You may be using the wrong type of DVD format. Some DVD-ROMs and players will only read certain discs. i.e. DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RAM. If you are trying to read a DVD-R disc that was bought blank, and then had things burned to it, it may be that the disc wasn't finalised after burning. You could always try updating the Firmware version by downloading it from the website.

Comdo fail to read DVDs'


  1. Check its DVD reading speed
  2. Try reading a prerecorded or original DVD disk for a movie for example, if it can read this then it means the DVD you are tryng to read were burnt at speed faster than what your DVD can read.
