Hey everyone, I’m new here so might need help if you require more information.
I recently purchased a new system…
Intel Core 2 duo CPU E7400 2.8ghz
Anyway, not long after I installed windows, I just had some barebone apps installed… I was able to play and load DVDs without problems, able to play DVD movies and open DVD data discs.
After installing more programs I tried to install Orange Box, which uses DVDs. When I inserted the DVD, it did not auto run. When I tried to open My Computer to run it, My Computer half opened and then froze (Not Responding) and would not display any information or any drives.
Upon ejecting the DVD, My Computer un-froze and loads up, working correctly. This happens with DVD movies as well. When I put the DVD back in, the system goes back into this non-responding mode and I cannot get the DVDs to load up.
I thought that the possible problem was because I recently installed intervideo DVDcopy 6 or whatever, and it installed a virtual drive. That said, not long after I installed that program I was still able to run DVDs. But, I un-installed DVDcopy 6 and removed the virtual drive appropriately. No dice… it still does not work.
The CD/DVD drive loads and autoplays CDs just fine, but not dvds. I have no idea what could have caused this. All drivers seem to be installed and working correctly.
Can anyone help me out?
