Up until very recently my Microstar DVD+RW internal writer worked fine. However, of recent, when I try and play a DVD movie, the drive will not recognise that a disc is actually in it.
It plays CD roms, and I am able to record onto blank dvds using Nero, but when I try and play a DVD movie, the drive just acts like nothing is in it.
I recently installed (and rapidlly un-installed) Nero 7. Straight AFTER I uninstalled it, Power DVD wouldn't even play a disc, a dialog box came up saying my Nero installation was corrupt and needed re-installing.
Running the Nero Clean Tool fixed this, but now the drive wont acknowledge DVD's.
Any ideas? Is the laser knackered? When you put a disc in it just starts to spin and then stops after about 3- seconds.
