Cannot read DVD but can CD?


Could be just a dirty lens. Try :-

1) Blowing some compressed air through it. You can get cans, may already have one.

2) Running a CD lens cleaner. Its practically the same mechanics.

After that, its taking it out and cleaning it.

Cd is detected but not any DVD!!!


Usually this indicates the write heads are going out of alignment. There is no easy repair for this and a new drive is your best bang for your buck. When these drives were $300-$400 we could spend the time to align things, when you can buy them for $30 and a cheap shop rate is $50 an hour you just can't fix these.

What happens is the dvd requires a lot more accuracy but cd's do not. So the dvd stops working while the cd seems to work fine. You will notice next that cd's you make will stop working on other machines and the last will be not reading cd's. Be careful with what you store on cd with this drive as the cd's may not be able to be read on other drives or computers as the alignment is too far out for them.

Suddenly stopped reading cds but reads dvds


Could be a bad drive, as DVD lasers are a little different than just CD lasers. The laser may be bad for one, but the other can work. I had this issue, had to buy a new drive.

Dvd ,cd worn't work


the driver should allready be installed with windows

What type of problem are you having with the drive?

Does the drive read CD's but not DVD's or niether one?

Did the drive work fine and suddenly stop reading just DVD's but still reads CD's most of the time?

Or is this a new drive that hasn't worked at all yet?

for CD use the driver should allready be installed with windows and almost never needs to be installed seperately

for DVD playback in windows XP you will need to install some sort of DVD driver into the system like power dvd or windvd or you can download DVD support for windows media player here : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx#DVDDecoder

But I would need answers to some or at least one of the following questions before being able to help any further

1. What type of problem are you having with the drive?
2. Does the drive read CD's but not DVD's or niether one?
3. Did the drive work fine and suddenly stop reading just DVD's but still reads CD's most of the time?
4. Or is this a new drive that hasn't worked at all yet?
5. What operating system are you using?

I hope this info helps (please let me know if it does not)

My dvd combo does not read dvd


There are separate lasers for CD reading, and for DVD reading. This is why it is possible to have a drive that reads only CDs but not DVDs, or the other way around. And your particular combo unit seems to have a lot of these problems. Since the drive doesn't work it's almost definitely a problem with the drive itself (I'm assuming that there is nothing wrong with the discs you tried to read). If that drive is still covered by a warranty period, send it back for repairs. Otherwise, I can't see the harm in trying to tinker with it yourself as the DVD portion of it is dead anyways. Ummm, on a side note...CompUSA is going out of business and they are selling things cheap. I got a DVD lightscribe burner for $40...booyah!
