DVD drive reads DVDs but not CDs

I recently bought a Tiny Green 320 laptop 2nd hand. it works fine except the DVD drive, which reads DVDs fine but doesn't do anything with audio CDs or CD-ROMS. The discs work in another laptop and our stereo, so the problem is definitely in the Tiny laptop. Is there an easy (for a non-expert) way to sort this out?

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

Problem with portable dvd player


i would return the item to your retailer as it should hold a 12 month warranty, as if it cannot read cds or dvd, the lens is faulty, and trying to repair it yourself will void your warranty. Please dont forget your ratings are important, thank you

DVD drive can read cds with no problems, but can no longer read DVDs


If you have used and/or burned a DVD that wasn't tested to work successfully with your DVD-rom then there is the off chance that it ruined the DVD portion of the drive. I have had the same problem myself and unfortunately the only solution is to replace the drive or get an external drive. If your laptop is still under warranty then see what the manufacturer can do for you.
