I have a dvd-rw drive and it won't read dvds. windows detecs it as a cd rom for some reason. it has worked before on this pc and all of a sudden it isn't reading dvds. it does read cds though. there are no drivers for this device, I've checked, and reinstalling it (by deleting the drivers from windows) doens't fix the issue either. any ideas? thanks.

sounds like the drive is dying. If you can try using it on a different computer to see if problem still exists. Also might try reseating all cables. If all else fails you'll still have a cd drive.

I fixed it. I did a firmwire flash and some other thing that the guy from support told me to do - I was finally able to contact them!
