After reformatting a computer, inserting an optical disc into a drive will not allow it to autoplay (there is no operating system to take control of the situation). If the disc is bootable and the BIOS is configured to allow booting from an optical drive, restarting the machine with the disc in it should allow the system to boot off of that disc. If this is the problem you are trying to describe, press whatever key (F2, F12, Del, etc) allows you to enter your BIOS setup program and ensure that your computer will attempt to boot from your CD/DVD drive, save your changes, and allow the computer to reboot. This should solve the issue.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

Imy burner will burn if I go into MY COMPUTER than into MY E drive but the auto burn will not work. I do have 1dvd click and ashampoo on the computer as well, but when I put a disc into the computer it will not automtically work. I was wondering if the above programs are stopping the auto play on it or what? The burner works fine if I go to the E drive and install o burn it that way, is there some kind of a setting or something that went out of wack??

HI,
Double check the Ribbon Cable Connector is installed Correctly ( 40-80 Strand IDE ) sometimes if these are not fitted squarely Or pushed in hard enough. Can cause a Problem.
Also try the emergency eject procedure on The Drive. Small jewellers screwdriver Or Needle, insert into the drives faceplate ( pinhole in drives faceplate drawer ) push to open dvd drawer. pull out drawer Gently. And push back in. This ocassionally works for a stcking Drawer/eject mechanism.
Finally try the drive without a disk in ( open/eject Or Close )

Can not finalize disk (cd or dvd)


I just burned 6 movies, I noticed that when it goes to finalize, it ejects before finalization is complete. I use FAB Platinum 4.1. I'm going to go into the settings and use Nero burning rom before I remove my Sony and put in my other burner (Plextor) better then Sony I think. I used Nero before and it helped, maybe it will help this time. Why 3 movies did not play, and the others did is beyond me. Dan J
