My parents recently bought a DVD recorder to record TV shows while I'm away on military trg. Anywho, they've been recording shows on Fujifilm DVD-RW dics.

Now, when I put them in my laptop to play them, the comptuer doesn't even read them. I played DVD R's before (can't remeber is they were + or -) and I'm pretty sure my drive is a DVD +/- RW. :whistling:

Why would't be able to read these?

Hi. Try going to your drive manufacturer's website for updated drivers.

I'm not at my usual residence right now, so don't have the papers that came with the computer...any idea how I could go about finding what brand of drive I have from the computer? It doesn't say on the outside of the drive (laptop)
thanks

Hello cicero.

If your computer was bought from a manufacturer (meaning it's not custom made) then you should be able to google your laptop model and you should recieve some results about the specs.
