Question about Computers & Internet

CD nor DVD RW drives play but no copy-photos either!

Is it the computer, the software, the media or the drive? The Computer knows the drive is there, and will play music or video media, but when I use blank CDs or DVDs (RW) it can't see them. How do I back up things when I can't use the feature? Using IBM Record Now!

If a problem on 2 x pc's then its probably a drive issue.

Does it play CD/DVD's ?. If not you could try a CD lens cleaning disk, it may just need a good clean out.

As you're moving it between PC's then the IDE cable is probably connected properly.

My only other thought is that it is faulty, probably not worth repairing, you can get dual layer DVD/CD rw drives for under £15 on ebay.

Play back is jumpy


Hi,
Problem may be with your drive or playback software.

Solutions:

1. Copy your media from your DVD disc to your harddisc and then try playing it (not directly from DVD drive). If media plays well, then there can be problem with your drive.

2. If still play back jumps after copying the DVD to your computer, then the problem might be with your system. Download and install VLC media player from the link.This should fix the proper due to codec and playback.

I hope this is helpful in solving your problem.
Thanks

Check file extensions of files on your recorded cd's. Add file extension to Roxio, Windows Media player and check your drive settings.

The drive is in your computer? What Brand? any Idea?
How long since you put a cleaning disc through the Drive?
