Little wheel spin and spin
To no avail, apparently.
I have a mild mystery on my hands. I bought a DVD of Indian origin it is identified under "Regions" as "All NTSC" from a dealer in Bangladesh. I popped it into my DVD drive, and it whirred and sizzled and made other untoward noises, but at no time did the computer actually read it.
Peeved, I pulled the disc out of the drawer and shoved it into the DVD burner (same brand, next bay up). Worked fine. It also plays correctly on the Panasonic DVD player connected to my TV set.
None of this presents any particular problem, unless I decide I want to copy the disc in a single pass. Since I'm not planning to copy the disc at all, this isn't an issue, but I'm perplexed just the same. There's nothing apparently wrong with that drive, since it's able to play other discs without difficulty.Posted at 7:37 AM to PEBKAC
