Philips DVD/RW 3200 cd/DVD Rom won't read DVDs anymore
 
My DVD rom crashed when reading a dvd. The secondary IDE changed to PIO now I got it back to DMA. But it still doesn't work :? It still reads cd's.
Is the DVD part broken now :?:

Did you try another DVD :?:
If it still doesn't read other DVDs, have you cleaned the lens :?:
If it still doesn't read DVDs after cleaning, but it reads CD-Rs, then :arrow: R.I.P. your DVD drive :!:

It doen't even read data dvd's anymore :( It crashed reading a scratched DVD (My standalone DVD player can still read :P so it doesn't really matter I just wanted to try making a KSVCD with mencoder from a dvd source :)


EDIT: My dvdrom is on the secondary IDE master shouldn't it be on a slave position or doesn't that matter?

That's the best place for it to be, because it's alone on a channel.
If you put it on the primary slave, the I/O would be shared with your primary master (hard disk), so you'll loose performance.

Ah well to bad then :P I'm getting a laptop with probably a dvd burner in it when I start university at the end of this year :)
