    OK, you guys have answered my other questions so I am going to post my last two.

    I have never been able to run a DVD on my DVD player - CDs work, but not DVDs (I have tried two DVDs).

    Also, I have an error on start up that I am missing a file vsdata95.vxd.

    I uninstalled a few programs when I was trying to free up some resources. Typically I keep files that say they maybe shared, but I think I may have deleted this one.

    Anyway, that's about all the questions I have.

    Thanks

    From what I could find, it looks like vsdata95.vxd is from ZoneAlarm. Do you or did you have that installed?

    When trying to read DVD's, do you receive any errors?

    Yes, I did install and uninstall Zone Alarm.

    The only error I get is if I try to open the drive it reads not ready.

    There are some additional steps you'll need to complete to really uninstall Zone Alarm and you'll find them <a href="http://www.zonelabs.com/services/support_install_98.htm">here</a>.

    What brand/model DVD? Are the DVD's video or game or something else? (Sorry, digging here - I'm really trying but I don't have a clue about DVD-roms!)

    No problem, it is a generic DVD player that came with the Compaq .

    The DVD is a movie (ok! its Survivor...). It works on a regular (non computer) DVD player.

    When I put the DVD in it just acts like it is trying to access it then stops. No errors, so when I try to open the drive from the desktop it just comes up with "drive not ready" just like if nothing was in there.
