Inability of DVD Recorder to Read DVD

Hi All,

My nephew has an Acer Aspire 310 running WinXp, fitted with a generic DVD RW/ROM. He tried to play a Driving Instructional DVD and it wouldn't play. I advised him to download WMP 11 to see if that would cure the problem but nothing has changed, the DVD still won't play. Any ideas?

You may need to instruct the drive to use certain software. If you right click the drive icon then pick properties/autoplay, you should see all the categories and options for each one. If that fails you could try this:

If vthat dont work download freebie VLC player
click here if that wont play it be surprised . Just click on File>open disc then the dialogue box that opens should show th drive. Just click ok ignore the boxes above that
