Okay, try the following:

Go into your BIOS, and check that your DVD drive is appearing in the BIOS. If its not your going to have to open your computer and check taht a cable that goes into the DVD drive has fallen out.If none have, just give them a push in just in case.

If its there and assuming you have XP or Vista go into device manager, and look for a certain device that may have a question mark or X beside it, If the DVD drive is showing there you may need to download the required drivers for it. Go to the manufacturers website, type your products name and find the drivers from there.

Ok i asked before if my drive will burn both dvd and cd. the answer was yes. but when i installed the drive and ran my dvd creator program. it said this drive is dvd read only.


Hi mikey7420 ,


The drive name itself is the clue to know whether it can burn dvds or not.

  • In your case it's a CD-RW (read and write or rewritable) and DVD-ROM (Read only memory and not read and write or rewritable as in the case of CD)
  • Perhaps the one who told you did not understand your question properly , and understood it , in the sense that it can read CDs as well as DVDs , as far as Dvd-ROM drives are concerned many shopkeepers who are especially new working in the shop just make a guess and answer our question which could lead to this misunderstanding or incorrect information being passed on.
  • So the next time you buy a DVD drive which should have a read and write functionality as well , then look up for a CD_RW,DVD-RW drive.
  • Also remember that DVD-RW drive can by default read and write CDs as well , but it's not true for CD drives..
  • So usually a DVD-RW drive can read and write Cds as well as DVDs but a CD-RW drive can either read or read and write a DVD depending on whether it's a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW.
Hope this helps.

My dvd drive doesnt reconise disks when they are in the drive


2 things that u have to check
1) Is your DVD disks damage so u cannot read it?
2) Is your DVD drive spoil so cannot read your DVD?

To check condition 1), u may try insert other "good" DVD to make sure your DVD drive may read it. If your DVD drive can read other DVD so this mean your current DVD disks are damage.
To check condition 2), u may try load your DVD disks using other laptop. If your DVD show readable on other laptop, then this mean your current DVD drive is spoil or may have poor lens sensibility. Try to clean your DVD drive or replace a new 1 if necessary.

I can read data cd but cannot read data dvd


Are you sure that the drive you are trying to read the DVD with, is actually a DVD drive and not a CD drive? Check on the front of the drive draw, it should say DVD on it. If not you will need to purchase a DVD drive to read DVD's. Nik.

My dvd combo does not read dvd


There are separate lasers for CD reading, and for DVD reading. This is why it is possible to have a drive that reads only CDs but not DVDs, or the other way around. And your particular combo unit seems to have a lot of these problems. Since the drive doesn't work it's almost definitely a problem with the drive itself (I'm assuming that there is nothing wrong with the discs you tried to read). If that drive is still covered by a warranty period, send it back for repairs. Otherwise, I can't see the harm in trying to tinker with it yourself as the DVD portion of it is dead anyways. Ummm, on a side note...CompUSA is going out of business and they are selling things cheap. I got a DVD lightscribe burner for $40...booyah!
