Okay. The dvd drive in my computer is not reading dvd's. Only CD's. When I open up the "my computer" Dvd's are read as CD's. I updated the firmware and the computer recognized it as a dvd until I tried to use nero and then my computer went back to reading it as CD. Im thinking its a software issue since the computer did read it as a dvd when the firmware was updated. Here are the specs for the computer

Operating System
MS Windows XP Professional 32-bit SP3
CPU
Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 37 °C
Kentsfield 65nm Technology
RAM
4.0GB Single-Channel DDR2 @ 400MHz 5-5-5-15
Motherboard
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5N-D (Socket 775)
Graphics
ASUS VW193T @ 1440x900
256MB GeForce 8600 GT (EVGA) 55 °C
Hard Drives
2000GB Western Digital WDC WD20 EADS-00R6B0 SCSI Disk Device (IDE) 36 °C
251GB Western Digital WDC WD25 00YD-01NVB1 SCSI Disk Device (IDE) 43 °C
Optical Drives

Thank you for your quick reply. unfortunately, running that tool didnt work. so i went ahead and bought another dvd drive. same thing so its something with the os or the software. either way, I'm hoping its something simple like the software.
