DVD not reading ??format

  Andknig 12:25 30 Mar 2004

Hi. Am the proud owner of FarCry DVD-ROM, except my Sony DDU1612 won't read it. So, I tried a movie DVD (using PowerDVD 5.0) and the 'format' wasn't recognised. This is the first time I've tried to use my DVD drive, WTF?? Have checked internal cables, checked system info, DVD properties, have the latest drivers and updates. Sounds like the disk is being accessed (lots of whirring, lights flashing(!)), screen freezes for a minute, then back to desktop. Help?!
