A friend had some pdf files mainly I think that was on this dvd he made for me. (it was a copy of some data he had) It worked the last few times I've used it. But it did not auto start. I had to go to E drive from My Computer to see the data. This is not a game, not music. It is just files, and pdf files. I have tried everything I know to make the data show up. The dvd player plays cd's fine. I decided to scan the E drive dvd for virus, to see if any data was even being looked at. It gave an error. E:\ - error opening
Does anyone have a clue as to what the problem here is? I know the dvd had data on it previously. Trying to view data from Windows Explorer on E drive does not work either. I think if I can get this thing to work, I will import all that data to TreeDBNotes so I don't have this trouble again.
Any help on this would be much appreciated!

Does the DVD work okay in another computer? You could try cleaning the DVD with a soft dry cloth.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
