Dvd won't play

Go to default programs set your DVD player to open and auto start all video. So that when you place a DVD or CD in the drive it will auto load without you having to keep right clicking and opening the video. What may be happening is you may be clicking to open to many times and it has to catch up to open the video possibly. I would go that route and see if this fixes the matter. John

Hard reset

If you put a disk in and all it does is click several times, it's more than likely the spindle motor. It's best just to replace the DVD drive. Recording in the default high speed mode tends to cause the spindle motor to fail over time. Usually in a very short period of time. It's best to set your record speed to the standard mode to avoid premature failure of the spindle motor.

Missing dvd drive

I'm not familiar with daemon tools, but check what Device Manager (right click My Computer, Manage, then Device Manager)things about your drive. If it shows up incorrectly there, try deleting it, then rebooting or doing a "scan for hardware changes". And it's always a good idea to go to the manufacturer's website and checking for updated drivers, I've noticed especially with laptops, they come out ALL the time. Good luck!
