    Will it read DVD's? It could be the brand of DVD's you are using. 

    It might be as simple as updating the firmware for the drive. Type msinfo32 in windows search and got o Components/CD-ROM. Google the drive and look for firmware upgrades. The best source is the drive manufacturer's website.

    A typical DVD drive has a CD laser diode and a DVD laser diode. It could be that the latter is malfunctioning. If you can read CD's, but not DVD's, the DVD laser is probably malfunctioning.

I have put a few dvds in and yes it will play dvds now you say about the different media i dont beleive this is the case either as i have always used the same tesco dvd-r it has always let me burn the dvd before i had replaced the hard disk. i have looked online for the firmware of the dvd drive which is mat**bleep**a dvd ram UJ8D2Q the latest version i can find is 1.10v which i already have installed? Anyone know where i can get this firmware from to possibly reinstall as it might have got corrupt maybe?
