Hi there

Playing DVD on a computer can be complex, and involves many processes, each dependent on the one before it. Sometimes a DVD is released that includes features so advanced that some hardware may have a difficult time reading it properly. If the drive’s manufacturer has been advised about the issue, they usually release an upgrade to the firmware of the DVD drive to correct the issues.
Firmware is the control software in a storage device, and contains coded instructions for recognizing the contents of whatever disc is inserted. It is referred to as "firmware" because it is not stored on a disc itself, but rather a hardware chip inside the drive’s housing. Other devices, such as ZIP drives, CD-ROM drives, floppy disk drives, and even hard drives, all have their own firmware as well. This is a crucial component when using disc-based media. Fortunately, the chip that stores the firmware information is designed to be "reprogrammed" with new instructions, should problems arise. If this situation exists in your computer, then it is possible that the manufacturer of your DVD drive has released an update that corrects the problem.

so my advice, check your manufacturers site if there is a firmware upgrade for your dvdrom. and always put in mind to clean your rom.

hope this helps.

fixya!

Not knowing the operating system, In windows 7 and 8 sometimes it forgets the cd format. Then you need to go to the device manager and remove the drive and let windows re-detect it.

Trojan Horse virus still exist in partition files and you should format entire HDD with Disk-Manager-2000 or some thing like that. After format, reinstall Win XP.
