Maybe "Autorun" feature is turned off. (1) You can download a free program called "TweakUI" (powertoys) from Microsoft which would allow you to turn on "Autorun" if it is currently disabled. (2) You could try manually running the disc by opening "My Computer", double-clicking the CD/DVD drive (usually "D") to open its browser, then double-clicking on the file(s) you wish to launch from the CD/DVD.

I am unable to read any cd/dvd in my ATAPI DVD DH16A6L SCSI dvd ROM, checked in device manager there shows no problem.

Hi arunp_1995,

  • If you are unable to read any CD or DVD in your DVD -RAM drive , the this could be an indication of a bad lens , or a lens that required clearning.
  • I would suggest you to get a lens cleaner from the market and use it to clean the lens, by just inserting it in the drive , letting it spin for some time , and then removing it.
  • After you go through this lens cleaning process you can test your DVD-RAM drive , whether it's reading any disks or not , if yes then , problem is resolved, if no , then I would suggests you to connect the DVD-RAM to your friend's computer and check if it's working or reading your cds and dvds, if not then you need to get it replaced within the warranty period if the drive is still under warranty , or get a replacement, as it could be that repairing would cost you almost around the cost for a new drive.

Hi,My dvd writer can no-longer read/burn cds and dvds.It usually fails at around 17% and ejects! costs me alot of cds that are wasted..PLIZ HELP.THANK YOU..

Open the draw and give it a blast with compressed air from an aerosol can or play a CD lens cleaning disk, if that doesn't work, don't try too hard, get a second hand replacement from ebay or any second hand shop you have near you.

Not reading all kinds of disc sony and benq cdrw

If your CD/DVD writer is not reading disks at all then there is problem in your drive's lens.
To fix it you have to open the writer and clean the lens .
If you don't want to clean the lens manually then there is a disk called "CD lens cleaner" available in the market , buy it and insert the disk into your drive.
This will automatically clean the lens
But if you want to do it yourself then please follow the below steps.
First of all take out the CD/DVD writer out and remove all the screws and slide the cover to open it.
As you see the lens don't touch it with your finger but clean it with cotton cloth. After cleaning it place the cover and close it.
Now try any disk in it. If it works then you are done.

But if it is not reading the disks then you have to change it.

Hope the above information is helpful to you.
Thanks for using fixya

Drive no longer recognized by system. Have to open manually and does not read any disks.

It might be either a driver problem or your disk drive dying. Try going to the Fantom website to get and install new driver. Be sure to back up the old drivers first when asked! If this does not work, then your drive might have worn out and you may need to buy a new one.

Check file extensions of files on your recorded cd's. Add file extension to Roxio, Windows Media player and check your drive settings.

Playing PC DVD roms problem

Dvd drives can read from both DVD and CD however due to technological limitations most DVD-ROM or RAM read up to slightly higher speeds for CDs than DVDs.

When burning DVDs professional companies that make prerecorded disks burn their disk at low speeds in an effort to achieve both compatibility and low errors, that is the reason their DVDs play on most DVD-ROMs. However DVDs me and you burn at home and work at high speeds are prone to errors and incompatibility with low reading speed drives.

As a result if your DVD-ROM has a low maximum reading speed then it can only read those prerecorded DVDs and only DVDs recorded at low speeds provided thre are not scratched.

I believe you managed to read those DVD movies if they were pre recorded.

DVD Ram Disks

Sounds like it's just fried... Sorry... There is a universal driver for CD-rom(same with DVD-Rom drives) drives that windows uses.. so if it doesn't work it's not cause of the drivers(especially if you just reinstalled windows or it was just repaired since it reinstalls the drivers from the cd)

Pioneer DVD Burner no longer reading burnt disks...

yes your quite correct, starforce once installed can damage the fimware more so for multi writers, a common problem will be slower recording speeds. It can even damage the hardware itself and render the writer totally useless. If your getting to that stage, for the price of a new writer, it's not worth the worry, replacing the drive is the only answer.
