DVD ROM Drive Won't Play DVD's

  BAC1-11 09:11 28 Jan 2006

My Pioneer DVD-106S running on a XP SP2 system doesn't seem to recognise DVD's any more. It plays CD fine, but put a DVD in it and it seems to have a quick look at it and spits back out.

as in dvds do you mean video dvds? or any dvds

Very good question, something I didn't think to check. Th answer is both, data & video.

If works for CD but not DVD

Sounds like DVD laser burnt out or controller us.

Time to buy a new DVD player approx £30 not worth repairing

I had one of those, same problems. Did as Fruit Bat said, invested in a new one.
