SOURCE: Optiarc 7640A scratchs disc

It's time to replace that cd drive. Trying to repair a cd/dvd drive that is bad would cost more than getting a new one.

Dell XPS M1530 has a Blu-Ray drive but can't watch BR discs. Computer does not recognize BR discs. installed Power DVD 9 and still doesn't recognize BR discs. It says that I don't have a CD player.


you need to check that you have the codec for BR video, if you goto http://www.free-codecs.com/ and download the XP codec pack (even if you have vista), install it and then run the DrWatson codec utility, it will list all the codecs installed on your PC. you can also download all the latest codecs from the site.

Sony NEC OptiArc can't read but can write!!!


Try to play the cd that you have wrote with other machine if it was able to read with other machine then your dvd is faulty.

If it cannot play with other machine, then there is a problem with the software that you use in cd writing or the dvd rom drive. Try to re-install both drivers, then play a cds.

Optiarc DVD RW AD-7640A stopped recognizing CD. Have tried a variety of brands of blank CDs, professionally recorded CDs, etc. It takes the CD and there are some internal "noises" like it is trying, but...


It happens, try to clean the drive, if that fails then chalk it up to a bad drive. Cheapest way is use pricewatch or any other similar site and order a replacement drive.

Just trying to save you a headache! They are not worth trying to prepare or fix, cheap enough to just replace.

Dell Cd/Dvd burner not working properly


I have a Dell XPS 400 that's about 3 years old. I have a DVD reader and a DVD-RW device. The former works - the latter takes forever to read discs (particularly DVD data discs.)

I'm starting to think some of the generic DVD-RW devices Dell uses in its computers are prone to early failure. The DVD-RW in my XPS-400 was called "HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H21N".

I'm going to try cleaning it, and then just swap it out for a better device.
