hello! i have a CyberDrive DVD-ROM (DM 168D model), and it cant seem to read DVD discs anymore! it can read normal CD-ROMs fine but whenever i place a DVD disc in, it takes ages for it to read it and even then, nothing works or it crashes my computer! ive tried a large number of different DVD's but still no luck! i even tried to find a driver for it but none can be found! can anyone help please? ive only had this drive for 3 months and i just hope its not dodgy already! it used to play DVD's before so i dont know whats wrong with it!

Try a CD cleaner if that don't work I would think put put hic put splutter

You could try removing the DVD software and reload, have you loaded software of late that's altered or replaced the DVD files
