Hi guys, i know this is an old thread but im really having a problem with this issue and i think i need firmware or updates or something, see im not exactly computer savvy, so i see you’ve tried helping the people in the previous posts but i have the LITE-ON DVD+RW SOHW 802s, and i went to the pages u all listed and couldnt find mine listed, and i’ve heard if you dont do things right you could really mess up your computer, so what im asking is if someone could help me find some firmware or updates or patches or whatever i need, please, hahaha i been tryin for a week now, so here’s my problem
i try playing a DVD movie that i purchased legally in the US, and thats where i live, so i dont think its a region code issue, in my dvd/cd-rw drive that came with the computer and i get this message when i double click the icon for the drive in my computer, “Windows cannot read from the disk. The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with Windows.”.
I have the Compaq Presario Sr1130nx, i have areadly updated my intervideo windvd player and it still happens, but it only happens on some DVD’s, another DVD i purchased the same day from the same store play’s back just fine in the same drive, i tried it in my friends DVD player. could somone please help me with this issue, i know its an old thread
another note, in My computer the icon for the drive is a cd on top of the drive and next to it it says DVD/CD-RW Drive (E:), and after i put in the DVD that gets the error message, the icond turns into a big cd and underneath it it says DVD-ROM and next to it it now says CD Drive (E, do you think the drive is thinking that i put in an audio or data cd and thats why i get the error message?
