Re: how to find out cd drive is writer or not
To find out if your cd rom is a writable drive, go to My Computer, and listed there will be your CD ROM drive, sometimes called letter D:\ right click on that drive and scroll down to the properties option and click that on. Under propoerties, if you see a tab on the top called Recording, then it's a read/write drive. If you don't see a tab called Recording, then it's either not a read/write, or the wrong drivers have been installed for it. If the wrong drivers were installed, you will need to go to the website of the manufacturer and download the correct one. Typically your safe to say if it works at all to read cd's, then the driver is installed correctly.

your dvd drive has become faulty...it lost the potential to read DVD...but still it will read all kinds of CDs....try cleaning the dvd lens once using lens cleaner.... if it still does not read then you need to buy a new dvd writer... it is not recommended to repair the old one.... it will not work good even after servicing,it may work for one or two times again it will not work.... new dvd writer for desktop computer will cost around 1100rupees.... for laptops you it will cost even more.... its better to buy an external dvd drives in that case for laptops....
