That means defective lens.

Try first using a dvd lens cleaner. If that does not work, the DVD must be taken apart to access the lens pickup directly and cleaning it with isopropyl alcohol and cotton.

It will not play Verbatim DVD-R disc that I burnt on my computer.


If it can read any other disk, you should burn your disk again because burning process was incorrect. your computer can't recognize the disk. In this case, probably you can't do anything, no way to try to read a bad disk if computer can't even "see" it.
By the way, you should test to read the disk on some other computer.
If happens with ALL your disks, your optical player is defective.
Again test reading with other computer if record was made correctly
As for your device, you should check if worth to repair and decide if repair or replace it.

It just might be a problem with the laser carriage motor that moves the laser assy back and forth to read from the inner portion of the disc to the outer portion. If it can't move from the reference position, it won't read anything more than the initial data on any disc. Hope this helps. Good luck!

Dvd drive not reading a disc


If this happens with every disc, then your drive needs fixing/cleaning or replacement. If it only happens with a specific disc such as your game, then something's wrong with the disc. If it's a homemade DVD you may be dealing with copy protection. Try cleaning the disc and the player. Try the disc in another computer.

I can not be abel to read writed CD


These discs that are written on other systems, were they finalized or are they multi-sessions discs that have been left open? Some drives have difficulty dealing with multi-session discs created by other drives. By telling it it is OK to format the CD, it is writing a new TOC (Table of Contents) that is blank since it did not see anything on the disc previously (so it didn't know there was anything to carry over from previous sessions). Now all other drives that try to read this disc are now reading an empty TOC and figure it is a blank CD.

You can try writing a disc on another computer and making sure it finalizes it, then try reading it with your laptop. You can also try to burn data to a CD on your laptop making sure the disc is finalized and try to read it on another computer to verify these suspicions.

Maybe your cd cannot be read anymore by your CD drive.
be sure that the cd is cleaned and no crack traces on it.
Please try another a very new CD/DVD to see if the CD drive can read.

if read then, your cd is damage. but there is some CD drive that cannot read some cd disc. You should select maybe the cd rom compatibility.
