Question about NEC DV-5700A Internal DVD Drive

Dvd/cd drive fault

Hi there. I have a problem with my dvd/cd drive or maybe it's some sort of clash in my extensions. When playing a dvd or cd on my pc the sound is cracked, almost like there's interference or a loose wire in my speaker system. The dvd playback also jumps slightly. The drive still works fine when ripping cd's onto the pc and when installing software. Also the sound is fine when listening to cd's that I've already up-loaded so the speaker system is fine. The pc did have a warranty and I fixed the problem once before by doing a 'system restore' though the problem returned. Since then my pc supplier have gone bust so I can't contact them again! I don't want to keep doing 'system restores' as I had a problem the last time I performed one and had to re-format my hard drive! I don't want to do that again as I have a lot of stuff stored on my pc now. I noticed that the crackling sound / jumping images may have started when I was watching a video on u-tube and put a cd in the drive at the same time. The sounds seem to clash. I hope you may be able to suggest a simple way to fix this problem. Cheers . Ray

Firstly, i doubt it's the cd drive, but to be sure and start a fresh with it, go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again and install the drivers. Secondly click Start>Run then type 'dxdiag' and hit enter, this will bring up a diagnostics programme for sound and video drivers. run the test on both to see if there are any driver conflicts.

First test your CPU then tast all leads that are attached to your hard drive sounds like a faulty lead of some sorts then
try replacing all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ?

I'm trying to install a PC-DVD Game to my LG CD-ROM CRD-8521B, It plays CD's but wont play DVD's of any sort. Really need help...


The CD rom is limited to CD's. In order to read a DVD, you will need to install a DVD rom. My suggestion is to get an external DVD Burner - i just bought a Samsung slim external DVD burner that reads / writes CD's and DVD's.
You will have no luck ever reading a dvd in a cd rom.

Cant play movies from my toshibia laptop


Hi:
There are several reasons why a movie won't play, so I will run a few suggestions by you:

Hopefully ;you have a DVD drive or a DVD RW drive ?

If you insert a DVD or CD into the drive, your computer should recognize that a disk is inserted. If not the drive might be bad

You must have some sort of Software installed to make movies play, such as WinDVD, or PowerDVD

No DVD sound with my LG GP08 Super Multi Drive


Hello, Phil,
I have the same problem on an Asus EEE Pc... Is your Toshiba running Windows 7? This is maybe the reason, because external drive is not compatible with this OS. That's what I heard from LG...
The drive works perfect on my Asus laptop with XP!
Please keep me informed if you solve this problem.
Regards,
Andre

There may have been a Windows update that corruptdated one of your Windows Media Player files. Check for spyware or a virus. WMP is usually an avenue for thay sort of thing. Check for updats to all software involved. You may also consider doing a firmware update if they have one. Good Luck, Tim
