My CD drive on my computer works sometimes and doesn't work other times. It will read data cd's more often than music cd's.


Some CD drives don't read all types of disks. For example it may not read DVD-R disks but will read DVD+R or Bluray disks. If you provide the model number of your drive I can give you a more detailed answer.

I560 will not read after burnning


i think you burned the disk with a high speed.
almost all of Disk burners can burn a disk with a high speed (for example 52X)
but they can't read with that speed (for example read 32X).
so change the speed.(i recommend lowest speed because it's safer.)

Will not read any disks except for store bought ones ???


Did you mean hard disk? If so, make sure you buy the right hard disk, there are something different between IDE and EIDE hard disk although their interface look similiar. Go to BIOS to auto detect the HDD if available. The jumper settings on the hard disk can not both set to be master if they are on the same ribbon of IDE interface. If BIOS recognize the hard disk and not reading, there might be something wrong with the disk. Try it on another computer or do some scan on it. It is an option to call Dell and ask them whether they have some hard code of their machine so the machine only read disk with some hidden information too just in case. If the disk is not a hard disk, then there could be standards issue of media too. You can check the specification of your machine and see the detailed version of the interface and see whether you have the same version of standards on your disk.

Dell Dimension 3000 desktop with Samsung SH-S182M DVD/CD-RW often fails to read disk in drive. Usually occurs with a data disk that has previously been written by the same drive. Almost always reads disk...


The drive's laser lens is dirty, try to clean it. If that fails to have an effect then the dirt has already been burned on the lens, unfixable, replace the dvd unit.

Dvd will not read


If purchased less than a year ago, it's under warranty. Get it replaced.
Warranties are normally for one year unless you bought an extended warranty. You should be OK.

What do you mean by not reading the disk?

When inserting a disk to the DVD drive, it runs an autorun program if one exists on the disk. By nature autorun will not run again if the disk stays in the drive. If you want to run the content of the disk, you have to execute autorun.exe from Windows Explorer. Let me know if that doesn't answer your question
