DVD Burner popping up as ''CD Player'' Wonder if any of you have come across this issue before (and it is veryserious, i have two new games to play!!!). Have an LG DVD Burner, gotSoulstorm for Christmas and while installing it, got a CRC error. Triedagain and it worked, worked again on Sunday. Bought Forged Allianceyesterday, went to install it, put disc in, no activity from the burnerat all. Checked Explorer, just shows up as DVD-RAM Drive or words to that effect. Click on it and it replaces it with CD Playerbut again, no activity from the drive. Shut down an restarted a fewtimes, same result. Tried my Soulstorm disc, same result. Shut it downand went to bed. Tried it again this morning before heading to work,same result. Tried FA at work, reads fine. Had no time to do any ultraindepth checks etc but thought i'd pop the q out there (while i waitfor the server to ask for the next disc) in case others have comeacross it. Cheers

    Will the drive read any other games that you installed prior to the Christmas ones?

You need to check in the bios what does it recognized as CD or DVD. The cable which is attached to your DVD drive is installed at proper place on motherboard. May be your motherboard is old doesn't recognize DVD drives. Update your bios and driver for the dvd player. All the best.

I came across this a few yars back, but i cant for the life of me think how i solved it, i think you have to right click on the drive in my compuer, click properties, and on the recording tab make sure the first checkbox is checked.

I also had this problem on an LG drive.

My burner will not burn cd's anymore. It still plays cd's fine as well as play and burn dvd's fine. I see no errors in hardware setup. It is a nec dvd +- RW ND 6650A that came with my Dell Inspiron E1705.


The CD Burner / Player / DVD Burner are all different heads. If the Dell Inspiron E1705 is an older model it is most likely you have reached the end of it's usable life for the CD burner part. If it is new the CD burner is most likely defective and hopefully warrantied. Otherwise these CD/DVD units can be replaced relatively inexpensively (as compared to buying a new laptop).

The Rimage 2000i recorder leaves streak marks on the underside of the disc where the information is recorded; thus when attempting to playback the DVD, the player cannot read it.


Hello pwilford,

The most common cause for this issue is dirt and dust build up on the pivot tray. The pivot tray is the plastic piece the disc slides across when it is done printing. Clean this really well with some Formula 409 and it should "clean up" your issue.

My RD-XS32 will not read dvd's when i put them in the dvd player. It gives me the message that it cant read the disk, to check it for cleaning or damage.


I have the same problem. Initially it was intermitent, but then it started to get progressivly worst to the point that the dvr no longer recognizes blank disks for recording.

I wonder if someone had experience replacing the dvd burner with another, would it be compatible enough for the dvr to continue working properly (I know it is an older sony dvd burner. Worst case I dump $40 and then put the new burner on my PC instead)

Disc stuck in dvd drive. tries to spin. won't eject. (emachines desktop with xp home


There is a small pin hole below the tray. Straighten a paper clip and gently push it in this hole. The tray will unlock and pop out slightly, then pull the tray out and remove the DVD disc.

Mac Power Book G4 - Won't accept ANY Media in Cd / DVD


Yes, your burner is toast. Go order you a new one, open this puppy up, and install it. No need to worry about voiding the warranty, cause your warranty has long expired on this old beast. If your hands are unsteady or your tech skills a bit rusty, then pay someone to do it.
