    DVD Not Recognized

    OS Vista Ultimate x32 SP2
    DVD Samsung SH-S183L

    I placed a DVD in the tray to do a backup. The spindle spins for 5
    seconds and stops. The system does not recognize that a DVD is in the
    tray. CD's are OK.

    I probably inadvertently changed something in the past weeks while
    trouble shooting another problem. I don't have a clue what I did.

    Any suggestions on where to look?

    Thanks.

    Many thanks for the suggestions. I might have a flaky DVD-RW. After
    fumbling around it did read one DVD. Try it again and it doesn't. The
    drivers are up to date. I might try removing and let windows find it
    again and see what happens.

    you might also try a cd/dvd drive cleaning kit and some compressed air.

    Hmmm. Good idea. Next time I'm in town I'll look one up.
