I’m new to this so please forgive me if I’m posting into the wrong section. I would appreciate any help.
I have a Plextor PX 712-A DVD Burner. In the past, all I would have to do is load a DVD into the burner and it would ask to to select the media player (Windows Media, PowerDVD, or NERO), I’d pick one, and then it would play. This was the case for regular DVDs, DVD+/-Rs, VCD, etc. Then one day, I tried to play a DVD-R and nothing happened. I put in a regular DVD and the same thing…nothing. So I double clicked on the DVD-RW icon in My Computer and got an error message of I/O error or something.
I’ve tried the following:
- I searched around and was told to go to the device manager and play around with the IDE Channel settings PIO or DMA and vice versa. That didn’t work.
- I went into the properties of the DVDRW and noticed the Auto Play tab, it was defaulted to autoplay music files, so I selected DVDs. Then selected “Apply”, but that didn’t work. I re-went into the properties and noticed it defaulted back to “Music Files” rather than the “DVD” setting I previously selected.
I don’t know what else to try. Any suggestions, or help is greatly appreciated.
