Can't view data disc content - tries to burn a new disc

    I've got a Sony Vaio N series notebook, and I'm finding that I'm unable to
    view content on data discs. This is a major problem when I need to install
    software as I can't do so without Window asking me if I want to burn a new
    disc. I've tried right-clicking and then clicking "explore," but no dice. It
    just keeps asking to burn. The closest I can get is searching for specific
    words like "setup" or "install."

    Any idea why this is happening and how I can change it?

    You must be having a hardware problem in your CD driver/burner.
    Try cleaning your laser lens with a cotton swab embedded in alcohol or use a
    "cleaner CD"
    Maybe the laser is dirty.
    Do it at your own risk!!!
