Hi Douglas E!

Looks to me like you might be trying to view a DVD-R that is in a format not supported by your DVD-ROM in your computer. There are plus (+) and minus (-) DVD-R & DVD-R/W's. There are also dual layer DVD-R's and DVD-R/W's. What type of DVD are you trying to view in your DVD-ROM? Also, what is the make and model of your DVD-ROM? Knowing this information will allow me to better help you determine if this is the case. Also, when you put in other DVD's, like DVD movies, is your DVD-ROM able to view them? (aka they are not empty)
