    Forum rules: no All Caps.

    Are you talking about when you put a dvd in your computer nothing happens?
    -Do you have a dvd-rom/dvd burner drive for your computer?

    Wait, does this have anything to do with a ps2 console at all?

    Are you trying to get ps2 dvd games onto your computer harddrive? Or are you just trying to watch a dvd movie on your computer?

    Well that just sounds like you don't have a program installed on your computer to actually 'Play' the movie. Such as PowerDvd or something. Your dvd-rom drive probably came with some software to play dvd's on.

    So do you have a dvd burner then? Since that would be the only benefit of using a dvd ripper.

    What are the names of the software that it came with? More than likely there would be one specifically for that drive for installation purposes and drivers for it; the other would be the dvd 'player' software.

    Usually anyway, i've only purchased 1 dvd-rom drive and 1 dvd burner so far and they've both come with software to play dvd movies on.
