DVD/CD-rw Combo Problem

#1

I’m not sure what to do, if someone could help I would really appreciate it.

I have a lite-on ltr - 48126s Dvd/cd-rw combo drive but it will not play dvds. When i check my hardware properties it lists the Rom as a DVD/CD-RW but it will only burn and play audio. When i put a dvd into the rom nothing happens. I would like to use it to play DVDs but I’m not sure why it wont work.

What software or hardware am I missing?? :confused:

Plz help…

Thanks

In order to play the DVD from your drive you need a corresponding program like PowerDVD or WinDVD (or maybe WMP9 can play DVD too, dont know never use it) etc. Have you made any use of any such program?

no i have never used them but I will try something, I didnt realize that I had to use something like that to make my DVD Rom work.

Is it possible that my Rom is not DVD capable? It lists it in my hardware properties as a DVD/CD-RW but nowhere else. When i dig further it only refers to it as a CDRW.

Stiltz sorry but i didnt notice the drive’s model before, since i took it for granded that your drive is a combo drive. The ltr - 48126s is ofcourse a CD burner and not a combo drive. Further info on your drives characteristics can be found

here.
