SOURCE: cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.

SOURCE: Sony CRX300E CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo - DVD doesn't read

Hi,
do you have software/program that supports DVD.
Try a different DVD/Movie/Disk or alternative.
Also install a program, such as Nero which will give you physical characteristics of the drive.
Finally go to device manager, and remove or uninstall the device, reboot the computer and setup again. This can sometimes remedy the problem.
ensure that the drive is set as Master/Slave. if on the same Bus/IDE channel as a hard-drive. set as master/slave opposite to what the hard-drive is setup as.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

You need atleast a DVD-ROM drive. You can get a drive that burns DVD+r,-r,+rw,-rw. Either will be fine to play dvds. You can try newegg.com,tigerdirect.com,directron.com,geeks.com.

Your Lense has some issue.
You can clean your lense with disk cleaner disk.
Pur chase it from nearest shop it is called "Lense cleaner disk"
then put it into combo drive then play it then it clean your lense then check .
If still not access your dvd then if it is in warrenty go to service shop they replaced it.
And if it is not in warrenty then you should need to repair your lense or purchase new lense.

I purchased a CD-Rom advertised on Amazon as compatible with Asuseeepc and I wanted it for use with the DVD support disc. It works fine with cds but does not recognize dvds when inserted. I have been


A CD-Rom will only recognize CD's. It must be a DVD-ROM to recognize DVD's. DVD-ROM will recognize CD's ,but not the other way around. No drivers needed for thes, they are plug and play.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

Decoder missing, can't play dvd


Your DVD drive should have included a dvd playing software, such as WinDVD or PowerDVD. If it didn't, you may need to purchase one of these or install the Elecard DVD Codec for free. This link may work:
