    frmthhrtchne, if you go under "My Computer" can you see the cd rom drive at all?

  • Justin Wolery May 11, 2010

    is this an old or new drive? sometimes when optical drives start to go bad they will read cds but not dvds or dvds but not cds, will it read a data cd but not an audio cd? or just audio cds?

Double click "My Computer.  Right click the DVD drive.  Select "Autoplay," if it is an option.  Otherwise, select "Open," and double click the fine you want to play.

LG cd player not playing the .dat files. None of the .dat files will play on my cd player


Can you copy the file to your local drive and play it ? If you can then it's no problem with CD Player. Which player do you have ? The file could be corrupted.

My teac dvd/cd player wont play some cds


Probably a codec problem on the notebook. rather than a drive problem. Try a 3rd party media player such as Real Player or Quicktime

Dvd not playing dvds


Basic Information:

i) try to choose  right burner for eg: Nero CD/DVD Burner

ii) try to choose the right format,

     for eg: MP3/MP4/ Audio Songs will come under Audio format
               in such case select "Audio CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner


     for eg: .DAT/MPEG/MP4/Video will come under Video format

                in such case select "Video CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner


     for eg: "DATA CD format" is only storing some data on CD/DVD iresspective whether it is                            Videofile or Audio file, 

                these "DATA CD formated" CD/DVD when played in DVD Player will play only Audio files 
                but no Video Files
