Having trouble with my dvd/cd drive

November 26, 2013 at 10:40:34
Specs: Windows XP Home SP3, Intel Core2 duo w/ 2 gigs ram
My drive is acting weird; it will run any disc I put into it except the one I need to run. When I put that disk in, the drive will spool up and then spool down. It will repeat this as long as the disk is in the drive. I also noticed when I looked in my computer that it is listed as a dvd ram drive as opposed to a dvd rom drive. How can I get it to run this disk?

DVD Ram is just a third type of recording. Shouldn't cause your current issue.

Try opening up My Computer and see if you can open it that way.

What is on the disk in question?

Clean the disk and/or try it in another computer. The symptom you describe is what often happens when a disk is faulty.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
