Is this a newe drive that you just added?

I had a dvdrw drive that was new and could not read a cdrom. If its not a new drive, than make sure you have software to play dvds.

no it's worked before... i have interactual player and dvdn shrink but i dunno if that would effect anything (i kinda doubt it). Also when i go to my computer and look at the drive it used to say the name of the movie and now nothing shows up and there is nothing in the folder.
