Question about Dell Inspiron 1525 Notebook

Poor DVD drive audio Dell Inspiron

My Inspiron 1525 DVD player worked great, then in mid movie, I tried to turn on closed captions. Dell's MediaDirect program crashed. When I rebooted, I had really poor audio(crackly) and a bit of video skipping. I have discovered that CD now have the same audio problem. This happens for disks played in WMP, Real Player, or RoxioMP. Audio and video from non-disk(DVD & CD) sources(net, flash drive, etc.) play fine. Hardware profile says the DVD driver is fine...
What's up?
Thanks

    Thanks Ace! I reinstalled the audio driver and flashed the DVD firmware. All is well. Now, back to Stargate!

    I have the same problem. Installed drivers from Dell website but no success. Where can I find the DVD flash?
    Thanks.

I just put a new 9 cell battery, two new 2GB ram cards & a new, blank hard drive in our Dell Inspiron 1525. But the screen does not seem to work when I turn it on, or after I put in an installation...


Remove the battery, and connect the AC power. Then, try to start it.

Disconnect the AC power, and remove the "new" disk-drive.
Then, connect the AC power, and try to start it.

Disconnect the AC power. Remove the "new" RAM, and put the "old" RAM back in.
Then, connect the AC power, and try to start it.

If it does start, add the "new" disk-drive, and try again.

If it does start, add the "new" RAM, and try again.

I am trying to finalize a DVD-R after burning a movie. I can't find "close" or "finalize" anywhere. The DVD-R movie is burned but wont play on my Sony DVD player.


Have you tried "right-click" and clicking on 'eject' to have the DVD finalized? What program are you using to burn the DVD?

I have a problem with the dvd disk drive on a dell inspiron 1525


Always be sure to close any open programs you do not need to run at that particular time. Also, close your internet connection. The reason for this is to allow the maximum amount of memory to be used by your media software.. Try this. It should work, ok? GOOD LUCK!! Lucky4lynn2

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop and my cd/dvd drive has been corrupted and is missing and now i cant play movies or cds and it happened two months ago wat do i do


The CD, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-RW, Blu-Ray and any other drive that uses a laser to read data from a CD. In general, most optical drive problems can be resolved by:
  • Updating the optical drive firmware
  • Updating the burning software
  • Updating the DVD playback software
  • Updating the computer's video driver in cases of video playback issues
  • Updating the computer's audio driver in cases of audio playback issues
To download the Firmware of your machine click here. i have selected the default 1525 but if you click on enter the service tag, it will give you your computer's firmware. or you can check it in device manager as well.
you can also try deleting the upper and lower filters. in regedit.

in vista. click on start /type regedit in start search.
then continue the action and then click on the +HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / + SYSTEM / +CURRENT CONTROLSET / +CONTROL /+ CLASS /+ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and on the right side look for upper filters or lower filters and delete them. and then restart the computer. it should fix this.

in case the issue is not resolved. you might need to get the optical drive replaced.

if this information was helpful. please rate the solution.

DVD-RW Not recognized in Dell Inspiron 1525


Turn off your laptop, take the dvd-rw drive out of the laptop and then reseat it back into the slot so it snaps into place. Turn the laptop back on and make sure its recognized in My computer.

If it is reocognized then try to burn again and see what happens. If it still gives you the same message, see if your drive will read regular dvd movies. If it doesn't then that means the laser is going bad and the drive will need to be replaced.

Dvd player won't open


Start the system and keep tapping the F2 key when you see the Blue Dell logo. Once you are on the BIOS screen, try to eject the drive - if the drive does not work here > your drive needs a replacement. For the broken plastic panel, you can stick it with a quick stick glue if the drive ejects.

Closed Captions won't work


make sure your dvd player has the capability to display closed captions, as not all of them do, also if it does have the capabilities, it may need a scart connection.
