I have an old computer with an even older teac DVD rom and it would be fair to say I m a novice - but learning...

It palys all data discs but I cannot get it to recognize a DVD purchased from a store. It tells me no disc - I have updated the drivers as per internet forum nstructions and checked region codes - PC tells me all is working well and enabled - any other suggestions? is it just old? wierd that it would read data discs perfectly.

The dvd drive is likely just unable to play the format of films. This sounds odd but each player has a region code and I remember it being a real issue for older dvd players/dvd computer drives to play some titles. The only way to fix this is to replace the drive, which isn't bad most can be had for under 20 dollars on newegg! Go ahead and replace it and it'll work perfectly
