I am having problems with my BF2 DVD. It turns out that the problem isn't the DVD, its my drive. How do I know this? I returned it and got a new DVD version and it does the same thing.
Anyway, the problem is that in My Computer, it says it's a CD drive and not a DVD drive (it's a Compaq GD-8000 that I took from my sister's Presario). When I go into the device properties, it has the DVD regions tab though. But the odd thing is is that I can watch DVD movies with it, but I can't read other DVD data like Battlefield 2. When I put the BF2 DVD in, it just keeps spinning like it's trying to look for something and it causes My Computer to stop responding.
I checked my ASPI drivers and those are up to date. Anyone know the problem? Is it fixable at all or is it time to chuck it out?
I'd chuck it. I've found and purchased myself a "Gigabyte" DVD ROM (READ ONLY)/CD BURNER (52x32x52) for $31.00 with $4.00 shipping.....(YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT...LOL) Newegg...check it out. It works Great!!! Of coarse.
