Having problems with your Acer Aspire T160 (AST160UA3400) PC Desktop ?

DVD's not working

\015 I am running windows XP home. The CD/DVD drive model # is: HL-DT-ST RW/DVD GCC4522B. It has no problem reading Cd's, but it no longer recognizes DVD's. I also have an external HP DVD burner that no longer recognizes DVD's. Both drives previously worked and now only work with CD's, but not DVD's. The computer came with Power DVD, the external DVD burner came with NERO. I haven't re-installed Nero yet because I was afraid it might have been the beginning of my problem (a software conflict or something?). Could firmware be the problem?\015

Answers :
