Try cleaning the laser in the drive with a can of compressed air, or lightly with a que tip.

Try Changing the drive letter in Control Panel>Administrative tools> Computer management>Drive management

Located the drive change the drive letter to D: or E: if possible.


Your profile states you are running XP which you are in a Vista/7 forum. Which OS do you have?

My memory stick drive is D & my SD slot is E.
Shall I change it to the next letter G.
But if I do that it come up with a disk management message - some program's that rely on drive letters might not run correctly??
(sorry I'm not that good on computers lol )

That's OK, when that message comes up, just press OK. Put a DVD in and go to Computer and double click the now G: drive and see if it shows you any files.

It might work.... Can you post the make and model of your machine please. I forgot to ask before. Mainly the Brand and model of your DVD-rom drive. You can find this out in device manager.

Thanks.

Can you read the files on the DVD? in a movie DVD, the files on the root of the DVD disc will be 2 files, VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS. If these files are not on the root of the DVD then it is not a movie DVD. If they are there and your player doesn't recognize it, then try a different player like VLC which will play just about anything.
