    Does your computer have a DVD burner, or just a DVD player?

    Are you referring to a particular dvd-r disc, or dvd-r discs in general?

    If this Is a particular disc, is it a blank dvd-r disc, or one that has been recorded on another computer or dvd burner?

I have a hp media center pc Model a1210n which recently has had a clean install to factory condition done by by son-in- law. Now the DVD does not read disc

DVD codecs are missing. You can download a codec pack for free and install. This should solve your prob. Older DVD rom drives did not come with onboard codecs. When you format and reinstall the registered codec can get cleaned away. Like baby out with the bathwater...............

Hp media center pc a1210n does not read disc

Try this.
Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install. Check BIOS by pressing F key (correct F key is noted during boot) and make sure BIOS see's the Optical Drive.

HP a1210n power LED on back flashes and unable to boot up computer. Recently installed memory upgrade and had to unplug 20+4 plug from motherboard and plug back in once the sink was charged up. Worked...

Try disconnecting the plug form the motherboard. If the LED stays lit, you may have a problem with something you touched inside. But, if the LED does not come on at all with nothing connected, the power supply is dead. 300W should be enough to run your computer, unless you have multiple graphics processors or too many peripherals, but just upgrading memory shouldn't make a difference. Make sure the memory is seated correctly, maybe try taking them out and putting back in, or check to see if maybe you loosened something inside while you were in there.

This indicates that you media (CD/DVD) cannot be read/is not recognised by your notebook drive: to make sure that you have a working drive, try inserting a know good CD/DVD. If this works, then you may have a compatibilty issue either because of the media used (eg. brand especially with Rewitable device) or the format of the data on your media (is your drive capable or reading both CD and DVD). You can assess the compatibility issue by using another computer/notebook to try to read your media.
Hope it helps: let me know how you go and good luck!

Will not recognize a blank cd or dvd inserted into the e drive. will read a data disc inserted into the same drive.

Are you using windows media player or roxio or any burning software?
You will need burning software for blank disc to be recognized.

Hope this helps.
