More about : dvd player working laptop arkadi January 9, 2011 12:16:10 PM Usually burners do that if you have blank disk, no disk or it just cant read from the disk. If it cant read from the disk (dvd or cd) you have two options....bad media or bad drive. jarrydklapper January 9, 2011 12:23:24 PM cool, thanks man.. it is a new dvd, so im guessing it must be the drive. i might check to see if there is driver updates or something... thanks again friend Can't find your answer ?
