I have just recently bought a NEC 2500A to replace my cd burner, so now I have a dvd rom and a dvd burner hooked up to my computer. The problem is, while both drives can read cd’s and the NEC 2500A can burn cd’s, but none of them can play a dvd (original Bad Boys 2 dvd plus others). I haven’t tried burning a dvd yet.
When I put in a dvd windows media player opens (I have also tried it with real) and it just says “searching for media”. It shows track #s and chapters #s, but doesn’t look like it recognizes what dvd it is. Then it just freezes, and the only way to unfreeze it is to eject the disc.
I have tried connecting only one drive at a time, but even when I do that, same thing happens.
I don’t know what else to do, I don’t think that it is bad drive, cause my dvd rom used to work, but when I installed the NEC, it doesn’t anymore, but I don’t know what it can be. I only have a couple of days to fix it before the deadline to return the drive ends.
Please help, I am new to computers and don’t know much about it.
