CD-RW drive won't read photo CD

    Hi,

    I recently installed an AOpen CD-RW drive on a new Dell
    PC. It works fine for most operations but it refuses to
    read a certain number of the Photo CDs I have put
    together from my digital photos and also some CDs of
    photos downloaded from the Internet. When it does not
    read, the computer label is given as UDFREADER (E:) in My
    Computer. I don't know if it's significant that none of
    these CDs was made using the AOpen CD-RW drive. All of
    the non-functioning CDs can be read on my other PCs.

    Has anyone come across this problem? How can I rid my
    new PC of this gremlin?

    Regards

    Liam

    Maybe this KB article will offer some clues:
