DVD player not working

  tomorrow 17:25 23 Jun 2003

I have a LC GCC-4480B COMBINATION CD-REWRITABLE + DVD-ROM DRIVE. The CD-R & CD-WR works but I can't get a DVD working. When a DVD is in the drive I click on the drive icon in My Computer and there aren't any files shown. Windows Media player, Realone player and other interfaces don't notice there is a DVD in the drive.

I have placed in new drivers from the LG website, uninstalled and reinstalled the drive but know luck - Any help Please.

I had same problem and found after much swearing etc that it needed cleaning which I did with a laser lens cleaner disk. It now works fine.

If the DVD is a commercial film, you require independent playback software to be able to watch it.

for two examples. There are others.
