My Dell P380 only reads cds in the dvd player?

I recently bought a Dell P 380 on e-bay, and it only reads cds in the dvd player. I have all of the latest drivers, and I updated the bios, but the dvd player never spins up when a dvd is inserted. What should I try next?

Hi,

You can try the steps below to fix this issue.

1. Edit the registry:-
1. Click Start, and click Run.
2. Type regedit in the Open box, and click OK.
3. In Registry Editor, click the plus (+) sign next to each folder name to expand the following registry path:
4. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class
5. Under Class, click {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}.
6. In the right pane, right-click Upper Filters, and click Delete.

If you do not have VLC player on your system, you can download it online (free download) and install it on your system. Once you have installed VLC player, it will play almost all dvd formats.

Most portable dvd players will not read burned dvd/cds. Please be sure to use originals in your dvd player. If you have a user's manual it should tell you if your player reads CDR's or DVD/RWs

Plays cds but not dvds


If the lens is clean (clean with cotton swab and alcohol), then the optics are failing. DVDs require more power and accuracy to be read than CDs. The ability to read CDs but not DVDs is usually a good indication that the optics are starting to fail.

Portable dvd player will play music cds but not video dvds


Chances are, your DVD player uses one laser to read CDs, and a different laser to read DVDs (since Cds and DVDs are read at different wavelenghts of light). If the DVDs you're trying to watch work properly in other DVD players, it probably means that the DVD laser is dirty, damaged, or burned out. Though you can try cleaning the laser (use Google for suggestions on how to do this, or check the Audiovox website), you will most likely have to get the DVD player repaired, or buy a replacement. Many of the newer CD/DVD players sold today use a single combination laser, which reads both CDs and DVDs, which means that when the laser fails, it will not work at all. Wish I had better news for you, but I guess that the only consolation you have is that your Audivox player still works with CDs...
