have you tried doing a system restore.
check for the device manager if the drive is detected under CD/DVD option.
if not try to instal the basic chipset drivers for your laptop and see if that works.

Can't get Dell Desktop to recognize cd/dvd on D: drive

With any computer this is a question that must be answered by those that provide the driver software. Like the number above (Dimension 3100) you should begin your search here=> Dimension 3100 Drivers that is if you have not altered the driver by putting a different player in the slot. What you need to do is test the drive using the Dell diagnostics. The procedure can be found in the CD/DVD FAQ. Run the "read test". You'll need to insert various disc types during the test. This came from Dell Forums. Click Here=> Dell Forums/Osprey and Here=> Search Results for "Dimension 3100 DVD Driver"
Hope this helps, Thanks, Sea Breeze

Put DVD in disk drive but laptop doesnt read it

This simply indicates that your DVD drive lense is faulty/dirty, try using a cleaner to clean the lense, if it doesnt solve the problem, then i think you need to look for a change for it.

Replacing a cd drive

The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try to download Free player software and Burning software

Toughbook CF-51 Laptop DVD Drive Problem

It could be a software or driver issue. First try updating the drivers for the drive, and try either using different burning software or uninstalling & reloading your current software. I had a cf72 with a DVD/CD combo drive that the DVD reader went out. This could also be the issue, if so you'll need to replace it in order to burn CD's.

My drive cannot detect dvd disc but can read and write cd

Check device manager in control panel under hardware to see if you have a problem with anything (a big yellow check). The most likely casue is that your DVD burning software (not the microsoft programs) did not install properly. Find out the exact info about yours by downloading a freeware program called Belarc Advisor (Googe it), Oddly enough, you don't need drivers for the CD/DVD drives. They aren't even recognized unless you have a non-microsoft burning program. After you find out what burning software you have-- you have to seek a download at the computer manufacturer's website, if it came with the computer, as it may be a special program not related to the burning software if you purchased from the software manufacturer---go to their website for downloads or upgrades,and that should get you going.

This is a problem with the DVD Writer model. SONY DVD RW AW-G170a has problems reading DVD+/- R/RW Discs. But there is no problem with any of the DVD+/- R/RW Dual Layer, DVD Ram or CD+/- R/RW Discs. It is the reason that this DVD Writer lacks the correct bitsetting for DVD+/- R/RW Discs. There is nothing else you could do other than replacing the wirter with some other model.
