CDRW/DVD ROM Drive

In my SONY VAIO notebook I have a combination CDRW/DVD drive. The drive reads and plays CD's without a problem, but if you put a DVD in the drive it just spins the disc and NOTHING else happens. I just upgraded the hard drive, could this be a problem with theDVD decoder software? I thought I installed a decorder that I had downloaded? How can I tell? What should I do to troubleshoot the probem?

Thanks,

Joe Doyle

I would suggest trying WinDVD and see if that works. If so, then yes, it would be a decoder issue.

OS is Windows XP Professional CD drive will not reconize a DVD+R for recording data. The drive is a HL-D-ST CDRW/DVD GCC4244.


A CDRW/DVD is a CD-burner and DVD-ROM combined unit. It is not meant to record DVDs only CDs.

It will not recognise a blank DVD as it is unable to read any file system.

Sounds like it could be a faulty drive. Will it play any CD/DVD like a data or music one?

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D
