    My CD-DVD rom reader /writer reads every kind of disc inserted into it
    except ones produced by Microsoft. ie. Vista Installation discs, Microsoft
    streets & Trips, etc. etc.

    I didn't know there were any 'smart' CD/DVD decks available...LOL

    If it reads other disks, I would venture to guess that the disks that it
    doesn't read are either dirty or defective.
    Clean the disks, clean the deck.
    If all else fails, new CD/DVD decks start at $29, they are even available at

    You could also double-check the discs in a mate's CD drive, which would
    further clarify whether it's the CDs or the drive.

    I'd agree that the drive appears to be giving up the ghost and it might be a
    good time to look into a new one.
