Hi, I had this problem to, but i just got my sisters fiance to look and he said that it was reading mine as a CD and so if you go to control panel on start and on the side click on classic view, then click on autoplay, if you scroll down to the bottom and click reset all defaults then take this disc out and insert it again it should work, although you may need to do it a few times..Hope this helps!!
