    OK, now that the drive is seen again by Windows, we can see what else we have to do. Insert a DVD in to the drive, the open MY COMPUTER and right click the drive. Click Explore on the drop down menu and see if you can browse the DVD and see the files (Just look at the files, not play them) If you can read the files, then the DVD optics are working. If you cannot browse the DVD, try a different movie or the Vista DVD if running Vista. If you cannot browse the DVD, then the DVD optics have failed and a replacement drive is likely.

    If you are able to browse multiple DVDs but you can't play them, it is a Decoder issue. WWW.DOWNLOAD.COM, Search for DVD Player, you should find several DVD players that are free to download. If you already have a DVD player (PowerDVD or such) try uninstalling and reinstalling it. You can also search for and download the K-lite Codec pack on

    If the drive doesn't read DVD's but reads CD's then drive has a hardware failure and will need replacement.

Dvd drive is not reading in my computer on compaq pressario v3000 notebook

Try re-seating the DVD drive so it makes proper connection to the motherboard, then go into the BIOA setting to see if the DVD drive is detected. If the DVD drive is not detected in the BIOS then most likely the DVD drive is faulty and needs replacing.
