Well, even though i have posted b4 on this same issue.... http://techsupportforum.com/showthread.php?t=51887

It never really got resolved because i gave up... But now i really would like to watch dvds again so im just getting fustrated. Well as stated in my last thread, the dvd drive isnt working at all. It opens, it closes, the lights turn on to act as if it is reading the dvd... but, nothing happens and when i try to read the dvd in the Windows Explorer, no dvd files are found wat so ever and then i put the dvd in another computer or another dvd player and it works perfectly. This is getting quite fustrating. So, I have Windows XP Home Edition SP2.

If u r really skilled or watever and know the excact problem and can help me out, please post here as much as possible or PM me for my Instant Messege S/n's. Thx for ur help. :grin:

The first thing I do when I have trouble with dvd and cd drive is to give them a good cleaning. I have , i the past, cleaned 10 or 15 times before things get better. I have also on occasion dampened the cleaning brushes with tape cleaning fluid or alcohol.

Does this problem happen to back-up dvd's only or all dvd's?.
