  • Sir, If your drive reads cd's, but not dvd's That indicates that the hardware works fine. You will need to edit the registry inorder to fix this problem.


    1) click the start menu

    2) click on "run"

    3) type "regedit" and click ok

    4) go to string key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    5) delete "upper filters" and "lower filters in the right side window.

    6) right click my computer in the start menu.

    7) click properties

    8) go to the hardware tab

    9) click device manager

    10) expand the dvd/cdrom drives

    11) right click the dvd rom and click uninstall

    12) restart computer 


    after restarting, windows should automatically install a clean ROM drive and it should read DVDs just fine if you have the correct DVD decoders.
