Sounds like a faulty drive, the best option because its the cheapest and simpleist option is to replace the drive.. there is only 4 screws and 2 cables involved so it really is a simple task. the dvd drives for desktops are extremely cheap too. if your wondering what type to buy just have a look inside the pc...if there i a big ribbon cable coming out the back of the dvd drive then you need an IDE drive, if there is a smell thin cable then you will need a SATA type dvd drive. thats about the only thing to check... hope this helps

Greeting I just bought "LG


Greetings... I think your having a problem with your hardware DVD R/W.
based on your observation...
1) The dvd rom drive is detected on your windows xp and by pushing open/close button still working... " this indicate that the power and SATA / IDE cable was properly connected.
2) And you've said "NOT SPINNING".... "means you have undergo testing by touching or listening DVDrom drive while the disk was inside after closing the disk tray which is right"

Therefore your DVDrom drive was defective... you can also check by opening the metal cover to see if the disk was spinning and if the laser of optical lens released a red light.

Hi there

Follow these steps and your dvd will be able to play discs from any region.

*With the player in stand-by mode (take out any discs and leave it alone for several minutes) press on the remote, in this order: TOP MENU, CLEAR, POWER.

*A menu will appear with several options. Choose Option 2 and then Option 4.

*Type 12450, press enter, then type 00000.
  • Step 4 After the tray opens and closes repeatedly (this is normal), unplug the unit, then plug it back in and turn it on.

    Opens and closes repeatedly


    hello,

    The most common reason for the player opening and closing itself is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

    store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

    This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your player, or issues inserting your games or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your player including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your player going again!
    Hope this helps...

    DVD Drive door will not always open. No obstructions. DVD Drive light flashes, but door will not open. Is ther some software conflict?


    The door drive motor may be frozen.
    1. Shut down the computer and unplug it.
    2. Open the computer casing to access the DVD drive from inside.
    3. Disconnect the cable on the DVD drive leaving only the power supply connected to it.
    4. Turn on the computer.
    5. Push the OPEN/CLOSE button on the DVD drive. If it does not open, the drive is broken or the door drive motor is defective. If it opens, push the button repeatedly to open and close the door repeatedly to release any frozen part.
    6. If the door does not stuck anymore, shut down the computer.
    7. Reconnect the cable and turn on the computer.

    CD/DVD drive stuck CLOSED and NO pin hole


    Use my computer and select the drive (eg drive E:). From pull down menu "File" select "eject". While the disk door attempts to open (hear slight movement of tray) massage the door with your fingers. This is done by smoothing out the across front door panel with your finger tips and pushing in and releasing pressure from door. Door should slide open partially and close again. Repeat. The eject button nearside the disc tray doesn't seem to work as well as selecting "File" and "Eject" from the menu. Something to do with the door cycle is less with the direct eject button.

    Cannor Read DVDs


    I have a similar issue to you, except that my dvd drive will only recognize a disc if I have booted up into windows with it in the tray...once in windows it will still think it has the first disc in no matter what disc i insert. If i boot up with no disc then it will never read it unless I follow the steps below.

    A solution I found by pure frustration and trying all sorts of things is to eject the DVD tray and leave it opened, then right click on the dvd drive in 'my computer' and select the 'hardware' tab...then select the drive and click 'properties'.
    A new window should open. Select 'volumes' and click 'populate'. Now close the window and insert the disc you wish to read, close the tray and repeat this process. Windows should now recognize the disc you inserted

    Alot of trouble I know, but it works for me. Hope this helps.
