Plays DVD's But doesn't read regular CD's?
Just as the title says. I have a Thinkpad R51 Pentium M 1.5GHZ etc. It has a Combo CD-R/CD-RW and DVD drive. Forwhatever reason, it will not read regular CD's nor recorded CD's it says they are blank. However it will play a DVD Flawlessly..I updated the Combo drives firmware and the Bios with in the laptop itself and still nothing, whats wierd is it wont even read a regular CD to boot off of... say like the CD I burnt(using another machine) with the firmware update, wouldnt boot off it. I can pick up a refurbished drive for like 40 bucks, but Im wondering if this one could be saved? Any Idea's?
