my dvd drive will not read a dvd

my DVD-RW drive will read cd's but when i put a DVD movie or DVD/PC game into the drive the computer will appear like it is trying to read it and the light on the front of the drive will come on. but when that stops and i try to open the drive, i get what looks like a blank cd/DVD that has nothing on it and no room on it. i need help please.

Re: my dvd drive will not read a dvd

What kind of drive do you have?

What operating system? What software? The more information, the more people can help.

Then try to find the latest version of firmware for the drive (Phlips) and update your firmware may be that would help.
