Default i can't explore any CD on my new dell desktop

Hello. So the problem goes like this. I bought a brand new desktop from dell to hold me over until i build my own. So i get it and as i try to load the info stored on the CDs i made i find out the computer can't or won't let me explore any CDs. Any suggestions?

-Adam

Additional information includes: Cds do auto run and can be installed(games and such) but neither those files nor the files on my other disks can be viewed with explorer.

Can you go to the command prompt, change to the CD drive, run dir, and have the contents show up?

If so, then there may be a problem with explorer...

Is the drive on your Dell a CD burner? Maybe its having a problem reading your burned CDs. Try to read them on a different computer.
