My labtop tosheba before it plays dvd cds vds but now it can only play cd and vcd only it cannot play dvd dont know what is the problem i was saying that i need to install software.i want u to help me on...


Hi,

Welcome to FixYa! Since you said it's able to play dvd before, you can go ahead and try to do a System Restore going back to the time when the computer is able to play dvd. Or, you can go ahead and access the registry and change some settings. Last option is to run the Autofix from Microsoft.

How to do a System Restore:

1. Click Start

2. Click All Programs

3. Click Accessories

4. Click System Tools

5. Click System Restore

6. Choose a Restore Point or Date when you think that the laptop is able to play DVD

7. Click Start

This is gonna be a bit complicated since were going to access your registry, but just follow all the steps and it will be much easier.

1. Click on START

2. Type REGEDIT on the search bar on START Menu on the Run Box

3. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

4. Expand SYSTEM

5. Expand CurrentControlSet

6. Expand Control

7. Expand Class

8. Click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

9. Look for the Upper Filters / right click on it / click on Delete

10. Look for the Lower Filters / right click on it / click on Delete

11. Restart PC

12. Try you CD / DVD ROM

If nothing happens, click on this link then click on RUN and follow the steps, then restart computer and try to run a disc again, if still nothing happens, theres a possibility that the problem is with the hardware side or the media player that you are you using...

Hope this will help...Thank you for using Fixya...

I CAN RUN VCD BY LG COMBO DRIVE BUT I CAN'T RUN DVD ?


As you are saying that you have a Lg combo drive earlier it plays both Vcd or Dvdbut now it only plays Vcd. Your Combo drive lens must be weaken. So you should try using a lens cleaner Cd or its better to buy a new Dvd-Rom it plays or write both cds or dvds.
You can further contact me or thanks me on my email id ejaz89@live.com

Acer LAptops Optiarc DVD Player plays VCD but no DVD.


Only way to make sure it's the drive is to test it in another machine. If it's the drive just buy a new one, it'll cost more to repair in time alone!

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

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

Please Insert disk?


Hi Tool4theman, I have a CD/DVD r/w drive and it only says NEC DVD +RW. That is just the text the manufacturer has embedded in the device, not the results of any diagnostics. You've mentioned what program you are playing DVDs with but what are you playing your audio CDs with and are they commercial audio CDs? Have you tried running a diagnostic on your drive? Here is a link to the Sony CD/DVD diagnostic tool. Its meant for Sony drives but I have used this successfully on other drives in the past. When prompted for a blank disk us a CD. http://sony.storagesupport.com/cdrw/diagnostics.htm#dwn Let us know how it goes and don't forget to rate the posting.
