Hi there, having problems with the DVD drives not working to play dvds on my computer apparently it is something to do with the settings for the players or the drives that stop them from playing dvds. CDs can still be played/burnt but when i try to play a dvd in any dvd player (even newly installed ones) the player will freeze or come up with an unspecified error message saying the program needs to be shut down. any suggestions?
P.S. the drives is an NEC ND-3540A there is definately no problem with the drive itself, it works on another pc in the house.
May have too many players loaded, suggest you keep Nero and WMP10 delete rest. If functionality returns add others one at a time as listed, you may find where the conflict arises this way. If indeed that is the problem, do not know what else to suggest. The Jumpers referred to by Woodchip are on the back of the drives and can be selected as master or slave and cable select. If you have 2 drives on an IDE cable you must have one as master and one as slave, never used cable select. Usually master is at end of cable and slave in the middle. Probably best to check settings before doing anything else.
