Hello guys,

My dvd-rom drive doesn't always rev-up when I put a game dvd-rom like Colin McRae Rally 2005 or Race Driver 2. I do have a antivirus, firewall and a spyware program and do scans about once a week and keep them regluarly updated. However if I restore my PC to factory settings the DVD-ROM drive will work with any dvd-rom,but after about one day it stops working again. Also I clean it once a week.

My PC specs:

Emachines 620 Desktop PC
2.7Ghz P4
80GB Hard-drive
CD-RW Drive
3.5 Floppy Drive
Geforce 5200FX 64MB Card
56K Modem
On-board Sound
6 USB Ports

The model of my dvd-rom drive: emachines make: HL-DT-ST DVD-ROM GDR8162B and the year is 2003, also I have no new drivers nor filmware. Please help me.
I love Windows Vista Ultimate

Windows 7 RC no more :cry:
