Hi Chopadepve,

Please try this method but be more careful during working out on it:

Since your DVD drive reads cd's, but not dvd's It shows that the hardware works fine. Now we need to Edit the Registry to fix this problem.

1) click the start menu
2) click on "run"
3) type "regedit" and click ok
4) go to string key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
5) delete "upper filters" and "lower filters" in the right side window.
6) right click my computer in the start menu.
7) click properties
8) go to the hardware tab
9) click device manager
10) expand the dvd/cdrom drives
11) right click the dvd rom and click uninstall
12) Reboot PC

Windows should automatically install a clean ROM drive after the reboot otherwise Open the device manager window and click "scan for hardware changes". DVDs just read fine if you have the correct DVD decoders.

If no luck then might be DVD read head wiped out.

Regards
ELLIN

    Could you let me know how much old is your DVD/RW.

    Have you check to run CD from it?

    If no good, then it may be internal problem of DVD reader Head failure.

    Thanks

This model of computer does not have a blu-ray drive unless you got a third party upgrade. In this case, you will need to track down special drivers, which can best be done by whomever sold you the drive.

Do my compaq presario cq50-209 have a dvd burner?


The easiest way to tell is to open up "My Computer" and look at the drive. If it says "DVD-R," "DVR-RW," or maybe even "DVD+R," you have a DVD burner. If it says DVD-RAM, then it just reads DVD's.

How do i know if my dvd burner is daul layer


Hi,
You can look at the cd tray door and it should have the types of CD/DVD you can use printed on there. If you see DL, it is Dual Layer.

Or you can go to Device Manager and find out that way.

To do this just go to:

Start>(Right Click) Computer

Select "Manage"

Once "Computer Management" screen comes up, go to "Device Manager" and click that.

On the right side of the "Computer Management" screen, expand the "DVD/CD-ROM drives" by clicking the "+".

You should now see the DVD/CD drive names. If the names contain something like "HL-DT-ST DVD+RW(DL)"....now mind you, it wont be the exact same name as shown here...i'm just using mine as a reference.
If you see DL or the words Dual Layer in the name, you have a dual layer DVD/CD drive installed.

Hope this helps!
Don't forget to rate:)

Yes no problem.

Sure they made DVD writers for those - usually about $80-100.
If you just want a CD burner and DVD player they are only $40-$60.

You can easily eject the drive by hitting the release lever to the right of the CD drive.

The CDRW/DVD combo part numbers are 08K9820 22P6980 08K9818 or 13N6765

They have cdrw/dvd combos for $34 at compuvest.com brand new. I saw DVDrw drives for $70 on ebay -look for part numbers 08k9868, 08K9694, 08K9572, 08K9818, 08K9820, 08K9867, 22P9109, 22P7011, 22P6991, 08k9785, 27L4358, 08k9784, 27L4359
