I looked for a similar topic, both in this forum and on the internet in general, but to no avail.

My CD-ROM drive can no longer install programs. It reads CDs just fine, and it can burn CDs with no trouble, but for some reason anytime I want to install from a CD, there is never a "Setup" or any ".exe" file to run. Like I said, I looked all over for people with similar problems, but I couldn't find anything. It's really strange. It worked fine when I first got the computer (Dell Inspiron 1501 running Windows XP), but now there's no way to install from a CD. It used to auto-install programs when I would put in the CD, but now it pops up the little box with the option to import photos or view the files or play something on Windows Media Player, but no option to install the freaking program.

Thanks in advance.
