Does any other DVD play? If so, your drivers are fine and the disc may be unreadable due to dirt on the lens, scratched too badly, not in the correct format, etc. Is there any error message? When you put the disc in, does the DVD drive icon change? You can also try putting the DVD in another DVD player to see if it plays in that one.

I have a Vostro 1500 Dell laptop running Windows XP and just recently my CD/DVD drive has stopped working. I was wondering if I should reload my drivers and which ones I should download. Thanks, Mike...


There aren't specific drivers for a CD/DVD drive, they came built in the windows installer. If you have problems with you CD/DVD drive, you will have to change it. It's very easy, you won't have to dissamble the laptop. You can see on youtube how to replace a CD/DVD drive: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Nj_sizEBw8&feature=related. There are CD/DVD drivers for 10$ on second hand.

After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.


Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty

Hp pavillion dv6835nr dvd player


Try this, put a DVD movie in the drive, then open windows explorer (Right click the start button, click explore) then see if you can read the DVD files on the DVD.

If you cannot browse the DVD then the DVD optics of the drive have failed and you will need to replace the drive.
