have just got problem with dvd/combi cd/writer, windows xp has checked and found reader is connected and working fine, but every time i put disc in disc will not boot up and when i try to explore disc there is nothing registering with computer and most of the time it asks me to insert disc, is dvdrom knacked or could it be corrupt settings somewhere.

I have same problem - Device is connected all fine according to Device manager but will not read CDs or DVDs - I am instructed to insert media when there is a CD already in the drive. How did you fix?
I have tried to update drivers - makes no difference!

i posted similar enquiry earlier in yhe day - turned out I didn't have dvd decoder.
