Has anyone else had problems using the cover disc for issue 139.
When I go into my DVD drive and click on the icon, it opens up but there is no folders visible.
I have tried run from the start menu, it comes up with an I/O error message. I contacted PC Advisor for a replacement disc, However the new one does exactly the same thing.
I Noticed that up to now the DVD version discs that I have received, and used without problem,Were always a silver disc, Whereas, This issue has a red disc included, Could a change in disc quality be the problem? or something else.

My disk works ok but its not red, its silver. The printed side is red but thats normal.

Up Until Now, The DVD Version Discs I Have Been Getting Have Been Silver on Both Sides.This May Be Nothing to do with the Current Problems I am Having, but it is a Coincidence.

I have received this months pc adviser, again I am having problems using the DVD disc included.
I Read a help file that hinted, that this is a problem with XP. I have noticed that it is only DVD discs that wont autoplay. Does anyone have any fixes for this problem. My CD/DVD drive shows no problems in Device Manager.

Thanks for the link.
I downloaded the Autofix. It Checked my DVD-R drive and found no problems.It asked me to re-create the problem, which i did by inserting the PC Advisor cover disc, However it found problems but could not fix them.

I Managed to Repair the Registry entry through Norton Systemworks. Working Fine Now.
