Default my computer wont read or write some cds

ok ive had this problem with writing cds for a while but it didnt bother me because i dont use cds that much but my friend burnt me a cd the other day and when i went to use it in my laptop it was reading as blank.... now we checked it in other devices like dvd players, cd players and even other pcs... anyone know why my laptop wont read the burnt disk or why i cant burn them myself

Some CD Drives (mainly older ones) wont read or write CD-R or CD+R's.

It could be a corrupt driver. You could try reinstalling/updating the laptop drivers. Although i would of thought the standard windows drivers would be enough on their own.
