Question about Plextor PX-708UF DVD±RW Burner

1 Answer

DVD player won't read most DVDs

The light just blinks and blinks and nothing else happens when I insert most DVDs. It reads CDs fine, and I think it still's been a while since I have tried...but it seems to be very intolerant of little scratches/imperfections on DVDs...which is very frustrating...even the cheapest DVD player can tolerate little scratches...but not this Plextor burner!

Re: DVD player won't read most DVDs

Its faulty... without doubt... these "Combo" drives are often real flakey... sorry about that the laser diode has probably burnt out...

Does not read Cds or DVDs

most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.

LG CD-RW CED-8120B will not read dvds

I have a LG CED 8120B in my computer right now. The reason you cannot read DVD's is because it is a CD player/burner, and not DVD.

My lg GSA-H55N dvd writer is not playing Cds but plays Dvds fine

your DVD ROM lens has became weak.
and it cannot be repaired.
But if you manage to open the DVD ROM clean the dust in it & it will start working again but be careful remember that no power should be attached to ROM.
or you can buy a lens cleaner from market and try that.
pls rate my solution

Reads and writes cds,reads dvds but does not burn dvds,

This drive is normally supplied with a couple of Dells.
(because of compatibility) Inspiron 700m,710m

If you have another machine for testing?
check the disk for contents to see if the data burn happened,
this will explain a few things in your processes.

Uninstall/Reinstall the drive and reboot then try again.

Have you tried a full system reinstall yet?
Did it fix your problem?Please let me know thanks

DVD driver and handycam dvds

None at all - the DVD player has a chipset that is incompatible with that type of disk.
Check the player manual for the disk types it can handle

My GMA-4082N only recognize DVDs, but not CDs

This is a common problem I have seen over the years it appears that the Laser for the CD, burns out, or the detector for the CD side of things fails..either way it usually results in DVD working 100% BUT the CD side if things is no good... Unfortuanatly it means ya gonna have to get another unit :(

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE

When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
