Do you mean that you can't watch DVD movies? If so, it's because you need a DVD decoder Windows doesn't come with one as standard. Install VLC Player and it should then play your movies. click here

If you are trying to play them in Windows Media Player you will probably need to download and install the K-Lite Codec Pack. ttp://click here Thi will enable WMP to interpret the dvd files.

Ah, I understand, denis93. What happens when you put a DVD in the drive, does the drive spin up? Does a data DVD work in the drive? Did the drive ever play DVDs?

yes it spins,but it wont reconize the dvds,even shop bought ones
