Please try the discs on another machine to see if the problem is with the cdrom drive in your unit.


Let me know how it goes.

    if the cd's work fine in another cd rom drive, I suspect you have a faulty drive, or possibly dirtly lens. as cd dvd drives don't cost more than (including shipping)30 $ New, (www.newegg.com). I would replace the drive with a new one. If your drive is new, I would try it on another pc to see if you can replicate the problem, If you can replicate the problem on another pc, and the drive is new (still covered by warranty) I would get it warranty replaced or repaired.

I have a dell gx520 running xp home . I want to dual boot ubuntu but the cd rom will not read from ubuntu disk. It readsxp and music cd's ok so it is not the rom at fault


Hello,
Make sure you set the BIOS to boot on the CD rom first. You can set it via the BIOS utility. Usually you press the F5 key and then go to boot options. And then place your CD ROM drive on the 1st boot priority.
Make sure also that your CD installer is working and not from a bad ISO download.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

How can I burn pictures onto a DVD, so ot can be


If you have a DVD burner you can use the burning software that came with the unit. Maybe "Sonic" or "Nero".
Start the burning software and drag add drop your pictures into the "burn window".

Check your DVD front door to see if it says DVD Writer or DVD ROM.
If it says ROM, then it is not a burner.

Best DVD or CD discs is Verbatim brand (OfficeMAX, best price).

Dvd-cdrom plays music-cd.Not dvd-cd :No Valide Drive/Disc Found


Simply change the ROM to DVD RW drive since this is an old PC and now days nobody uses a dvd rom but a dvd writer. It will be worth it since it can do all the functions and is also more hardy........sodeep

Dell e510 cd dvd rw not working


Try going into your Device manager start right click on my computer click on properties then click hardware tab. Under this tab click device Manager. Under disc drives find the drive that you are having problems with and right click on it. Then try to update drivers. If this dose not work do the same thing but this time uninstall the drive. After it uninstalls go to your controll pannel and click on add hardware. It should find and reinstall the cd rom and it's associated files and hopefully work once again.
