Having problems with your Dell Dimension 2300 PC Desktop ?

DVD drive My dvd drive will play commercial dvds, music, etc. My dvd drive cannot read computer picture cd-roms or dvds, which it formerly did play. These discs do play on other devices. I used a CD/DVD drive cleaner. I checked the device in the control panel. It said it was ok.
