    I'm trouble shooting an issue I'm having with my DVD drive, it's just not reading the DVD. It reads other DVDs fine, and the DVDs I'm trying to run works fine on other systems.

    I have some instructions to do what I want to try, but it seems they're for Windows 9x, so the option isn't in the same place as XP.

    In the event that your CD-ROM drive cannot read the CD, you may want to reduce the buffer and optimization settings on your CD-ROM drive. To do this, right-click on My Computer. Select Properties, select the Performance tab, select the File System, and select CD-ROM. Decrease the Supplemental Cache Size and set the optimization to No Read-Ahead.

    I looked around the web for a little bit, and I can't find anything similar for XP. Help anyone?
    Thanks.
