I have a DVD RW drive and have recently tried to install software from a DVD ROM disk.

When I put the disk in I get an error "D:/setup.exe is not a valid Win32 application" but I can run installations from CD rom disks.

I tried formatting my hardrive and reinstalling everything but get the same error, I also bought a brand new DVD RW drive and still nothing.

I used to be able to run these disks, but I cant resinstall programs I previously had working.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Does this happen with all DVD disks you try? Can you play DVD films on the PC?
