As i told you check if the label appears in the dvd-rom drive by accessing My pc. If not then it's most likely that your drive doesn't like that disc (you could make a copy in a different disc brand). If the label appears then there is a different aproach to this problem.

You mean if the label does not appear, i can not play this dvd in my pc, right?
Exactly. It means the drive doesn't recognize the disc. It happens to me with Spiderman 2 and can only be read in my other drive. I made a backup with a disc brand that i know works charms with it and now i can see it when i want it.

When a dvd is not recognized it's because the drive may not like that particular brand (i have seen it happen only in 2 original dvds but if i recall about backups....) or the drive itself may be dying.

Check if you can explore the disc, btw. Can you?

i can not open the disk. when i click to open dvd-rom, it will say the disk unformat or can not read under windows. maybe im hopeless. anyone can you help me?
Well before attempting a firmware alteration of your DVD Drive I would try just two more things.

1) Use a lense cleaner on the DVD drive, it could be that a build up of dust is stopping the disc from being recognised.

2) Clean the disc. PC DVD drives are a lot more picky about playing dvds that have dirt on them than a standalone DVD player. It could just be that this disc has a speak of dust in the wrong place.

Both of those things in the past have stopped me from using a disc in my DVD drive, even though others worked fine. A quick clean is all that you might need.
in fact i can not play ffvii adv in my pc. but i would thank all of u who try to help me. thank alot.
I just saw the pic you posted last page. Sorry but i can't be read. I have never solved this kind of problem. You can make a back up and that will run fine though.

excuse me, do you have a way to solve this problem? how can i make back up? tell me please?
backing up your dvds:

get a hold of DVD Decrypter. its pretty easy to follow. it will copy all the data to your hard drive (its capable of copying "copy protected" discs).

get nero recode 2, and import the folder you copied the dvd to.
youll lose little quality if you use a 4.7gb dvds
youll lose NO quality if you can find DL 8.5 gb dvds

if you want a more detailed explanation, PM me
You will need a drive that is able to read that dvd. Then make an iso of it with Dvddecrypter as suggested before.
There is no need to use Nero Recode since you can download dvdshrink. It will do the same (compress the dvd so it uses 4.5 gb of space, the amount of a normal dvd. This is in the case of the movie using more space than that) and its FREE.
thank alot.
