For example, did you try to play the DVD with VLC PLAYER (see google)?
Sometimes this is just an application issue. And to head off a question that folk seem to ask, no, it's not a driver issue.

My DVD player will only play CD's, not Movies. I am confused as to what I need to replace the whole drive, ie, what is compatable. The info taken from the old one is:
DVD writer model TS-L633
and from Device properties:
TSSTcorp DVD+RW TS-L633c ATA D...
All of the ones I have found have SATA on them, "NOT" ATA. I have read that they are not interchangable, is that true?
I don't care what brand I get, as long as it will work and play movies. Can anyone please tell me what I need to get? I would rather not have to install something that needs a bunch of adjustments, as I am just a user, not a fixer
