You are worng, this device is CD-RW that read and write CD (700 mb) but DVD ROM that ONLY read DVD. You can buy a new device DVD RW internal (very expasive) or a generic device external (low cost)

Presario V2000 WIDESCREEN, DVD drive not read or write DVDs


I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that the notebook in question doesn't have a DVD drive. After looking at driver for that model, it appears it's only a CD capable machine. Please correct me if i'm wrong.

Look at the drive, are there any markings on it, i.e. a "DVD-ROM" or a "DVD" logo? How about a "CD-R" or CD-R/W" logo? If it does not have any type of DVD logo, then it's not DVD capable.

Does my laptop have a dvd burner


Can I have your laptop model number.

You can also confirm the same by looking at the drive externally

If it has DVD-RW and DVD-RW DL on it then it can read and write CD/DVDs
DVD - R ROM then it can read DVDs but cannot write.
CD-ROM/ CD-RW cannot read / write DVD

Cd/dvd rom not reading


It's likely a laser alignment problem inwhich you will need to replace the hardware. However, I had a similar problem once with a notebook and found out that a tiny bread crumb was near the spindal making the cd in the drive off balance. Check liberally for any debris. Good luck!

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N. Can not write to DVD


The DVD -R +R means that you can read these types of DVDs that have been created elsewhere, it doesn't mean you can write to your DVD under the format of -R or +R. The CD is a CDRW which means you can read and write to CDs.

I don't think that a factory Satellite P100 has the ability to write to either DVD -R or +R, but to only CDs. I have a P200 that has a DVD -R +R/CDRW and it can't write DVDs. These DVDs you put in are for read only. My Toshiba A215 can but it's a DVDRW/CDRW.

DVD cdrom doesnt read any cds dvds audio cds


The Rom may need cleaning. There are two diamond heads in the rom one to read DVD and the other to read CD. The CD one is most likely dirty try cleaning it else its faulty and needs to be replaced.
