Question about Dynex DX-DVDR100 (DXDVDR100) Internal DVD Drive

1 Answer

Wont read any DVDs

I have had this drive for months now and cannot get it to read any dvds. It does fine with all software even dvdrom but if I put in a dvd it just spins over and over like its trying to read and never identifies the disk. I thought it was a software problem so I am on my 3rd set of player software. It spins and I am unable to do anything with the drive until I push the eject button on the dvdplayer itself (cannot get a right click menu when it is spinning)

I have a SD M1502 DVD-ROM drive. it can read CD's just fine, but it can only read SOME DVDs. example: im watching an anime series, store bought, but when i get to Disc 4 the drive cant read it. the DVDs...

There are a couple of things to look at: First of all does your computer have software to read copy-
protected DVD's. Second if this anime set of DVD's is imported from Japan it might not be compatible with players from the US. If you look on the Internet you can find patches for your DVD player software to read foreign DVD's. Check out VLC and libdvdcss.

My samsungsd616tdvd drive cannot play or read dvd-rw cds.

Please note that the formats of DVD and CD are quite different. Whereas a DVD drive can handle both DVD and CD, a CD drive can only handle cd formats. Furthermore, a drive that reads both formats does not necessarily mean it can handle the writing aspect ok. You need a drive that is capable of writing/burning DVD. Most drives that come along with pcs can only write CDs but able to read both. So check your drive to see whether or not it can write on DVDs ok. Good luck
