The yellow splat means you have a conflict on the system or the device driver was not installed properly.
Go to control panel-> systems-> device manager->click on the cd-rw drive and then click properties.Then click on driver and click on update driver.
If you have the cd-rom came with your cd-rw use that and use search for a driver in a specific location and load driver for your drive.
If you do not have cd-rom then go to the manufacturer website, download latest driver and load them. Things should work just fine.
Hope this helps.
