DVD player only plays CDs, please help.

  Lincoln-Y 00:47 31 Aug 05

Hi there, I recently fitted a new hard drive to my 3 year old Packard Bell I MEDIA and installed Windows XP on it and now my DVD player only recognises CD-ROMs. It is a LG/HITACHI GDR-8161B 16x DVD-ROM/40x CD-ROM drive. I have tried updating the driver but windows says I've got the latest already, seemingly supplied by windows rather than the drive manufacturer. LG/HITACHI supply a firmware update but warn it could cause major problems using it on an OEM drive and Packard Bell don't have either. Any help with this problem would be gratefully recieved, thankyou.

Do you have a DVD player software eg power DVD or similar

Yes, I have Power DVD. It tells me there is no disc in drive when I press play. Windows also tells me to insert disc when I click on shortcut.
