My dvd player on recognizes original dvds but wont read any burnt dvds...WHY???


most of the laptop dvd drives have slower reading speed(about 2x) and writing speed(about 24x) compare to desktop pc's(about 8x and 52x respectively).
ur problem might have occured if the writing speed by which the cd was burnt might not be compatible with ur dvd player.
try playing dvds which were burnt using laptop dvd writers.
also try changing the modes in which the dvds are burnt.

Our dvd drive does not even recognize there is a dvd in drive I believe we purchased our computer in 2002 ...


Check the DVD and make sure it is not scratched. Try another DVD just to make sure it is not reading all DVDs and not just that one.

Did this happen just recently? If so, roll back the computer using the restore option. Set it back to a date when it worked (this will fix any driver, software issues).

If none of the above work, you will need topurchases a new DVD player for laptop. Check eBay for reasonable prices.

Cd drive not recognizing cd's


nope it happens to me, if your laptop still under warrantee call toshiba and they will replace it to you. the problem is the lens not reading the cd, try to clean it by dvd cleaner if its not working replace it.

Disc consistency, dvd player not recognizing discs


Your cd/dvd drive is most likely failed. Possible controller problem but most likely dvd drive. Replacement is fairly straight forward but replacement may be a bit costly. I would search for sources for used / refurbished drives; contact me if I can assist you further.

Got acer aspire notebook with combodrive.it plays all dvds except all ntsc hindi songs dvd.it does not even recognize a dvd in drive.


if you want to play any of the thousands of DVDs imported from any of the other FOUR REGIONS? You need to make your DVD player (or your Windows PC or Mac) REGION FREE, try download region-free software to unlock your DVD player, and make it can play ntsc hindi songs.

Good luck!
