Let me tell again so. The drive couldnot read the cd,but at my brother'S pc, read this same cd well .So i thought maybe the files are virussed or sometghing. Then i put this files to usb flash disk at my brother's pc and at my pc, i could use this files.Now understand?

ok dude, he's just trying to help you out and it can be a little hard understanding your post because of the way you word it and the obvious language difference.

so you're saying that a cd won't work in your drive, but it will work in your brother's drive. but the files are usable on your computer when you transfer them to your computer with a usb drive.

is it just with one specific cd or have you tried various cds? it sounds like your drive is no longer working.

I did not those in future language.

I tried and i t did not work in my pc,but at my brothers' it worked.Yes,they were usable.

Sometimes it happens but for example battle middle earth game cd,it doesnot show setup working.This is maybe about virusses.

But i did not try anothers. Also the cdrw works with other cds , for examğle today it readed windows xp home edition.

How can i understand if it is working or not?

^can you swap out the drive for a different one? such as your brothers drive? that way you can test it to see if it is the drive. Or something else.

Now i am trying this:

I put the lord of the rigs game dvd to my driver. It opens ıt very slowly but autorun and setup icon ıs not true icons, they are as if unknown files type icon. But dvd is working at my another pc.

Also my cd writer works when i put cds for example windowx xp homne edition. Maybe the problem is about dvds?
