HI ALL Im a newbie that has been reading this forum for a bit, but now i have a reason to post. i have this stupid little problem that i hope someone can help me with. i have a matshita ujda710 which is a dvd/cd-rw in my laptop. for the past few weeks, i have been watching videos off of a burned dvd with no problems. all of a sudden a few days ago, my computer stopped recognizing this dvd. it can read cd's, dvd's and mp3 cds with no problem, however it just wont read this one. is there something i can do? i dont think it is a mechanical problem since it was reading fine a week ago, maybe its a driver or plugin? i have the newest edition of mediaplayer and i have windows xp. this is really bothering me, i tried everything. can someone please help me?
