    Helo, i recently bought a new PC for paying GTR Evo and a game called football Manager 2009. This is the same PC as my friend has and has the same DVD drive in it. But for some reason when I put the Football Manager DVD in it just keeps mkaing a noise like its trying to read it but its not reading it. Then I go on to my computer to right click and the screen freezes. Then I press the eject button and it wont eject. So I have to restart just to open it. It reads all other DVD's I have except this one. Iv uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them. Deleted the upper/lower filters and still nothing.

    Any of you more intelligent guys no how to fix this?

    Cheers

    Has the DVD got any scratches or marks on it?

    Had a thing like that once with my old PC. What i did then was update the firmware of the dvd player. (If I remember correctly)

    Good to hear that, it really should be a hardware / firmware issue.
