    When I inserted Call of Duty 2 into my drive, nothing would happen (no autoload) but the most strange thing is that in My Computer, I have CD Drive (D:) and CD Drive (E:). It don't say DVD Drive no where, can anyone help me with this situation please? Before I formatted, the DVD Drive worked but I formatted today a few hours ago and installed GFX drivers, SoundMAX HD Audio for my M2N32-SLI board and SP2, MSN.

    I already done that. I even unplugged the IDE and put it back in but nothing. Just now, I went into my Device Manager and on the DVD/CD-ROM drives, I right clicked that and clicked on Scan for hardware changes then the DVD Drive appears along with the 2 CD Drive I already had twice. Cause the DVD Drive is there now, the DVD drive isn't reading my DVD's. No autoplay or nothing. When I go into My Computer and try and load up the DVD by trying to explore the DVD drive, My Computer freezes then when I take the DVD out, the "Not Responding" goes away. My CD Drive works fine, just my DVD drive not working.

    Hope it works :)

    So I follow the steps "Method 1: Remove the registry entry" and "Method 2: Replace the existing driver"?

    JUst method one? Will it definitely work? I never used to have this problem though. Maybe once or twice but I always formatted then it went.

    Nope, nothing. I guess a re-install of my OS would fix it?
