Dvd reading error


Try using a known-good (for instance, a movie you just watched on your TV). If it doesn't read that disc, make certain you have seated the disk in the drive properly (Laptop drives have a *CLICK!* when you have seated the disc properly). If that doesn't work- if the laptop is in warranty, get it fixed. If not, use an external drive to fulfill your media needs

My computer says that it has Cyberlink DVD 9 on it. But I can't play any DVDs on it. What shall I do?


First, gotta make sure you have a DVD drive, most modern computers do: DVD, DVD/ CD-RW, or DVD-RW drives are commonplace these days. If you have a DVD drive and it doesn't play anything, then more than likely you have a defective drive (DVD drives not working with DVD discs is a fairly common type of failure - insofar as failures go).

To be absolutely certain, try playing an original, commercial DVD movie - one that you know is good - if it still doesn't play it then it is, in all likelihood, a failed DVD drive.

I have a NEC Lavie L LL550/3 that doesn't read


The CD and DVD reading portions of the drive use different sensors, so it's possible it would stop reading DVDs but still continue to read basic (audio) CDs.

The question is, will the same, working audio CD work while booted up fully?

If it does not, it may be a matter of a driver problem; unfortunately drivers cannot be found online for this model. Check this thread and make a post or comment to try to find someone who may have the drivers you need.

No Sir, Acer Aspire 4330 comes with different Optical Media Loadings, ( You can see a pdf file here )
Like;
  • DVD/CD-RW combo drive
  • 8X DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive.
But you have the first one, The Combo drive not the super so you can READ both CD's DVD's but can write only CD's.

Hope this removes your dilemma.

If helpful, kindly do Rate!

My Combo Drive is not visible


Please read to the end before atempting this.
Is this XP or Vista. In Windows based computers some times the High and Low filters get messed up in the registry. If the drive is still good and you had not had any issues with it not reading disks then the filter settings may be your problem. Try this:

1) Close all open programs
2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter
Note: Vista doesnt come with the run command as a choice so just type REGEDIT in the search bar above Start..
3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders to open them.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
Class
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
(looks like same file name for XP and Visat?)

4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

UpperFilters
LowerFilters
UpperFilters.bak
LowerFilters.bak

5) If you see any of the above keys, right-click on each of them and choose Delete
6) Close the Registry Editor
7) Reboot your computer
8) Click Start
9) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drive shows now.
Open the device manager for your version of Windows and make sure the Rom Drive is showing and that it is not showing an exclamation mark. If you still do not see the Rom drive then your drive may be defective. Note: you migh have to reinstall some of your CD or DVD playing/burning software. Hope this helps... Dale

Cd/dvd combo drive won't read


The optical eye inside the drive can go out, and although it may appear to be working it isn't. Try a replacement.

DVD/CD combo only reads DVDs


The virus and the Disck drive problem are not related. The disk drive has two lasers- one for CD one for DVD- one of the appears to have failed. Get hold of a CD drive cleaner. - this is a disk with a little brush on the underside and a bottle of fluid. try thats first. If that does not work then it is a new drive- unless you are happy to read only DVD's
