Hi,
you have a very sought after dvd player there.
people are paying a lot of money for these.
They Only support DVD- Disks. DVD-R/RW DVD-ROM. DVD- Video. If you are trying to Read Any DVD+ Formats, they,re not compatable with this Drive.
Hope this answers your problem.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s recommend A Pioneer 111-112 Drive, reads most formats.

Will a HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC-4241N OC29 burn DVDs


Yes, but you will need a program capable of making dvds also, such as PowerDVD or CDCreator. I use CDBurnerXP (don't worry about the name, it works for all Windows OS's) because it's free.
