PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Windows XP Pro
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model: QSI CDRW/DVD SBW-241
Error Messages:



When i put a DVD in my CDRW/DVD combo drive it won't recognize that there is anything in the drive.  I have tried a DVD someone burned for me and multiple comercial dvds.  It read's CD-R's fine and music cds fine.  When i put a DVD in the drive it spins for a few seconds, then just does nothing and when i go to look on the drive there is nothing showing, like there is nothing in it.  Device manager says it is working properly.  Also, it read DVDs a few weeks ago and i can't think of anything that i have done between now and then to mess it up.  Any ideas?

galatians:

What kind of DVD did you try? you are aware that there are
about 6 formats of DVD discs, and that most all DVD players cannot
read/play all of them?  If you use a DVD that the player cannot read, it will yield an error message.

hope this helps

I've tried as many different DVDs as i can, commerical movies, data DVDs, a DVD my friend burned for me and none of them work and i know something is up because all of those worked in my DVD player before, so not sure
