Why does nothing happens when I put dvd's into the dvd drive?

  • I'm trying to install half life 2 on my Dimension 4700, but I put the dvd in the drive and nothings happening. It says to click explore on the dvd, but the folder appears to be empty. Autoplay doesn't work either. This is one of the many reasons i'm never ordering a Dell again :|
  • WOW, this is getting gayer by the second. Now absolutely nothing will play in the drive. It reads it for awhile and then nothing. :|
  • hi

    what dvd drive model is it? perhaps it might have something to do with sonic dla?
