBW-241. Unlike everyone else I seem to read about, my CDs won't play or even show under "My Computer - "D" Drive". When I insert a DVD everything is fine. I can watch a DVD with both sound and picture and using any type of media player available. But put in a CD to listen to and all I get is the "knocking" sound that everyone else talks about when they try to use a DVD!

How strange that my drive is doing the exact opposite to everyone else. I have downloaded the latest firmware for the SBW-241 and installation ran fine. No CD located. I even uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it. Fine for DVDs but not CDs. Am I missing something? Any help would be gratefully appreciated. :)
