    Hi Guys,

    Does anyone ever counter most of the time the DVD-RW Writer unable to Read the PC Game "DVD" (Data) on Windows 7? do you guys got any ideal about it? :(


    I also even did cleaning the DVD Disc but DVD-RW Writer still unable to READ it.. I'm very sure is not a DVD Disc faulty... just not sure why it can't... any help for that... :worthy:


    I had try out (DVD-RW Writer) that it able to play DVD movie and some able to read the DVD data (PC Game or other).... o_O


    I also did upgrade the Firmware for the DVD-RW Writer too and the problem still didn't solve about the Reading PC Game DVD problem... :annoyed:

    Can you not try the game dvd in another machine see if it reads it that will rule out faulty game dvd.

    sign of a failing drive. I had a lg dvdRW which would write a dvd but then not read it. slowly but steady it lost all reading functionality. Dumped it but not before i had dumped some perfect dvds.

    As randomboy said, could be signs of drive failing have you tried renewing the ide or sata cable.
