    If it can't read the media it will eject it. Perhaps it bad media? Maybe you're putting a +R/RW in the drive and it's a -R/RW?

    wel unless your drive is indeed a DVD drive it isnt going to play a DVD. windows does sometimes get confused and put the wrong label on the drives.

    If you remembered to tell us the make/model of your drive then maybe we'd be able to help you better. Just a thought.
