Philips cdrw dvd scb5265


I would recommend trying BurnAware free DVD/CD burner. You can download this and use it free. It has an option to burn MP3 CDs. Just browse to the folder that has your MP3 files and add them to the burn list, and click Burn. If that works for you, then the problem is not your DVD drive, it is your application.

PHILIPS CDRW/DVD SCB5265 ATA Device cannot play most DVDs


I'm guessing you may have locked the DVD region. If you right-click on the device in Device Manager and click the Region tab, does it say 0 changes available? Acer won't fix this, and claim you have to replace the drive. Can't find a firmware flash for this drive online, will post back here if successful!

My Matshita UJDA 750 DVD/CDRW wont recognize a blank DVD discs. How ever it does read both CDs and DVDs and only burns CDs.... please help


Are you trying to burn a dvd? If so from the spec you gave in the problem description your drive will burn cds(CDRW) but will only play dvds(DVD). If it stated DVDRW then you would be able to burn DVDs as in the CDRW.

Philips SCB5265 DVD/CDRW drive only reads CDs but not DVDs


Take a can of air and blow it on the laser then try to see if it will read both cd's and dvd's. If it doesn't read one or the other then the dvd-rw would need to be replaced.

Driver problem with DVD/CDRW device driver


Hi sandystell,

Well normally in Windows XP the DVD/CDRW drive won't need anymore drivers, since Windows automatically installs one for it. I assume the problem you're having is that the drive is not able to read CDs/DVDs or burn a disc, correct?

If that is the case you can actually follow this microsoft KB article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb%3Ben-us%3B314060

This will give you indepth help on what to do. I would recommend that you do the removal of the upper filters and lower filters in the registry.

You can test if the optical drive works in Safe Mode, by pressing F8 on startup and choosing Safe Mode, then logging into yourr account. See if the disc is read in Safe Mode, if it does, then you have a program that is conflicting with the drive. I would recommend that you run MSCONFIG, goto Startup tab and disable most if not all of the startup items, then click on APPLY then OK.

The next thing is running the diagnostics for the computer to see if there any reported hardware problems. Now if all tests passed, the next step is reseating the optical drive (if possible) check the computer manual on how to do procedure, otherwise you may have to call up Dell Technical Support.

Now you may have to replace the drive itself since it could be defective now.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
