About 5 minutes ago...I was trying to play a DVD on my computer. When I put it in my DVD drive, it just made a few noises but did nothing. I tried to go to Run-->D: but it still didn't open up. It didn't make sense!

I went to "My Computer"

It listed

C: - Local Disk
D: - CD Drive
E: - CD Drive

What the? Minutes beforehand...I had been playing DVD's perfectly...

I went to the D: and E: 's properties. Both said that they were full! Capacity: 0 Bytes...Used: 0 Bytes...but they were both empty!

WOAH! Just now...I took a blank DVD out of my drive which I was planning to burn with. I opened my computer again...the names had changed back to normal but their capacity was still 0 bytes.

CAN SOMEBODY HELP ME?

I have a PIONEER DVD RW Drive and a MITSUMI CD Rom drive...

Nope...it seems to be reading DVD's as CD's. I'm positive I haven't got my drives mixed up.

Go into Device Mgr and check for errors and look at properties.
