DVD RAM drive/RW etc problem

  Demora 12:14 18 May 2006


I have installed a second dvd RW to my pc (a DVDRW IDE H16X) It refuses to play commercialy bought dvd movies. My other driuve a Lite On DVDRW SHW-16355 will play anything I chuck at it.

Both drives have there own IDE cable as my HD is SATA

Both Burn cdsand DVDs fine BUT its the playback on the H16X

The H16x is also able to read/write DVD RAM disks. Any ideas? And it will play the re=writeable disks from the lounge dvd player/writer

One thing I did notice was a message from Power DVD 6 That some drives are not able to play copyrighted disks.

I'm not too worried that it might not be a feature of this drive to play films. Just hoping it has a solution.

Copy write protection on some DVDs stop them being played on a DVD writer drive.

From searching around the net and just general decyphering the user manuals of the writer and Power dvd it seems that this drive would be in that catergory.

Just as well I set them up the way I did then.
