    Need external player for that solution? Don;t have one. The problem is something to do with how the built in burner reads cds and dvds

  • shahelen Dec 17, 2008

    Tried cleaning the lens aready. That did't work.The laptop is only a month old so I really shouldn't have to purchase an external DVD drive.The problem I have, if I send it back to the dealer who is located on the other side of the country, they said being Christmas period I probably won't get it back until February. I need to try all options myself first.

The only problem is that you need a music and video software that is working, try the following software packages, by installing and testing them.


First update media player: Windows Media Player 10 or Windows Media Player 11

Then try Winamp: Official WinAmp Site

If those did nto work , try VLC,

If your built in cd or dvd rom cant read a disc you must clean it with cd cleaner. this procedure will make your cd/dvd rom play a disc again. if still the problem persist then you should buy an External dvd rom burner for your laptop so that it will work again. the built-in cd/dvd rom will not work unless you will send it to repair service. That is just a common problem of some laptop. External Dvd Rom BURNER is the second option. hope that helps!

thank you for using fixya

    if that is new one then it should have no technical or physical problem on your dvd rom. try by reformatting the system to become fresh again and be sure you install the driver for you laptop. lets assume that you use it for the first time.



    happy holiday!

My samsung dvd player will not play dvds, but it


Are you trying to playing recordable DVDs (DVD+R or DVD-R) ? if so, try playing original DVDs (the type you rent or buy) those are pressed DVDs - if it works, then your player does not support DVD-R or DVD+R - If you are using a computer burner that supports bitsetting you can change the booktype of a DVD+R to DVD-ROM to fool your player.

If however your player cannot play either DVD-R, DVD+R nor original DVDs and only plays CDs, then your dvd laser diode is finished - there is one for CD and one for DVD, this is rare but happens, there is nothing you can do, any repairs would be very expensive - you are better off getting a new DVD player they are very inexpensive now and any repairs will cost you multiple times a new DVD player.

Plays cds but not dvds


If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

Dvd player only plays some movies


it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
Good Luck

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds


Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...
