Question about Dell Dimension 5150 (DIM515MIN) PC Desktop
Suddenly I cannot play a DVD on my Dell, on either DVD drive. It has been playing DVDs fine for two years and now Media Center tells me that it cannot play the DVD and Sonic "sees" the DVD, but will not play it.
I have no problem playing games though. I have not installed anything new and have XP SP2. Any help would be appreciated.
I had the same problem from my Dell Dimension 5150, the drive that came with it worked for just over a year, then out of the blue it decided to stop working. i looked around on the net for any solutions and found that the drive was a cheap hybrid from Hitachi and LG. The problem is you drive not your computer, i replaced my drive with a Pioneer one, it works great.

BOTH drives fail at EXACTLY the same time?

Maybe the carbons of the DVD reader are getting too old and it doesn't rotate as fast as how it was burned so it cannot read the movies..
buying a new one will fix your problem..
the problems of nano technology is that things are too small to be fixed by humans...
maybe you could play those games because they were old, and since most of the stuff its installed in your computer it doesn't need much from the DVD unit..
