    IThank you. Where do you get a cleaning disk? Also, it doesn't reconize any disk that is inserted, like the driver isn't there. So I doubt it will load a cleaning disk. Any other suggestions?

  • Super Mom2 Jan 08, 2009

    Great. I will try this!

  • Super Mom2 Jan 09, 2009

    I needed to contact HP and they had me uninstall the driver and reinstall it. I will keep it clean though thanks to your advice!

    Cheers.

    They are available just about anywhere you can buy CD DVD discs

    If the eye is dirty .. that is a possible "response" .. not recognizing a disc being inserted

    What happened after the cleaning?

  • Jay Glendenning
    Jay Glendenning Jan 09, 2009

    That would have been the next step .. but as a "tech" and when someone says its not working/reading .. we try to make sure that we eliminate "environmental"issues.



    Thanks for the rating ... Hope to be of help to you again .. if you ever need it ..

L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc


You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.

I HAVE A IBM THINKPAD T 30


Thinkpad T30 are usually supplied with the following optical drives, CD ROM, CD R/W, and Combo DVD ROM with CD R/W.
You most likely have the Combo drive, therefore you can play DVD and CD disks plus burning music and data onto CD-R and CD+R discs.
You need CD burning software such as Roxio Easy CD Creator or Nero. Both these programs are excellent and easy to use.

DVD-RW IBM A31 Thinkpad problem


I take it you are trying to "send to" files to the DVD-RW?You can't burn a DVD just with windows XP . It only supports CDRW drives.

Get commercial software like Roxio or Nero, or download a free CD burning program like this one:

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck

DVD/CD combo only reads DVDs


The virus and the Disck drive problem are not related. The disk drive has two lasers- one for CD one for DVD- one of the appears to have failed. Get hold of a CD drive cleaner. - this is a disk with a little brush on the underside and a bottle of fluid. try thats first. If that does not work then it is a new drive- unless you are happy to read only DVD's
