I have had the same problem with my JVC TH-A85 until today. At the beginning, when it was new there was no problems reading home burned DVD but after a few year it start given pixel, stopping in the middle or at the end of the film, actually I gave up and bought a new Hard disk player/recorder one year ago, however it was stil annoying that JVC did'nt play, well, it worked fine with a purchased DVD, could also play CD music, but not my own DVD. Then I was reading about your problem and it came to my mind that I have bought "CD Laser Lens Cleaner" some years ago, I found it in my garage and placed in the JVC and now it works fine agian.

Hope this advice will help you.

PS. Sorry for spelling, I'm Danish so it might not be correct in spelling and gramma.

Could be many things. But it probably needs a new pick-up (laser). You can try cleaning it with rubbing alcohol on a cotton swab.

OS is Windows XP Professional CD drive will not reconize a DVD+R for recording data. The drive is a HL-D-ST CDRW/DVD GCC4244.

A CDRW/DVD is a CD-burner and DVD-ROM combined unit. It is not meant to record DVDs only CDs.

It will not recognise a blank DVD as it is unable to read any file system.

Latitude C840 wont reconize optical drive in BIOS

When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD or Blue ray lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the the whole drive unit.
