    My DVD drives are not working correctly. They do not play or read DVDs very well but can still work with CDs. Actually.... only one of them works with CDs... I recently upgraded my power supply, the other one was going bad. What do you guys think?

    I can sometimes use CD's but I can NEVER read DVD's and such. I can burn cds, however.

    OK, so not very well means not at ALL!

    Did they ever work with DVD's? I say "THEY", because you intimate that there are multiples involved...is this correct?

    What are the Make/Mdl of the units?

    Wow, I'm sorry, I wasnt very good at describing this at all. Let me restart. My two drives are having problems. One is a DVD-RW, the other a DVD/CD-RW.

    Anyway, The DVD/CD-RW will not read DVD's at all, will not recognize that they are there. It has some problems reading regular CD's, but sometimes works. It will burn CD's fine though. I think this is the drive http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproductdesc.asp?description=27-100-042&DEPA=1

    The DVD-RW will read DVD's, but does so very strangely. Cannot watch a DVD because it chops while it reads them. It will read CD's most of the time. It will also burn CD's without incident. Have not tried burning DVDs because I have nothing to burn at the moment. I think this is the drive http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?description=27-106-960&depa=1.

    Again, I apologize for my ambiguity.
