Question about Computers & Internet
My dvd/cd drive will notice any disk but a PC DVD ROM. It is a game. Should I be worried? I have loaded other games since such as Webb Foot, ect. Should I just take it back and get my money or is there a way to check for the reason it will not be seen by my DVD/CD writer drive?
There is probably a problem with the disk, since you can use other disks. try cleaning the face of the disk using some form of cleaner. mathanol etc. then give it a try. if cleaning it does not work then this may be a damaged disk. just take it back and ask for a refund.

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps you
