Re: DVD drive no longer reads DVD,s



Flightless Bird
Windows XP SP3
IE 7
I am having similiar problem. Cdrom play but not DVD rom. I have read about
the decoders, but I am trying to reinstall originally installed one. How can
I find it to do so?? Also, I cannot afford a new decoder even though they
are not that expensive. I used the XP installation Cd and saw Cdrom and
DVDrom. CAn I use this to reinstall the original decoder? If not, where can I
find it.

Thanking you in Advance for your help and being there.
