See AutoPlay options in Control Panel if it is set to 'Run or Install Program' for a game or software. Or you can double-click the CD in My Computer (or 'Computer' in Vista).

If it doesn't show up in Computer, then it is not detecting them. If it is so, then it shouldn't even detect a DVD. But it is doing.

If this seems like a persistent problem, then show the computer to an authorised doctor.

Toshiba satellite l655d-s5093 d: drive issue


Buy a drive cleaning CD/DVD, those from dollar store may also work, clean the drive a few times and it should read CD/DVD.
Alternatively look at the Toshiba support drivers fro firmware update to your specific drive. Make sure you get all the recommended and critical Toshiba updates.

Why won't my acer 3100 accept a dvd-r


Either
* your "optical" device can only read CDs, not DVDs;
* it should read DVDs, but something is "dead", and the device is not performing as it should
* you need to install software to "play" a DVD-movie.

Define "will not accept" -- can you hear the drive spin the disc?
Does any program "auto-start" on your computer, when a DVD disk is inserted?

My disk drive is not working i am trying to down load a new program and when i put the disk in it will read it and then error appears


Hi saratrought, if Windows XP runs and you have read problems in CD/DVD drive try to read another disk, if any other disk work fine then you need to copy your CD/DVD info (or program) in another new disk.

Or just use Windows Explorer to try copy all data from CD/DVD disk to a New Folder in your Hard Drive and then from that location you can try to install your program, if your data don´t copy well then again i tell you that it´s your disk not your CD/DVD drive.

Sorry by bad english.

No read blu ray disk


Look to see if your system came with a blu-ray dvd player. Cause according to the specs to your sysem it comes with a dvd+-rw drive which means it can play original dvds as well as movies on a dvd+r and dvd-r. Look for the blu-ray logo on the front of your drive. It should look like this:
http://www.pacificdisc.com/images/bd44.png

If it doesn't have that logo then that means your drive can't play blu-ray. If it does have the blu-ray logo and its not playing those discs then you need either a software program that will play blu-ray or your blu-ray dvd player has a weak laser and the drive would nee to be replaced.

My DVD not reading DVD movie CD


Is it not reading the disk or not playing DVD movies? If you put a DVD data disk and it reads, then the drive is fine. If it just wont play movies, youre missing a DVD decoder (such as PowerDVD). Try testing other DVD disks and post your findings.

For my dvd rom region


Region Code is concidered when you play any DVD movie directly from the Drive.

Like you insert any Video DVD in the Drive and right click on it and play directly where the Region Code comes into Picture.

You will be able to change the video code 4 times to use Video DVDs of different regions. However, the fifth time, what ever the DVD you use, the Drive will be locked to that region.

We need to check whether your Notebook is able to detected the DVD Drive or not.

Follow the steps listed below to check it :

Insert any DVD which you used earlier like a Data Disk or Video Disk in the DVD Drive of the Notebook and close the tray.

Now, go to My Computer and right click on the DVD Drive of the Notebook and select Open or Explore.

If you are able to see the content of the DVD / CD, the Notebook is able to detect DVDs.

I recommend you to copy the video files in the DVD into the Hard Drive and play them since this will reduce the noise generated by the DVD Drive while playing video from DVD and also its life time will be increased.

You need to copy the Video_ts folder which contains the video files in Video DVDs.

Hope this helps.

CD/DVD Drive


Make sure that DMA is checked for the dvd player.

 

What program are you using to read (play) the DVD?

If you are using Windows media Player and Nero 6 you need to:

 

Go to

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Ahead\DSFilter\NeAudio.ax and NeVideo.ax
Don't delete these files!
For safety reason create New folder and move files in it.

 

Try this and let us know . Thanks
