hello everyone, my dvd player isnt opening any dvd's. its a dvd-CDRW combo drive. its been an year since i had it. it used to play things quite normally. but i stopped playing dvd's on it for awhile. only recently i got a dvd movie to play and it kept reading it and even though i left it like that for awhile nothing really happened. i tried playing the dvd's i had(which the player opened without any trouble before) but the same thing happened. i was wondering what could be the problem. the cd's open fine. i'm not really sure what brand drive it is. it basically came along with my compaq computer. thanks a lot in advance.
