sometimes the dvd can be explored but the reader wont read it when its a certain kind of dvd... u may need to get a certain kind of program that can read that dvd... if u have up dated ur computer and didnt read anything about the up dates and what all the cause and effects are then that may have been one of them to boot ur dvd reader half way out. i have had this happen before and had to download a program that would read it....good luck and i hope this helps
Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, and install it.
Or, find another computer with a working CD-reader, and a USB port.
Find a USB memory-stick with about 600MB of "free" space.
On that computer, copy "everything" from the CD-ROM to a folder on the memory-stick.
Then, move the memory-stick to your computer, and install from that folder.
You will normally need the right software/program to view some formats, and I would recommend VLC media player as it does most and you can download it here for free: http://www.vlcmediaplayer.info/london3/
Your driver has become corrupted.
Go into device manager, and delete the drive.
Download the most recent driver from the manufacturers website to a location you can find on your PC.
Let windows recognize the new hardware, and point it to the file you just downloaded when it askes for driver.

Chek wtat is written on front panel
If it DVD-RW it can record only DVD-R blank, if it + so only +R
or DVD-RAM. If it is DVD +/- RW or RAM it can record any disk.
Also chek the speed for you DVD and disk you using.
If you dvd maximum speed for recording is for example 2.7, 4, 8 you should use only DVD with max speed 2.7, 4, 8 or 1-8, 1-16 etc. So they should be labeled the same as you DVD
