Do you have any DVD/CD burning software, such as Roxio, or Macrium, or any other type of software connected with the DVD/CD drive ?.
If you do, disable it, or remove it, it is more than likely that it is something like that, interfering with your DVD/CD drive.
Good luck and post your results.
Stoneys, no, the computer is freshly refomrated, nothing on it at all, my device manager says that everything is working perfectly, but says any disk I put in, and I mean any, is not a format that window recognizes.
it has to be the same format, It is warcraft, then I put in sims3, then I put in a music CD, then I put in a few DVDs, it says that none of them are a format that windows recognizes, when they ALL worked before the reformat, the drivers are all up to date.
