[QUOTE=Thinkrealhard;2059778]yes on one disk it said something like ‘illegal mode…’ and then the other 2 that i tried wont even load anymore, i burned them once and i try to do it again and they wont read, not even in the nero scan.[/QUOTE]
That’s starting to sound more and more like the drive is bitting the dust. DVD drives die and sometimes slowly and weirdly!
You might try one of those cleaning discs, they have fine brushes to clean dust and stuff off the laser. Sometimes that works wonders. Sometimes a little windex on the DVD will remove unseen stuff that interferes with the read. Wipe across the disc not in circles around it.
