DVD drive won't read CDs ?

Question : Please help me with my problem! Just a few days ago, I burnt an audio CD using my friend's computer. But when I inserted it in my own DVD drive, it wouldn't even read the CD. I tried it with my dad's laptop and it was fine! So I tried using other burnt CDs but the same problem occurred. When I put in original CDs like the driver CD, the DVD drive could detect it. Could it be that it can't read CDs that are not original? I've never had problems with it until now.

Answer : Your DVD drive might be a little sensitive to certain types of recordable or rewritable media. Usually, pressed CDs will never pose a problem but some drives do have a problem, especially with CDs. Try using another brand; reputable ones like Imation or Verbatim will probably be your best bet.
