    Some DVDs cannot be read with Inspiron 531s. CD's all work. Have tried enabling and disabling drive. Have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver to no avail.

I have the hp inspiron 531s.Can i burn cd or dvd??


Yes your computer has a DVD writer... It should have the software to burn DVDs and CDs


The Dell Inspiron 531 is a desktop personal computer with a Microsoft Windows operating system. An Inspiron equipped with a CD burner can be used to record audio discs using Windows Media Player, which comes installed on the Inspiron as a standard part of the software package Dell loads onto its computers. Blank, recordable discs and pre-recorded audio CDs are the only supplies needed for the project.

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.

The Inspiron B130 is an older (5 to 6 years) budget pc with an optical drive that can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs. So your problem is not really a problem but rather a limitation. Click on the following link to read PC Magazine's review dated September 19, 2006 on the B130...

My Dell Inspiron 530 will play CDs but it does not read DVDs any more. All my drivers are up-to-date. Anyone having this problem, or more importantly know how to fix it?


my friend this not about drivers.
laser head (which read discs) is weaken.
in common way you should change your DVD drive completely.
but i learn you a great way and this way isn't dangerous.
in this way you only clean laser head.so do these works:
1- open PC's case and evolve DVD drive completely from The Case.
2- open DVD drive's screw's and try to find a small & shiny piece (laser head) (it is like Diamond!).
3- rub slowly on that shiny piece with a piece of cotton stained but some alcohol.
4- assemble DVD drive and put it back in The PC Case.
5- congratulate you because you saved you money smartly.

Can i burn the mini cd's/dvd's in my inspiron 1525?


Yes you can, your Notebook has a Dvd Writer with it, mini or normal dvds/cds will burn well without any problem if the Cd/Dvd Drive has no issues reading/writing Cds/Dvds.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Cdrom doesnt recognise blank dvd. error message


Its only cd writer burner and can only that it can read dvd disc also. That is why its called combo. But burning blank dvd it can't. But if you want buy some dvdburner too.

DVD ROM


Have you tried using a lense cleaner disk?

Can you hear the disk spinning at all?

Is the problem with both cd and dvds?

What kid of disk are you trying to play? Some dvd roms will not read dvdrw disks.
