Just noticed a while ago that my dvd drive wont play -dvds any more. I know this because i have used -discs before and they played. They dont now. Did I delete something off my computer. I use sonic record now. Have the latest updates installed. Any ideas please.

Is it multi-format? Are +DVDs ok?

Tried a full reinstallation of windows xp and put all programmes in that came with it and the drivers too. It a Sony dvd rw drive, It reads + ones. It used to play -discs but when i put one in last week it wont read and other ones as well. It used to read, If I cant get it up and running will bring it back to pc world as its only a few months old.

If it's the DRU-720A that PC World sell, then it's dual format and double layer.
