CD-DVD drive- recently only plays CD's and DVD's burned at 2x

Recently my CD-DVD drive (F) only plays DVD's that I burned at 2x and no longer recognizes other DVD's in the drive. Since I got the PC I have always been aple to use both drives, (F) being the player and and (E) as the burner.
Is my player dying a 'slow" death or can I still do something to restore it?

I cannot play or burn cd/dvd


Go into my computer to check it is there, if yes! go into device manager to see if it's listed. If everything is in place you may have a defective DVD drive unit. If you feel it works you can attempt a system restore and bring the computer back to an earlier time before this happened.

The DVD/CD drive on my Medion 8830 PC no longer burns


Have you changed or upgraded your OS recently?
Looks like the drivers are corrupt or out-dated.
Might go to your computer mfg support site or the Drive mfg support site and download the latest drivers.
Uninstall whatever drivers are loaded reboot and reinstall fresh copies.

CD's won't play on Home & Car stereo after Burning


I may add alot of times older equipment has a hard time reading burned cd's because when ever burning cd's the pits that are burnt into the cd are shallow. The faster the cd burns the more shallow it is... one thing you can try to do is burn at 2x in the WAV format cause it most diffenately will not read mp3 format being that old equipment. You may get lucky burning at 2x because the pits that it burns in the cdrom will be deeper. As the clarification said do use CD-R's. If this doesn't work at 2x chances are that equipment is just not going to be able to read a burnt cd period. Good Luck!!! I hope this works for you!!!

It may be how you are burning these discs, if you burn it as a data disc you will only be able to read them with a computer dvd drive, if burnt as video it should work on any dvd drive.

Doesn't burn CD's


Try to burn a DVD -- each "blank" DVD costs about $0.30, so it would be a "worthwhile" experiment.

Try pulling the DVD drive, and trying it in some other computer, just to see if there is a software (including virus) issue on your computer.

Or, spend $40 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.

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.
