Major problem here. my pal has the following problem , i bought the game and its workin fine for me =D he bought this yesterday, and basically his DVD isn't reading, or even recognising that the DVD is in the drive. Here is what he has done to fix it so far. - he has updated the drivers on my DVD using Windows Update. - he has updated the Firmware on it incase it is a regioning problem. - he knows that it ISN'T the DVD because we tred it on a friends computer and it runs fine. his DVD-ROM drive can run all other video and Games DVD's. The strange thing is, his DVD-ROM works, and is seen in the "My Computer" directory, but it isn't showing up in my Device Manager, or when I try to re-add the hardware. the devise manager recognises the drive as a cd rom. when its a dvd writer :s any ideas why it wouldnt be working ? any help would be fantastic guys thank. dave.
