Dell Inspiron 530 running on MSVista, for some reason plays cd's but will not "see" any dvd, even if dvd is in the drive, it is still asking for a disc to be put in, as if there was nothing in there.

Hi my dell inspiron 530 computer recently can't play disc ,so like most people i checked for solutions for this problem ,non of them worked which got me furious until i found out that my Region fo


To change the Region code on your DVD player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVDs from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software (Passkey for DVD) that allows you to play DVDs from any region and Passkey for Blu-ray that allows you to play Blu-rays from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free From: -

I formatted the harddrive of a Dell Inspirion 530. It says BOOTMGR missing on the main screen so I put in the VISTA OS disc and it won't read it, and acts like it's not even in the computer.

Hi, go to the above dell website and go to page 192.
It sounds like to me you need to change the boot order in your bios. Follow this instructions and put your cd/dvd drive at the top of the list, then it should run the vista install disk.
Hope this helps

My dvd drive on my inspiron does not work makes clunk clunk clunk noises ,will not play dvd,how do i sort it


Try cleaning it using a CD cleaning kit... If that fails to work - replace the drive. Repairing will cost as much as a new drive!

My Dell Inspiron 530 CD-RW will not open and is not even listed in the device manager or on the drive


Hello,

Sounds like the power cable isn't in the drive properly or the cable from your power source to the CD-ROM is defective.

Thanks,

Pat

Faulty system restore


If you are refering to the DELL system restore on the hard drive you will have to contact DELL and have them ship you the recovery discs for your system. Once you have the recovery discs, insert them in your drive and boot the computer from the CD/DVD to attempt the recovery.

Dell Inspiron 530 CDRW/DVD problems


Are you a smoker? Its possible that a good bit of cigarette smoke buildup has accumulated on the CD burner's internal laser lens. One of those cheap CD cleaner disks might work to clean the laser lens, but usually one would have to open up the CD drive and carefully clean the lens using ear swabs moistened with isopropyl alcohol.
