Philips dvd ram sdvd8821 does not play

Recently my dvd play stop playing cd's or dvd's , first when a cd/dvd was put on it would occasionally play a little" choppy" , then it would take a ling time to load now it doesn't even seem to detect a cd/dvd is present, correction I do hear the device whir, spin and click and the power light does comes on . what can i check ? Its been suggested that that possibly one or both "optical pick ups "could be bad , how much might that cost.

DVD RAM change to CD Rom when i inset a disc


Check your computer drivers for that drive. It may be a driver error. It has happened to me before and I fixed it by reinstalling the drivers. It should be a software issue if you can still read CD disks.

If the CD/DVD disks play in another computer, then the CD/DVD hardware inside your laptop has "died".

Take your computer to any local computer-repair store, and get them to trouble-shoot, and, if necessary, sell you a new CD/DVD drive, and connect it.

PHILIPS CDRW/DVD SCB5265 ATA Device cannot play most DVDs


I'm guessing you may have locked the DVD region. If you right-click on the device in Device Manager and click the Region tab, does it say 0 changes available? Acer won't fix this, and claim you have to replace the drive. Can't find a firmware flash for this drive online, will post back here if successful!
