It might help to know what got your computer in this situation. Did you install any repackaged applications? This happened to me once when I made a repack of Winamp and didn't strip out a registry entry pertaining to the CD-R drive before compiling the package.

Rogue, not really sure, I recently burned an .iso file to a DVD, and I am unable to read the contents of it on my 2nd pc,

I tested this dvd on this pc here, and I can read, and run it just fine.

The 2nd pc just shows "CD Rom, (not DVd or dvd rom as it should be called in "My Computor")...I'm not formating this 2nd pc just to fix this one annoyance, lol
