The dvd player in my laptop isn't reading discs


No disk drive will read blank disks. Try downloading a free DVD player to see DVD's on it or a codec pack (available free)

Not reading DVD discs


Hello,

has it been reading DVD discs before? Also, does it read other discs apart from DVD's?

It is possible that your DVD drive's lens (laser) is weak. You can try to use a lens cleaner or cutton board to clean the lens.

Take care.

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.

Disc drive wont work


It sounds like the laser may have went out. When reading a disc the laser moves up and down as well as back and forth. It sounds like it is reading from the wrong position if it's reading at all. Remove any disc from the drive. Go into the device manager and remove/uninstall the drive from the list. Reboot the computer, wait until the hardware wizard reinstalls it and then try reading another disc. If this doesn't help then most likely the laser has went bad. It is not an uncommon problem. You can also see if there is a firmware update for your drive from the maufacturers website or your PC speciffic website. Hope this helps.

Disc Drive


two things to do.

1. Go to your system manager, then hardware option. If you can 'see' that drive(listed under DVD/CD) then it's mechanically ok.

2. Drivers for these can be abrupted quite a bit, easily. Check for drivers at support.toshiba.com
