I am having a problem with an extenal DVD drive which I've had for almost exactly a year now (last years christmas present)

It plays DVD Films perfectly, but I'm having a problem with it recognising some games. A few months back i bought the game "Boiling Point" and my DVD drive refused to even recognise it. It just kept spinning, but nothing much else. MOre recently (today) i purchased "The Movies" which is also a DVD game and i'm having the same problem. It isn't all games, because i have other DVD games which work perfectly.

any help is much appreciated

Hmm i could do. Although some DVD cleaners i've looked at in the past insist that they must not be used on DVD-RW drives of any kind, although I'm not sure why.

I guess lol. I'll check this weekend

Anyway incase that doesnt work, i tried downloading the Firmware for the drive (i found out it was made by BTC, and the model is DRW 11018UI, but the official siter has no trace of that product.) but it didn't seem to help the problem
