    You need to remove the device driver for the DVD/CD rom and solve your problem.

    To do so go to : START--CONTROL PANEL--SYSTEM--DEVICE MANAGER--DVD/CD ROM....--DRIVER--UNINSTALL, this will remove the previous installed driver, then UPDATE DRIVER, to indtall latest driver.
    Or you can install the driver using the CD that you had got with the drive, if at ll, or by logging in to the DRIVE MANUFACTURERS official website and download the vista compatible device driver and install.

    This should solve your problem.

    Hello friend,

    There are so many reasons behind this problem.Because the problem sometimes found in system(computer) or sometimes found in DVD.

    1.Make sure that your DVD is properly burned so that it can be use properly.

    2.You have to check that the drive is in device driver or not.

    3.Make sure that the Auto Play is set or not.

    4.Then check the status of the disc by inserting the disc into disc drive.

    (A)If auto play window opens then drive is able to read the disc.

    (B)Otherwise computer does not respond means drive is not able to read the disc.

    5.This is sometimes occurs due to heavy virus.

    Thank u!!

    It seems like you are having problem with your DVD driver. You should update
    your DVD driver. Go to start, then control panel and then Device Manager. There
    you will find DVD/CD Rom. Now, uninstall the driver and click ipdate for new driver
    of your DVD Rom.

    You can also download the driver from the DVD maker website so based on your preference
    you can do either of two. This will solve your DVD Drive problem.

    HELLO ,

    Well there may be 2 things that may have went wrong..

    1--Either your CD/DVD is corrupt or damaged.

    2--The DVD ROM might have crashed

    also check the inner connections connecting to the DVD ROM

    it might have loosened..

    If none of this works take it to reparing shop for proper assessment of the fault...

    You may also want to re-install the DVD-ROM drivers and check again...
