hey,
i have inspiron 6400 myself, with vista home edition installed.

your e1505 is the new version of my dell

spec and review here on e1505 http://blog.miguelovitch.dk/2007/12/18/dell-inspiron-e1505-replace-6400/

I can watch movies both online and 'offline'. DVDs, mpeg, avi, and wmv format and more.

I think you have some problems with your media player or codec.

Are you using xp or vista?

why pay for software?

SOURCE: my dell d610 laptop cd/dvd drive not working

the drive has one lens, that works for both cd's and dvd's. when it reads a dvd it uses a higher light frequency, however when reading a cd it will use a lower light frequency. the lens is most likely dirty, which is why the high frequency light aka dvd is working but not the low frequency light aka cd. a specialized lens cleaning cd may be needed. or if you want to do it manually open the drive exposing the lens, then get a q-tip and some rubbing alchohol. dip the q-tip in the rubbing alchohol and rub the lens gently in a circlular motion. then turn the q-tip over to the dry side and do the same to dry it. thank you for using fixya!

SOURCE: Dell Laptop inspiron B130 Cd/DVD player will not work

DVD43 is freeware and does not get updated very often. Although, there has been at least one update recently according to the threads I could find. I would try updating to the most current driver for DVD43 and see if that fixes the problem. If not try to remove the program again once the drivers have been updated. Some times a program will not remove through regular means when something in the program is corrupt. Hope this helps...

SOURCE: The cd/dvd drive does not work on my dell 1525

If you do not see it when you explore it is driver issue. Some how drivers got removed or got corrupted.If you go to device manager you should see you CD/DVD drive and all you have to do is right click on it and click uninstall and cofirm. Once done restart and it will reinstall the driver by it self. Give it few minutes. If it is not in device manager then you need to go to dell's site and download latest drivers.

My PC wont play album I requested.


You only need compatible dvd player software to listen to movie dvd disks. For playing standard audio cd disks, nothing is needed since this support comes built in-to the OS, (Windows XP or higher)

The disc drive on my acer Aspire 5742G will not read any music cd's or dvds. I makes plenty of noise as though it is trying to open it but nothing!


The CD/DVD drive may need reseating to make proper electrical connection. Remove this drive and insert it back into the laptop.
Next try cleanibg the drive.
The laser lens maybe dirty, use a CD/DVD lens cleaning kit to clean the lens int the drive.
If this does not fix your problem then the CD/DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

I'm using a coby laptop. it suddenly crashed and when i restart it, it says press Ctrl+R to recover data. so i did but nothing happen.


In most cases,Windows failing to start is caused by you installing a new program/hardware which caused a conflict with another programs or a system file got corrupted.
Youcan boot up your Windows with Tenorshare Data Recovery WinPE.It allows users toburn ISO file to CD/DVD/USB flash drive directly.
Step 1: Download Tenorshare Data Recovery WinPE in any available computer (notfrom PC that can't boot up). Then launch it.
Step 2: Insert CD/DVD/USB flash drive to the computer, choose ISO image file.Here we take USB flash drive for example. Then burn ISO file into flash drive.
Step 3: Insert the burned flash drive to the unbootable PC. Run computer andpress "F2", "F10" or "Delete" to enter BIOS setup.
Step 4: Use the arrow keys to select Boot tab, select Boot Device Priority andpress Enter. Please choose 1st Boot Device to USB, and then press F10 to savesetting. Now,you can boot up your PC.
If you have a backup for your Windows then perform a system restore to fixit.If not,reinstall it.If you have no backups for all your data,you can useTenorshare to retrieve data under any boot up problem.You can get it from http://www.any-data-recovery.com/product/datarecoverywinpe.htm
Here is tutorial to guide you how to do --How toRecover Data from Computer Won't Boot Up?-Windows Data Recovery.

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

I have a Dell Inspiron E1405 laptop computer. I recently noticed that when I inserted a music CD into the drive, that it would not play or even recognize it in the My Computer window. I can still play DVDs...


The Cd player my be dirty, you can get disks you put in there to clean them. Also sometimes the players are just picky and don't like certain CD's..... I'll build brand new PC's that only read some CD right from the start.

Make sure your disks are clean to, with no fingerprints.

NEW gcc-h23n will not read anything


If not reading DVD is a pattern (it won;t read ANY DVD, no matter if it's a burned one or an original movie) then the lens is dead. I'm afraid you'll have to go get a new one (new drives are very cheap, usually around 25-30$)

Are you sure that you have a cd drive? It could be that it is only a dvd drive. It could also be that the cd has a scratch or is unreadable.
