I have a Hitachi GD-5000 DVD-ROM and recently I had a problem. I have a DVD+R disc that I was trying to use on my system. When I inserted the disc, I could hear the drive try to spin twice, then stop. When I atempted to read the volume from My Computer, it told me to "Please insert a disc into drive D:". I thought maybe my DVD-ROM might be going, so I tested other formats. I was successfull in all other formats. DVD, CD, CDR, CDRW, but the DVD+R was a negative. I researched the compatibility of my drive and DVD+R and it seems that it should read the disc just fine. I have unistalled my drivers and the ROM itself, reinstalled, restarted, still, nothing. I do not even get an error message when I insert the disc. It is as if I have not put anything in the drive at all. I have recently purged my computer of everything, formated my HD, and reinstalled everything. The ONLY thing I can even think of, if it is software related at all, is that I had Alcohol 120% (full version) installed, and a virtual DVD-ROM in place, I have sinced unistalled. Would that cause this issue?? I am lost. Any help would be gratly appreciated.
