Hey windowfitter, hows it going, if you can find out what file system the disc has been written in we may be able to reccommend a player that will recognise it...

hopefully the disk was "finalised" when they burnt it otherwise you will be struggling to play it.

Open the disc in explorer and see what type of files are on it, look for VOB Mpeg or AVI.

MAT ALAN,

Thanks, I presume I have to go back to who supplied the dvd , To find the FILE SYSTEM,
Will they know what this is, and what i am asking for,.

Normally you should see a list of drives Like

C
DVD (D)
The letters may be different
They should have an Icon beside them
Just clik on hard drive drives removable storage till you find dvd-rw

eedcam,
right think i have done what you asked,

clicked on ikon (rw drive f) their is music on this side,. so i turned the disc over (double sided)
but nothing on here, SO I put the disc in rom tray
NOTHING,.
Clicked on ikon DVD DRIVE (G),
But cannot find anything on this
It keeps asking me to insert disk in to drive G which is this,.
