I just bought a new game the other day that came on a standard dvd (GH3 PC version if anyone cares). This is the first dvd I've tried to run since I built my new comp and I can't get my DVR to run the disk. CD's and CD-Rs read fine (the only two other disks I have with me to try). When I close the tray with GH3 in it the mouse changes over to the "disk reading" icon and stays that way intermittently and it never loads. When I dbl click the drive letter it hangs until I eject the disk. I tried an autorun test and it told me the "Drive is either malfunctioning or the wizard was unable to solve the problem." I also deleted the upper filter in my registry (lower wasn't there... perhaps a clue for those more inclined). Firmware and drivers are up to date.
AMD Athlon X2 DC 2.4Ghz (4600+), 2GB ram
WinXP pro SP2
*I have the drive set up as master and my HD is SATA2*
**In "My Computer" it is showing up as two drives: DVD-RW Drive (D:) and DVD Drive (E:) - The D drive is the one that hangs, E says the tray is empty.**
***I also had powerISO installed and tried taking it off, nothing changed. It had set up a virtual drive.***
Here's a link to the culprit: http://reviews.digit..._specs1434.html
Any help is greatly appreciated!
