DVD RW Wont play

Hi all

My samsung R530 wont play newer DVD's. It did for a few months, recently it stopped playing them, it WILL play old dvd cd roms. I tested it with an old DVD-ROM, Call of Duty 2, which will play, then tested it with, Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare, and the disk just clicks round and nothing happens. Even normal DVD films wont play either, however older dvds will.

The make and model of the dvdrw is TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633C. I have checked the driver and it is up to date, i dont really know what to do next, can anyone help?

no i havent tried with copies, it seems to only work with fairly old DVD discs, whether they are movies or data discs or even games. this is what is strange because the new dvds are the same format as the old ones, it just sounds like its got click of death eerytime i put a newer one in. this is one of the strangest problems that i have come across.

You probably need a firmware update
