Question about Computers & Internet
I've had this laptop for about 3 months and everything has been working fine, I could play DVDs and CDs on it. But now whenever I put a disk in, CD or DVD my laptop does not recognise that there is a disk in it.
This sounds like your dvd drive stopped working. try with different cds or dvds. If not there is a complicated way but if you are not familiar with computers don't do that. A service technician can easily solve it for you.

SOURCE: cd dvd drive only recognises cds
Just check if the region code has not been locked. If you cannot play DVD's at all, first clean the lens, then install a good DVD player like cyberlink etc and then try. If the issue is related to Data DVD's as well, change the media that you are using, eg change the media type to Samsung, Sony and check. Lemme know if it works.

1. Completely remove any dvd/cd player/burner softwares (i.e. Nero, Power DVD, etc.).
2. Go to device manager and remove your DVD/CD device from the device list
3. Restart you laptop
4. Windows will then try to reinstall the device drivers again for the DVD drive.
5. After another restart, then reinstall your dvd softwares again.

First step would be to try cleaning with a good quality dvd cleaner. Then see if drive detects. More than likely this problem is caused by a dirty laser lens or improper lens alignment. Cleaning should always be the first step in a problem you describe as 99% of the time it is the cure. Good luck.
