Question about Sony (DDU1612) Internal DVD Drive

1 Answer

My computer won't recognize my Sony DVD-Rom DDU1612.

I have a Sony DVD-Rom DDU1612 dvd drive and i recently tried to watch a movie on it but when I put the disk into the drive nothing happened. So i went to the control panel and clicked the system icon and went to the hardware tab an clicked on the device manager and scrolled down to the DVD/CD-ROM tab and it showed my cd rom and dvd but there was an X through the dvd-rom. So i was i hoping that some one could help me get this fixed. My operating system is Windows XP Home edition and the movie i was watching, i don't think this matters but still, was The Simpsons Movie.

Hi.

I think you have to set the jumpers on youre drive.
there are 2 plugs on the IDE-cable to connect 2 drives. they are
MASTER (at the end of cable) and SLAVE (the middle one)
so you have to set youre drive to Master or Slave with the jumpers on its backside. if only 1 drive is connected then its allways MASTER.

Hope could help you.
Regrets Gue.

SOURCE: why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk

If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

Perform an observation of the computer devices disk location compartments. For example, computers would provide logo indication of what media disk is displayed on the location drive. In situation that the computer disk area has CD rom, DVD rom, or CDRW or DVDRW is indication that movie disks with mentioned logos is displayable at insertion.

Does not recognize DVDs, computer


Hi there,
I would like to suggest that you attempt to download & install the codecs that your media player requires, before it will play a DVD.
I found this typical when I was using the Vista operating system with Windows Media Player 11.
The codecs can be found as freeware online & a good site for the apt codecs for WMP 11 is @ www.majorgeeks.com once you are on the site, click multimedia on the left of the page, then scroll down to the codecs required.
The K-Lite series of codecs seem to work well with WMP 11 on Vista.
I truly hope that this has resolved your problem, as there is nothing better than watching a fine movie on the old PC.
Failing my advice, you could always 'Rip' the said movie to your media player & view it from your hard drive.
Good luck anyway.
Warmest regards,
Ste

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.
