I have a gateway machine with a DVD Rom/CD Rewritable drive in it that will only read DVD's as blank cd's. I can open the DVD when I put it in the drive and it just opens up the explorer window like it's a blank cd that I want to write to.
I use Power DVD to view movies. The DVD will play in a regular dvd player, just not on the machine.
