I thought it might have been the laser or optics but drive recognizes (& plays w/ no problems) cd-rom game (civilization 3) and even the most scratched music cds I have. Also recognizes all burned cds/data cds. I have played a few dvds on this computer in the past. So I know that at least it used to work. According to windows xp the driver is up to date and working properly. Compaq Presario laptop r3260 w/ combo dvd/dvd+r drive, windows xp pro sp2. DVDs will not play w/ realplayer, windows media player, or intervideo dvd player, does not show up on the my computer window, it looks like the drive is empty on this window. successfully played dvds before downloading sp2, could that be it?
