Unrecognised DVD



Hello All,

I recently tried viewing some data DVDs from my work mate and i cant seem to see the files. i’ve inserted them into two different DVD RW drives at home - Pioneer (DVD-RW DVR-111D) & LG (HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GSA-4120B) and i trialled 4 consistent dvds in both and none are readable.

The PC thinks and then it labels the DVD drive “CD Drive”, as if a blank cd was inserted or something

Interestingly all four DVDs read fine in my xbox.

Im certain both DVD drives are +/-

Could my settings be wrong or do i have the wrong hardware (+/-) ??

Thanks - Phili


what type of data dvds, what type of files?
