My boyfriends laptop (Medion) is having some problems with the DVD drive. It will read some burnt dvds (mostly the movies) but not all (alot of the tv shows won't read). It's not the discs, because they worked on my friends mac, but I really don't know what the problem is.
When I put a disc in, it starts kicking over, but gives up, and when I open any type of media player (power dvd, windows media player, itunes) it says to enter a disc into the drive.
I'm not sure if it's a driver problem, or an encoder problem or whether the drive is dead. I tried uninstalling the driver and then reinstalling, but that didn't help. And I have been searching on the net all afternoon, and can't find an answer that works.
If anyone could point me in the right direction (and sorry if I have repeated a question) I would be very appreciative.
When I click on properties on the drive these are the drives that show:
