RE: Can't read DVDs
Answer found. Pinnacle studio had a driver installed that messed everything
up. Uninstalling that made the drives work again.
For those, like me, who'd never done this before, the way I found out was by
going to control panel, system, finding the drive, looking at which companies
had written the drivers, then uninstalling the programs that owned the
drivers that were not microsoft.
