SOURCE: CD/DVD rom drive not working

Hi there.
It sounds like the drivers could be bad or the lens has gone.
This can be a common problem with vista loosing the CD/DVD drives.
Do this >>>>>> right click on "computer" and select "manage" from the sub menu, then select "device manager" from the left hand side, it will generate a list of devices, look down the list for CD/DVD and click on the + icon next to it, from the drop down list right click and uninstall, restart the PC and let vista re-install the drivers for you, then try to use the CD/DVD.
If this does not work please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Cds wont play in dvd-rw player


The only discs that a DVD player is guaranteed to read are DVD discs. Support for CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW may be included, but is by no means guaranteed.

CD-R was designed to be read by an infrared 780nm laser. DVD uses a visible red 635nm or 650nm laser, which aren't reflected sufficiently by the organic dye polymers used in CD-R media. As a result, many DVD players can't read CD-R media. Some DVD players come with two lasers so that they can read CD-R.

But as I have already stated that Most DVDs today have the tendency of playing CDs. So if your DVD player is new then it must have that support. Have a look at the quality of your CDs also.

How can i get the specs for hl-dt-st dvdram gt20n


It's an ATA device. (ATA / IDE)

At MAXIMUM:

A) It can play back DVD's at 8X speed,
B) Read CD's at 24X speed,

AND Write,


1) CD-R's at 24X speed.
2) CD-R/W's at 4X speed.
3) US CD-R/W at 24X speed.
4) High Speed CD-R/W at 10X speed.
5) DVD-R at 8X speed.
6) DVD-R/W at 6X speed.
7) DVD-R+ at 8X speed.
8) DVD-R Double Layer at 6X speed.
9) DVD-R/W+ at 8X speed.

The optical drive in a Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976 Notebook PC, is a DVD Super-Multi drive, that is capable of using disks that are Double Layer, and R- or R+

In all actuality about what is the best burning speed, it is the Slowest speed that you can choose.

That is usually 4X.
However I would recommend 8X in all situations.
Makes a better burn, and is easily readable by other optical drives.

Makes it simple, huh?

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

HI sir, I have sony notebook (model pcg-v505s (pb)) and MATSHIT UJDA745 DVD/CDRW DRIVE .But the drive will read cd's and does not drive dvd's problem.This problem is how to explain.


Hello,
Please try changing the DVD region. It may not be set that's why it is not reading DVD discs.
Here's the link
If it still won't read dvd discs, then the problem is with the drive itself. The DVD reader(lense) is already broken.

I have dvd combo SONY CD-RW CRX300E but my problem is my drive can read cd but cannot read dvd please me to resolve this problem


Try the DVD-disk in some other computer, to see if the disk is the problem in _more_ than one computer.

Try some other DVD-disk in your computer, to see if your Sony drive can read _any_ DVD disks, i.e., if _NO_ disks can be read, then it's time to replace the drive.

I have a Plextor PX-820SA DVD-CD internal burner. The drive reads and writes to CD's, but will not read or write to DVD's (I have tried several different types/brands of DVD media). Please...


this might be because you have not selected the option to burn an audio or data dvd or your burning software does not support dvd burning
there are plenty of free burning software programs on the internet

http://www.majorgeeks.com/BurnAware_Free_d5839.html

BurnAware Free is one of the most popular free CD, DVD, Blu-ray Disc burning software available for Windows.
Using this program you can easily create and burn Audio and MP3 CD, Data and DVD-Video disc, ISO and Cue Image,
erase or format rewritable disc, copy your CD or DVD to ISO image.
hope this helps

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.

I have a NEC Lavie L LL550/3 that doesn't read


The CD and DVD reading portions of the drive use different sensors, so it's possible it would stop reading DVDs but still continue to read basic (audio) CDs.

The question is, will the same, working audio CD work while booted up fully?

If it does not, it may be a matter of a driver problem; unfortunately drivers cannot be found online for this model. Check this thread and make a post or comment to try to find someone who may have the drivers you need.
