Samsung R60+ Laptop DVD problems....

  Residual 08:41 20 Feb 2008

Dear all I recently purchased a R60+ laptop from I was overjoyed with the product, however when I tried playing DVD movies on the machine I ran into a problems.

The problem I'm experiencing is that the drive is able to read cds and dvds with programs on them. However when I try to play DVD movies the drive locks up just keeps on spinning. I cant eject the disc nor get into My Computer to see the DVD drive. The drive just whrrrzzz around at high speed. In the end I have to turn the machine off and reboot.
I have found that the DVD plays movies sometimes when I've placed a cd containing a program such as a game into a drive and then placed a movie DVD.

Could this problem be attributed to a faulty drive or driver conflict. Could anyoneplease help as this is really bugging me.

Are the DVDs region free? American DVD will not usually play in UK drives.
Magic DVD ripper will copy DVD to your hard drive and remove the code.
If you have another PC with 2 DVD drives you can copy direct to a blank DVD and remove the code. I recently had to do this on some DVD I purchased on Ebay with US region code.
You can download and use the program a total of 5 (?) times for free.
