Hello

I'm having trouble with my DVD drive. I recently formatted my computer and installed Windows XP pro (use to be Windows XP home on the computer). Everything went fine, i installed the updates for windows and for my firewall/antivirus. All normal. I installed MS office suite e.g. Word, publisher etc. Again like i've all done before after a format. But for some strange reason I can't install a game (Battlefield 2) that is in DVD format from my DVD drive. I thought the disc could be faulty, which obviously would be strange since it worked before the format so i tried 2 DVD movies. But none of them would play (like they have done before hand)!! The DVD drive can only play CD-ROM's. My DVD Drive driver is up-to-date just incase you want to know :tazz:

Please help me!

Thanks

EDIT: Just uninstalled my DVD drive and rebooted the computer to let Windows install it for me again. Still doesn't work!

The thing is, I never updated it before and it worked. I didn't know what company made my DVD drive so thats why i never could update it. That what is odd cos I never have updated it before hand :S
