Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

"Disk is unreadable"


Since CDs and CD-R's work fine, its probably that the disc tray of your xbox 360 is not working. you might wanna try contacting xbox customer support to check the warranty status of your console. might as well send it in for repairs

I have an X-Box that either can't (or won't) play X-Box gmaes but it'll play CD's just fine. Any ideas as to how I could solve this problem?


Hi,
You,ll need to replace The DVD Rom Drive.
The Standard/Original Xbox. only has a single laser unit. which doubles up as a cd/dvd reader. if it,s not reading xbox games, but playing cds. the laser isn,t powering up enough to read the dvd format/games.
Eject the DVD Tray. If it,s perfectly arched shape in the centre. then it,s a thomson drive. if the arch is slightly rounder it,s philips dvd drive. if it has 2 holes left/right in the drive drawer, it,s a samsung. You should have a straight swap over with the drive, it,s only the hard-drive that is eeprom locked to the motherboard.
unlike the 360 which is eeprom locked to the dvd.
try a disk head cleaner first of all.
