:help
My laptop has XP Home Edition on it as well as Office XP. I had created CD's on my previous computer which had Windows 2000 and the previous version of Office on it.
When I load my old CD's in the computer and try and open my CD drive I get a blank screen. No documents show up. When I go into properties it states that the CD has 0 used bytes but is completly blue (used up. How can I make my CD's readable in laptop?

Audio CD or CD ROM

If you click start then my computer then does it show there is a CD in the drive

If you right click the drive does it give you the option to run / play

Does the Drive make a noise / light up when you insert CD
