    Hi

    I have a Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-109 and until I needed to reformat my hard
    drive, I could read both data DVDs and Video DVDs with VOB files.

    Now it will only read data DVDs and when I put a video DVD in the drive
    label in File Manager calls it a CD and there is nothing on it, and claims
    it is blank.

    Does anyone know how to solve this problem or any download links I may need
    to solve this.

    Many thanks to all who can help

    You need to get a DVD player software, something like Power DVD which does
    not cost much.

    Thanks for your advice it is appreciated. Since posting I installed Power
    DVD, and yes Power DVD can read Video DVDs, but alas File Manager does not
    recognise, and considers any DVD as blank and a CD.

    I appreciate that you responded. thank you

    Breezereef.

    Sounds like you havent re-installed the stuff that adds UDF file system
    recognition, like your preferred packet-writing software...

    Thanks Biz

    Of all the installing of various bits and pieces one has to do after
    reformatting, that was indeed one that I forgot. I can read the disks now.

    Had been tearing my hair out.

    Many thanks.
