When attempting to load a software disc with the DVD reader it sometimes works fine, but sometimes it seems to stick after the first step in the program and one has to remove the disc and start again, which is not convenient. Can it be that the reader is sticking in the guides? Any suggestions?

Re: Dell Inspiron 1300 Laptop 8x DVD Drive
I think there might be a problem wit the DVD that you are inserting.
so wat you do insert the DVD before startin the installation. open "mycomputer" go the CD drive right click and then click explore copy all the contents in the dvd. paste it in your harddisk after you are done with the copyin process try installin the software from your hard disk.
i m sure installaion wont hang and ur installation process also will be fast

Look for a key labeled "Fn" (blue lettering) on the lower left side of the keyboard
Hold the "Fn" key and then use the Up/Down arrows to adjust brightness.
If that doesn't work, reboot your laptop and get into the BIOS. There is a screen for brightness. I don't recall how it is labeled, but it's one of the last pages as you cycle through the BIOS options.
This might be as a result of CDROM Drive speed. Generally the spin speed of CDROM Drives are always different, and there are some desktop CDROM drives that have Spin Speed as High as 60X...yes, because I have used one before. What in this case, I would suggest you do this, : Provided the Notebook CDROM Drive can read other disks, then just try and use your desktop to burn the CD disk onto another CD Disk, then try the newly burnt disk on your laptop. And if you have an external drive, you can just copy the CD contents using a NERO burner software or any other CD Burning software, and transfer it to your laptop. Hope this help you out. Goodluck!
I think you have CD RAM and DVD ROM i had also the problem of read dvd but i buy CD/DVD RAM Now my drive is working properly and successfully if you have CD RAM and DVD ROM then change it to CD/DVD ram because in case of CD RAM and DVD ROM it may read CD but not DVD but sometimes it can read DVD also but when we copy data to computer it may freeze or give us error so i give you one suggest to buy a new CD/DVD RAM
This is a CD drive mechanical problem. All CD/DVD drives have built in error checking for mechanical failures. When you insert the CD/DVD, it tries to grab and seat the disc, then attempts to spin it up and then read it. If the grab and seat function fails for any reason, the drive will eject the tray so you can try again. You should contact Dell support and get the drive replaced. Has the drive ever worked? or did it just stop working one day?
