    Advice was insufficient and I do NOT want more of the same.

    Thank you.

    As I wrote in my initial message, I am having trouble playing some Netflix DVDs. Some play with no problem, some donlt play at all. They are not self-burned DVDs, they come from Netflix. They are not identified as Blue Ray DVDs either as implied by the first responder.

Did you try all those NetFlix DVDs in another PC? If your drive has some problems, it will not recognize certain discs, though it may come from the same company, person, or even burnt by the same writer. Please check if they work on other PCs. Do comment after trying.

It usually happens when you use a burned cd or dvd. especially when the cd/dvd is burned at max speed. not all hardware can read 16x dvd. i usually burn dvd at 4x-8x. i have an Acer laptop. it can read cd-r fine, but cant recognize dvd-R or dvd+r. it works fine in my desktop. i realized that if i burn the dvd at 4x speed. it could read it.

well, if you wanna get a new dvd rom, its up to you. its not that expensive.

btw, if your dvd rom cant even read retail copy disks, then you should replace it.

Some of the newer movies will not show on an older dvd player, there is nothing you can do outside of getting a newer dvd player with the blue ray disk,, these units play all the new dvd's also
