When I put multimedia data in drive d such as picture, video or mp3 my notebook PC can't read it probably it doesn't work and become busy in case when I put that data in drive C:/desktop so after that...


all this bad started just today? your you just found an old pC> and...........
start by telling 2 things
what media, name it, a CD , DVD or CD-DA music disk?
or what is what is D: driver
i can be 10f things, from dvd /cd drivers to hdd, SSD or lost more.

my guess is you moved a MP3 fail to the and it plays
sure, and proves the media player works (we use VLC)
is this windOWS XP, we cant guess what OS you run ever.
it must be stated, clearly. XP is pain with DVD/CD drives.

lets play a game, you said
XP
and you sad , all disks in my CD drive fail, all cd discs of any kind
or its a DVD drive (gee I can see it or read the tray front with those words there) and its a DVD, and all DVD disks of all kinds fail
that is cause by:
1: ;XP infected. as all are now. and pnp servers at MS are now dead.
2: XP does not have SP3 installed, AS IT MUST,
3: XP has the registry corruption INFAMOUS now for 16 long years, running google that fix.
4: the drive is bad. CD or DVD
5: your cd disk is bad but others work. so .... captain obvious this.

IN DVD DRIVE CD PLAYS BUT DVD CAN NOT PLAY


hi
I think in detail you problem is that you play DVD movies, write DVDs, write CD etc. overall it was working fine. All on a sudden you could not plat DVD movies anymore. At the beginning you thought your DvD burner needs to be changed but you tried audio CD and mp3 just to check and they worked fine, then you tried data DVD, that worked perfectly okay as well. than you think there was certain that it's a software problem. So you tried all sort of things that you possibly could. you removed the hardware and added it back on. It didn't work. you uninstalled DVD codec and reinstall it. Still didn't work. you installed one software called regcure, still didn't work. you tried windows troubleshooter, didn't get much help.

if you done all these thing......than i think..

The DVD drive still could be bad. I would try to borrow an external DVD drive before you try anything else. If the system picks up the drive and plays though your software, then most likely the drive is bad. I had this happen with a desktop in reverse, (played DVD, not CD). I think there are 2 different lasers in a combo drive. It's definitely worth a shot. Is there anything in media player waiting to be written? Unless you have a third party codec properly installed in Windows Media Player, it will pretty much act the way you describe.

hopes that helpful to you

DVD Drive not being recognized as a DVD drive


That is not unusual.
Several of my CD/DVD drives are listed as CD drives.
They still play and write DVDs.
The problem is cosmetic and not worth spending time on.

Now if you are trying to play a DVD movie you are going to need a CODEC (Coder/Decoder).
Windows XP does not include a CODEC to play DVD movies.
I use Intervideo WinDVD.

I hope this helps.

Sony DVD-RW DW-D56A drive playing up


I am not posting a solution, but may be the same problem.
I have dell inspiron 510m with DVD - RW sony A 56
It had burnt one DVD till now, but it can NOT burn any more DVDs.
I have tried burning using windows XP-SP2, Nero 6, Nero 8, burn my files 3.01 BUT no use. The only thing I got is different error messages.
I changed many types of DVD-Rom, from sony, benq..trying to rule out the storge media itself as source of error, but again no use.
Astonishingly, it works a CD-ROM Burner very well.
Any suggestions?
