Computer can read data CDs but not music?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,
My friend is having a strange issue where his computer can read data CDs perfectly fine, but ANY music cd, even a brand new one, cannot be read. He says it gets a little into the first song, then windows media tells him the CD cannot be read and to turn on error correction. I guided him to the proper menu to enable error correction, however, according to him the option for error correction is not available.

He did run a lense cleaning CD but that didn't help either.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

In Vista there is no properties tab after you enter the drive properties. I was able to direct him into the correct menu through windows media.

Thanks for trying to help, but I did state that I already led him to where error correction could be enabled.
