When I load a cd in my Stanton C324 it reads "No


Hello

Clean your CDs before and after playing them. Although the compact disc has a much longer lifespan than does something like a cassette tape, it can be more fragile. Scratches, dust or other damage to the data side of the CD will cause many CD players to fail to read the CD or cause the CD to skip.

Examine the type and format of the compact disc if your CD player fails to read it. Verify that your CD player can read the type of CD and the files contained on it. Just because you've burned a collection of songs to a CD, for example, doesn't mean that your CD player will be able to recognize that information. You must burn CDs in a specially formatted "Audio CD" mode to play them on a CD player, or your CD player must be able to recognize the MP3 file format. Some CD players have limitations on the type of CD they can read. Verify that your CD player can read CD-R, CD+R, CD-RW or CD+RW compact discs.

Update your CD player's driver, if your CD player is a drive connected to your computer. Click "Start" and select "Control Panel." Click on "Hardware and Sound" and select "Device Manager" under "Devices and Printers." Right-click the icon for your CD drive and select "Update driver software." This may solve any issues the drive was having with playing CDs.

Ejects cd from my dell inspiron 6400 and will not play or read


remove the CDROM (turn notebook around, remove the drive and reinsert after 1 minute.. perhaps it requires reseating.

if this fails, then accoding to Dell support Discs burned with this drive may not be compatible with some existing drives and players ; using DVD+R media provides maximum compatibility , if you have the 8x DVD/CD Burner (DVD+/-RW)

I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 laptop computer. I recently noticed that when I inserted a music CD into the drive, that it would not play or even recognize it in the My Computer window. I can still play DVDs...


The Cd player my be dirty, you can get disks you put in there to clean them. Also sometimes the players are just picky and don't like certain CD's..... I'll build brand new PC's that only read some CD right from the start.

Make sure your disks are clean to, with no fingerprints.

Optiarc dvd+-rw ad7580s can't read cd's only dvd's


Please use a lens cleaning kit to clean the lens inside the disc drive itself. The drive reads dvd's and cd's at different speeds so a dirty lens could read one but not the other.

Can play cd's but not dvd's, just a rythmic wirring sound and green activity light


Hey,

just looking at the specifications, it should work with All CD's and Read Normal DVD discs, the movies that you can rent and buy from any store but it appears its a combo drive (Cd burner, and a DvD reader) It will only read DVD-rom and maybe few other things but it wont play any r or rw dvd's. It might also read already burned dvd r and rw discs but it wont read a empty one.

if it won't read any dvd's it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.

may want to turn the volume down in advance:

its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.

let me know how that goes.
Thanks,
Ekse

Tray B of my RCA CD Burner does not recognize any CDs


Are you using the correct disc type??

The manual states that only discs that are labeled:

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Recordable" (Audio CDR)

*or*

"Compact Digital Audio Disc Rewritable" (Audio CD-RW) can be used.

The popular discs labeled "Compact Recordable" and Compact Disc "Rewritable" are for use in computers, and can NOT be used on the recorder.

Page 16 of the manual shows the graphic of the logos detailed above. The manual can be downloaded for free below:
