dvd will not read game

Hi Folks,
Can any one please tell me why the game I have burned to a dvd will not work on my dvd. It say the disc is empty and shows up as a cd rom drive when I put a dvd in, other times it says it is a dvd ram drive. I shows up in Device manager under its proper name of NEC DVD_RW_ND4550A thanks any help much appreciated

it sounds like the you have tried to burn a copyrighted game and thus has worked in its protection

I could be wrong

You are wrong it is not a copyrighted game but one that was free to download on a games forum

Are you having trouble with any other burning tasks?
I had a similar thing- the problem turned out to be a dying cooling fan. Otherwise try a different burning program.

It is a brand new computer only had it a few weeks and since my NEC dvd turned into a ram drive have had nothing but trouble will try to burn it another way but never had this trouble on my old computer and Nero is supposed to be the best thanks anyway

Have you downloaded the game as a .iso file?

If so did you burn an image of the .iso to the DVD or simply burn the .iso?

What game is it?

Could it be a duff download.......try redownloading.
