Can anybody help please my DVD drive won't play some DVD movies. It is mainly newer movies i have the problems with, When i insert the disc and close the drawer it spins up okay and the light flashes then it just dies if i click on the "my computer icon" and go to the drive it just says DVD-ram drive if i left click and go to properties it says the disc is empty i have tried uninstalling the drivers and reinstalling them and i don't know where to go from here as the discs play okay in my external DVD drive conected via usb 2 The discs i am using are original region 2 discs and the DVD drive is set to region 2. DVD drive model HL-DT-ST DVDRRW GSA-4164B
Thanks for the quick reply. I have Full Nero suite including Show time, Windows media player 11 and i don't have any problems playing most DVDs it only seems to be the newer ones the drive doesn't even attempt to play them and it says the disc 0 bytes on it and 0 bytes remaining so i don't think this will be a software problem.
