Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4700 PC Desktop ?

I have a Philips computer DVD model 8631. Will

\015 I have a DELL computer with a Philips DVD+RW model 8631. Will this unit run SafeDisc compatabile DVD's? I can't get the DVD to run. When I try to run the DVD it posts a message saying"please insert the correct CD/DVD. I have updated the drivers but to no avail.\015

Answers :

The safe disk is just a protection model from the company that produce it to prevent copying and so ..but in rest it is just a normal disk ...if this is a video-movie disk...try to install a program and a codec capable to read it ..and try again ..I suggest the VLC and the FFDshow codec to be able to read dvd format ..
