    I just built my first computer and for some reason the DVD rom will not read dvd based games. it will play movies no problem and it also played the windows vista install disk but that is it. I was told it might be the security on Gaming dvds that windows refuses to acknowledge but i do not know how to work around it

    Have you try other cds as well? If still doesn't work, try uninstall the dvd drive, restart the computer and let windows install it for you.
