Hi all,

For some reason my DVD player in my Acer Laptop (Aspire 3000) has stopped woking with DVD Movies?

The player has no problem with audio CD's or data/mixed DVD's but whenever I put a DVD movie into the drive it doesn't detect anything. If I double click on the drive icon it Opens a new window but displays nothing and it does the same if I click Explore?

I have checked the region and it's set to 2, which is correct for the UK and all the DVD's I've tried are also region 2.

It also seems to cause problems if I boot up the laptop with a movie DVD in the drive?

Like I say the only issue I have is with DVD movies and as far as I'm aware there have been no changes to the laptop so I'm lost as to why this is happening?
