Rizone DVD Repair is a simple tool that will fix common CD or DVD drive problems at a click.

If Windows no longer recognises your DVD drive, for instance, or sees that drive but doesn't think it's writeable (it's identified as a DVD-ROM) then the program may be able to help. This issue is usually down to faulty filter drivers, and DVD Repair will delete those references, hopefully fixing the problem (though you may need to reboot first).

Of course if the issue isn't related to your filter drivers, then using DVD Repair may cause problems in itself, as whatever application installed those drivers may no longer work correctly. Use with care, and ideally create a system restore point immediately before running the program, so you can recover the original driver settings if DVD Repair doesn't help.

As a bonus, the program can optionally restore your autorun settings, and try to block autorun.inf files from running at all. This can be a mild inconvenience - you'll have to launch disc setup programs manually from now on - but will also improve your security, as it prevents software from running without your permission. (You don't really want your PC running unknown software on whatever USB key is plugged into it, do you?)

Verdict:

An easy-to-use portable tool that will solve many odd DVD drive issues. Though beware, it can also cause some of its own - back up your settings with System Restore before you run it

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
