    OK--what exactly happens when you put a CD in the machine?
    Does it do anything at all?
    With the CD in, can you go to "my computer" and see the actual device listed?
    If so, when you click on it, does the CD open to show you what is on it, or does it tell you to insert a CD?

Take it apart the one screw on the back in the middle (s8) the ribbon, the lens, the track slider. you know how dirty disks are if its not dirty or connection is good then check within your computer about format speed or write protection even for home made disk like cam corder writed disks.

I cant play cd or dvd on my laptop


A DVD player that is an integral part of the laptop does not need drivers to make it play discs. If there is no driver shown, maybe the DVD unit is faulty?
All laptops will play CD/DVD from boot without drivers. The drivers are there to allow you to do specifics to the DVDs.

My dell laptop inspiron 1525 wont play dvd's, but it will play cd's.. i have windows vista


Two things to check: First, look on the tray edge - does it say DVD and CD, or just CD? If it does not say DVD,it will not play them. The second thing is you may not have software to play a DVD. Usually Windows will use media player, assuming you have a dvd player. You can also open "my computer" and the drive will show up as a DVD or just CD.

Stopped playing CD'S and DVD's. (HP


If the CD/DVD disks play in another computer, then the CD/DVD hardware inside your laptop has "died".

Take your computer to any local computer-repair store, and get them to trouble-shoot, and, if necessary, sell you a new CD/DVD drive, and connect it.

My IBM R51 laptop can't read any other cd/vcd


Hello,

its either its a lens problem or that was how the CD/DVD Drive was made.

There are some drives that doesn't play white face discs, that is, they select disc and don't play all CD's, so maybe yours fall under this category.

How long have you been using your laptop and has it ever played Cd/Vcd's before?

If it plays them before, then it means your drive's lens is weak, but if it has never played them before, then it means that's how the player was made.

Which ever way, you still have an option of replacing the drive if you wish.

Take care.

How to copy CD from Laptop to empty cd


Sounds like you made a data disk with MP3s and not an audio cd.

To play on a "regular" CD player, you should burn an audio cd.

Different burning programs have different options for this.

Problem in cd-dvd drive of hp laptop


This is not a driver problem. It is almost certainly a problem with yourdvd/cd player. If it is reading dvd's, then it means that the driver is installed. You will have to take your laptop in and possibly get the cd/dvd player replaced.
