I have no idea whats going on here but my DVD player will recognize everything but a DVD. I have tried new DVD's and DVD's that I have played in it before. It's been a few months since I watched a DVD on it so I have no idea if its from some software that I installed or what. I have also tried a few different DVD players and none of them work. If I go to My Computer and click on the drive it tells me to insert a disk. If anybody has any clue as to whats going on here please tell me.

Thanks

The DVD Troubleshooter is a joke and only goes through the basics. I dont think there would be a problem with the laser since the drive isnt really that old and has not been used much. It does show up as a DVD player in My Computer and works just fine for everything but a DVD. I tried uninstalling the IDE channel but that didnt help.

doesnt matter how old it is, even though usually it does last a long time before dying on you, but you never know when it could, so i say the laser is dying, btw is this a dvd cd writer combo? also try to update firmware

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
