Hi I'm MzCarmelladee, 

I am new to this forum. I came it across bleeping computers while searching for answers to my DVD question(s) 

My question...My cd nor dvd will play on my Vista. My DVD is showing as standard cd rom.

When I insert my cd, it spins but nothing shows. Please advise. Thanks in advance! :-)

You will be better served starting a post on your problem, it will get lost in an on going post.


Honesty & Integrity Above All!
