I went throught the same problem with a computer I built. All
functions worked until I downloaded the updates then the dvd drivers
became corrupted on my new and old computer. You have to reload vista
and do not update until the driver problem is fixed and who knows how
long that is going to be. It took me many reloads and much frustration
to find a way to use vista. Microsoft appears to have a big problem
brewing in this area.
