My dvd/cd writer does not work


You might try installing the drivers found on the the HP site located here. If this does not work and it does not read discs then try cleaning it with a CD cleaning CD available at an office supply store. Just insert it like a regular CD and it cleans the laser lens inside the CD-ROM. If that still does not work then you may have to replace the drive.

Dvd writer does not write or read any dvd on hp pavillion a1230n windows xp operating system


Try booting from the disc drive with a windows CD. If it does work, then try uninstalling from devices in windows, then scan for hardware changes and re-install. If its still not working I suggest doing a backup of your files and re-install windows, a corrupted registry may also cause this. If trying to boot from CD does not work you will need to replace the DVD drive

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

I have a HP media centre pc, which has a lightscribe DVD writer/CD writer. It will only run certain cd's, most of the time it will not recognise there is a disc in the drive. The drive will start up,...


unfortunately it's a sure sign your drive is faulty, the noises are the laser trying to read the tracks, cd's can be easier read than dvd's because the tracks are wider apart, whereas dvd's data is packed tighter together and the reading is more difficult for a faulty laser, you will need to replace it or buy an external usb writer.

Cd/dvd rom


It may be really dirty or just to old or has had laser failure.

There cheap these days, and CD drive with DVD Rom reading ability are like $20 to $30 depending on speed and brand.

A DVD/CD RW writer reader are also getting cheaper, around $60 and up usually.

And some advice. Dont by HP Pavilions. I've worked on alot and i find they have outdated parts cuz there remanufactured from older computers and you have a hard time upgrading due to hard to find drivers

My drive plays DVD's but will not read CD-ROM ? it did at one time is this a setting error


DVD and CD require different spec lasers (DVD requires 1.3nm compared to 2.1nm for CD)

It seems like your CD laser is broken, although your DVD laser still works. Replace the drive, it's not too expensive.

Ok so my boyfriend thinks he is a computer genius


Right click on My Computer
Select Manage
Select Device Manager
Click on Action and then Scan for hardware changes

That should look for your dvd/cd drive and install the right drivers. After it's done, restart you PC and your drive should be back.

Dvd/cd rom


hello melo21,this is nichu,
can you tell me the manufacturer name
of your DVD writer or reader. some times this problem persists if the discs u ae installing are not of good quality or else the lens of your DVD writer or reader might be a bit older resulting in poor reading capability of your DVD writer or reader .
alwas avoid inserting scratched discs which results a longlasting duration for your DVD writer or reader. take care
bye
