Can anybody help me plaese?

I've put the DVD in my DVD drive and gone to My computer to explore the drive. Even though the DVD is in the drive it keeps asking me to insert the disk and won't let me explore the drive to open the disk.

Is it my PC or is it the disk that's the problem?

Many thanks

Gwen

i dont understand. I cant download anything off the disk because it doesnt let me access it through the drive in "My Computer".

Is it just that one disc? If so then it is faulty.

Have you a DVD movie you could try in it?
Are you sure the drive takes DVDs? It should say on the front of it DVD multi-drive or DVD-ROM or something similar.

ive got 2 drives. One says DVD ROM and the other says CD.

Ill try another DVD in it now.

ok - the validation code finally came through and it said that the drive cant support AutoPlay. What does this mean?

Ditch999:

Now ill go get a DVD!!!

Ive put a DVD in the drive and gone to click on the drive in "My Computer" and it does the same. It won't let me explore the drive.

Does that mean that it is my PC that is the problem not the disk?
