No the DVD's were new.I bought TIN-TIN cartoons cd's.They were new and had no scraches on them but still they were not getting read by my DVD drive.I got a DVD with some IT book i wanted to check the softwares i got with it.I tried to open it but it was not getting accessed by my DVD drive.But then again when i wanted to watch my cousins wedding movie it worked and i could even make copies of those DVD.please help me i am not able to understand why some DVD's are not working on my system.
