DVD DOES NOT PLAY, BRAND NEW FROM BEST BUY ACER EXTENSA LAPTOP EX5230E-2177 WILL NOT BURN A DVD OR PLAY A MOVIE


first make sure that the drive is installed properly. I would advise you to install it from the manufacturer's site. Let me know if you need the installation files.

Also, it can help if you can let me know if it reads any other discs- like regular discs. Try several different types- burned cd and dvd discs, brand new discs, original discs etc.
If installing it doesn't help and the drive will not read any kinds of discs, you will have to return the laptop to the store where you bought it, or try to return it to the manufacturer, maybe they can replace the drive.

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

I have a Medion MD8830. Although I have good sound for music through Creative MediaSource and Soundblaster - cannot get anzy sound from the DVD player when playing DVD's. Do I need to download another...


Do you have seperate DVD and CD drives?
Can you get sound when you play a CD on the CD drive?
If you answer yes to both of these questions, this might be your answer.

This applies to IDE drives, not to the new SATA.
In order for the sound to get from the player there is a cable that connects the drive to your sound card. This cable is probably connected to the CD. Move it to the DVD drive since the DVD drive will also play CDs.

My drive plays DVD's but will not read CD-ROM ? it did at one time is this a setting error


DVD and CD require different spec lasers (DVD requires 1.3nm compared to 2.1nm for CD)

It seems like your CD laser is broken, although your DVD laser still works. Replace the drive, it's not too expensive.

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.
