Reads cd's fine won't read dvds

The drive is reading cd's fine, but not dvd's. When I open My Computer it's recognized as a CD drive not a dvd drive. The only dvd drive that shows is my virtual. I went to hitachi to download lasted driver/firmware but when I try to install I get error message. The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. CS:0dd 1 IP:012d OP:63 65 44 72 69
Any help I'd be stoked

My samsungsd616tdvd drive cannot play or read dvd-rw cds.

Please note that the formats of DVD and CD are quite different. Whereas a DVD drive can handle both DVD and CD, a CD drive can only handle cd formats. Furthermore, a drive that reads both formats does not necessarily mean it can handle the writing aspect ok. You need a drive that is capable of writing/burning DVD. Most drives that come along with pcs can only write CDs but able to read both. So check your drive to see whether or not it can write on DVDs ok. Good luck

Dvd drive wont read dvd's

You state a problem here that is going to need a lot more info before a suggested fix could be provided. is this a new drive you added to your computer or a "factory installed" drive? If a new drive, did it come with "driver files" to be installed into Windows and did you install them? During installation, what questions were you asked and how did you answer them? By the way, my DVD drive shows up as a "CD Drive" in My Computer too, but it still reads & writes DVDs. Try right clicking on the drive in My Computer, click on "Properties" and then click on the "Hardware" tab. When the hardware screen opens, try clicking on "Troubleshoot" and follow the directions. This might work if you are in Windows XP.
