When I insert some DVD's into my DVD ROM I get the error message when opening, A DEVICE ATTACHED TO THE SYSTEM IS NOT FUNCTIONING this happens when I insert pc advsors cd, seems to be fine on normal dvd movies, very strange, bought the magazine and i cant use disk :(

That sounds as if perhaps the autolauch program is not working - have you tried to explore the disk and see if you can read the DVD?
