quick question does this drive write dvds, keeps coming up with " cannot play dvd cos problem with digital copy protection between your dvd drive, decoder, and video card. Try installing an updating driver for your video card
No it only writes cd's. The dvd portion is read only.
it sounds like you need to install a dvd decoder. Earlier versions of windows ( 95/88/Xp and some versions of Vista) did not include a decoder and you had to buy one seperately. I beleive there are free one available now but I could be mistaken.
Try installing VLC media player. I beleive that comes with a dvd decoder.
