Lol. not too much info to go on there....

1) is the disk disgustingly filthy?

2) is the drive clogged with a pb&j sandwich?

3) is it a dvd drive...probably is.

4) double check that the computer can read other disks besides that one, and if not there may be a more serious problem.

solutions:

try running a disk cleaner in the drive, its a cd with a little brush on it for sweeping dust off the lens

buy a 3-4 dollar can of compressed air and spray a bit of that inside to clean out the dust and stuff, MAKING SURE TO FOLLOW ALL INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY as cans of compressed air can mess stuff up real easily if used wrong.

good luck!

Dell XPS 410 DVD rom will read cds but not dvds


Try to uninstall and then reinstall the driver for the DVD rom. Also, make sure you have a DVD application software that you can use to play those DVDs; like Realplayer.

Dell XPS 1300 Cd rom problem


This is a CD drive mechanical problem. All CD/DVD drives have built in error checking for mechanical failures. When you insert the CD/DVD, it tries to grab and seat the disc, then attempts to spin it up and then read it. If the grab and seat function fails for any reason, the drive will eject the tray so you can try again. You should contact Dell support and get the drive replaced. Has the drive ever worked? or did it just stop working one day?

Dell Cd/Dvd burner not working properly


I have a Dell XPS 400 that's about 3 years old. I have a DVD reader and a DVD-RW device. The former works - the latter takes forever to read discs (particularly DVD data discs.)

I'm starting to think some of the generic DVD-RW devices Dell uses in its computers are prone to early failure. The DVD-RW in my XPS-400 was called "HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H21N".

I'm going to try cleaning it, and then just swap it out for a better device.
