Possibly, the lens is the Crystal ball looking thing in the DVD drawer, if it looks out of place, or has dirt on it, it can be adjusted Carefully.

Otherwise, it is better to replace it.

I have the hp inspiron 531s.Can i burn cd or dvd??


Yes your computer has a DVD writer... It should have the software to burn DVDs and CDs


The Dell Inspiron 531 is a desktop personal computer with a Microsoft Windows operating system. An Inspiron equipped with a CD burner can be used to record audio discs using Windows Media Player, which comes installed on the Inspiron as a standard part of the software package Dell loads onto its computers. Blank, recordable discs and pre-recorded audio CDs are the only supplies needed for the project.

Dvd works in Power DVD program but cds (music) not working?


Make sure the DVD/CD rom has the latest drivers from Dell.com and that all of the updates have been installed for windows.

I've found that when using Windows 7 32 bit, that the windows drivers work fine for CDs on my Acer Aspire laptop.

Maybe try another program for the CD playing, downloadable from the Internet.

Maybe try to use a cd-rom lens cleaner if the lens seems to be dusty or dirty.

Good luck on this repair.

Can i burn the mini cd's/dvd's in my inspiron 1525?


Yes you can, your Notebook has a Dvd Writer with it, mini or normal dvds/cds will burn well without any problem if the Cd/Dvd Drive has no issues reading/writing Cds/Dvds.

Good luck.

My dell laptop inspiron 1525 wont play dvd's, but it will play cd's.. i have windows vista


Two things to check: First, look on the tray edge - does it say DVD and CD, or just CD? If it does not say DVD,it will not play them. The second thing is you may not have software to play a DVD. Usually Windows will use media player, assuming you have a dvd player. You can also open "my computer" and the drive will show up as a DVD or just CD.

I have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop and my cd/dvd drive has been corrupted and is missing and now i cant play movies or cds and it happened two months ago wat do i do


The CD, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-RW, Blu-Ray and any other drive that uses a laser to read data from a CD. In general, most optical drive problems can be resolved by:
  • Updating the optical drive firmware
  • Updating the burning software
  • Updating the DVD playback software
  • Updating the computer's video driver in cases of video playback issues
  • Updating the computer's audio driver in cases of audio playback issues
To download the Firmware of your machine click here. i have selected the default 1525 but if you click on enter the service tag, it will give you your computer's firmware. or you can check it in device manager as well.
you can also try deleting the upper and lower filters. in regedit.

in vista. click on start /type regedit in start search.
then continue the action and then click on the +HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / + SYSTEM / +CURRENT CONTROLSET / +CONTROL /+ CLASS /+ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and on the right side look for upper filters or lower filters and delete them. and then restart the computer. it should fix this.

in case the issue is not resolved. you might need to get the optical drive replaced.

if this information was helpful. please rate the solution.
