Cannot read DVD-R cd on my VAIO DVD ROM drive

  1. Hello all,

    I need some help please :( a year or so ago, I burned some personal movies of me and my bf on to a DVD-R DVD disc successfully. Since that time, I have viewed those movies on my VAIO laptop by playing the DVD-R cd on my laptop.

    But now all of a sudden, when I try to watch the movies on my laptop by putting the DVD-R cd in my dvd rom drive, it shows nothing is on the cd :( I don't know what's up, it won't load anything or show anything. Although it does show that most of the space of 4gb is occupied.

    Please suggest what I can do, I will be ever so grateful!

    Nadia

    First thing would be to try and read this disk with another disk drive on another computer. If that works, then try another DVD in your laptop. If another computer can't read the disk either, it looks like somethings happened to your disk unfortuntately :S and disk data recovery can be tricky, but it's good that it's showing the space on the disk being occupied.
