DVD/CD problems I have a Gateway 6439 laptop. My DVD/CD player reads in use in the properties. No disk are in the system. I believe this problem resulted from stopping a CD while in use. My system has since been slowed and my audio now sounds interupted. Any solutions

Uninstall the dvd/rw driver, and reinstall it from the Gateway website. Look for your laptop model there, and they have all the drivers and software for your laptop components.

Gateway m-1625 CD/DVD-rom won't read any disc. Its spinning but no read. any thoughts?


you might try taking a q tip and some alcohol and clean the eye ( a little glass looking circle ) that reads the disk. Do not touch it with your fingers. Sometimes dust or dirt can get on it and it will not read the disk. This also works on cd players as well as dvd players.

DVD-RAW does not read DVD. It is unable to find a DVD. Is it DVD problem or player problem?


I think I've just answered this question :-

It won't be a driver problem, DVD drives are generic, it will be either the drive has a problem, the dvd has a problem or your media player has a problem

1) Drive issue - does it player other dvd's - if yes, your drive is ok, if now you have a drive problem, try using a CD lens cleaner or a blast of canned air to clean the lens.

2) Disk issue, if just one disk doesn't play, then its a disk issue or data issue. Assuming the disk is clean and not scratched. Does the Disk have the correct country coding for your region. If not then you have to change the region setting on your DVD player

RMB My computer - Manage - Device manager - Optical drive - Properties - Regional settings.
Bear in mind most DVD player will only allow about 5 changes.

3) Media player, your current media player may not have the correct codecs to decodes the video files on this disk. Go to filehippo.com download and install VLC media player. This will play about anything and its free.

My gateway laptop's dvd/cd drive stopped working, all of a sudden, but it plays music cds, it is just the DVDs that don't play them or even explore... what could it be the problem? how do i solve it? it...


Are you sure yours is a DVD player? It could only be a CD-CD writer, which will NOT play DVDs.
Open your control panel ->system->hardware->device manager and click on the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon. The listed devices will tell you if you really have a dvd player or not. If you do really have a dvd player, try a different dvd

DVD player won't read dvd-r. what can I do?


If you have determined that the problem is not the DVD-R disk (runs in other DVD players), try running a CD/DVD cleaner. If that doesn't solve, it's probably a hardware issue.
