I am sorry to say that your best bet is to buy a new DVD drive. Make sure there is a return policy. MicroCenter has been good to me.

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.

My CD/DVD drive is: HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GSA-H55N I have XP Home. I have burned numerous CDs in the past and more recently burned several DVDs. Today I wanted to burn a CD and found that suddenly my CD is...


Because they handle two kinds of media, combination drives essentially have two optical pickup assemblies in one package. CDs and DVDs both look the same, but they need different laser light wavelengths to read and write them. It's not uncommon for a drive to go bad the way you're describing, where one kind of disc begins not working while the other kind is unaffected.

An optical assembly is two parts: the laser to generate the light for reading and writing, and a sensor to pick up the light that is reflected for reading. Over time the laser power drops, and there's not enough light for the disc to be read reliably or, as in your case, to even detect the disc. Since you say you've burned numerous CDs, you've put more wear on the CD side, so it's probably just worn out.

There are internal adjustments to tweak the laser power and information is out on the Web about how to squeeze a little more life out of the drive. But the cost of a new combo drive is so low now that there's no reason not to simply replace one when it fails. TigerDirect is one company I buy lots of parts from, and they have two drives that are just $20: this one if your current drive is a SATA type (narrow data cable), or this one if your old drive is an IDE drive (a wide 40-pin data cable). I'm just using those for examples, since there are many other sources.

Another option is to get an external USB burner, and then you'd have a drive you could use on different computers if you wanted, and you wouldn't have to go through the effort of replacing an internal drive (although it's not difficult).

Physicall your DVD-Ram is defective. I have encountered like this before and what I do is change it a new drive. No more hope to read such DVD but rather than CDs is OK.
It is due to not often use with your DVD-Ram. Before I check it in computer center but later on it fails again so I buy a new one.
It's said the Speedometer is the problem or the "EYE LENS". Can read CD's but cannot read DVDs.
Good luck!

Reads cds and dvds, but won't burn to them


Your drive can only burn CDs, not DVDs. To burn CDs you need to purchase a blank CD-R or CD-RW at a local computer store. You can burn a CD-R only once but a CD-RW can erased and written upon many time.
Try Nero software for burning.

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.
