    DVD rom problem after upgradiing win 8.1


    Dear all
    My DVD rom not detecting dvd after installing win 8. It was working perfectly before. I thought it may be intial problem for win 8. then I upgrade to win 8.1. But the problem still exist. It detect one or two dvd but most of the case it doesn't. Just today I buy a dvd and check on the other computer that it detect or not. Find out that the same dvd ditect on evry compuer but not in my laptop.!

    I don't think my dvd rom's leaser ger weaker because it worked perfect when i run win 7 just a month before. What can I do Please help? Please help me.

    When you say that it does not detect DVD, do you mean it will not play anything on it or you can not see contents when you open it from Win Explorer ? Win 8 or 8.1 does not come with DVD enabled player, you will need an third party player like DVB Support Download Center » Daum PotPlayer » Daum PotPlayer 1.6.48576 or VideoLAN - Download official VLC media player for Windows those are probably the best but there's hundreds of different ones out there.

    Thank you for for your help CoubtMike...But My main problem is not about movie playing DVD. Whatever disk i try to insert my rom didn't ditect. some time it detect games dvd as a blank dvd and ask me whether i want to use it as flach drive or not. But I know that disk was a games disk and run well in other laptop. How can i solve this problem? I can't play games because my dvd rom doesn't ditect games dvds...!

    Might be something wrong with driver, in Device manager uninstall driver and reboot, it should install driver again. Check BIOS too, i had a lot of problems when SATA is set to AHCI or Raid. Worked best if set to IDE. You should also check in device manager > CD/DVD if region is maybe set.
