My dvd wont acknowledge that I put a dvd in the drive

Im trying to convert my dvd The Day After Tommrrow so I can eventually play it on my iPod. But when I put the dvd in my dvd drive, its spins the disc, but then the indicator light on the front is blinking orange and when I try to use DVD Decrypter it says their is no dvd in the drive. When I goto my computer it also doesnt acknowlege that their is anything in the dvd drive. Please help!

the dvd drive is a Hp DVD100i if that helps.

It sounds to me that the cable inside your computer is loss. Not all the way out just loss enough so the DVD Player can’t read your DVD. I’ve had that happen to me before and it’s just a matter of opening up your PC and giving it a little push back in. If you don’t know what you are doing I suggest you take it to someone who does.

Good luck. :slight_smile:

This drive is darn OLD.
Maybe it’s just packed up.
