I dont have a dvd driver only a cd rom one and when i put a dvd in nothing happens


Hi,

The reason behind that is because the CD ROM cannot read DVDs. If you want to play or install DVD based programs you need to replace your CD ROM with a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW. You also can purchase an external DVD ROM if you dont want take that CD ROM from its place.

Rating my assistance will greatly be appreciated. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Cannot play cd/dvd's computer sees device but wont play. Try's to read a few times then nothing.


it sounds like you need a new dvd rom,
the drive that shows up in my computer can still be seen,
as you click on it , try to notice the sound of the rom,
sometimes you can use rubbing alcohol on the eye, or a cd cleaner can get it back

My laptop used to play dvds but no longer works, cd's still work fine but dvds wont play, but still come up in computer.


02bc6b7.jpg Do follow steps,
1) change your DVD disk :- if it's work, don't worry about the driver.
2) go to Device Manager & check the DVD/CD ROM driver's property, check weather it has been disabled.
3) change your OS or Upgrade current OS
4) if above steps are not worked, then you have to bring your laptop to a service provider...

if you are in warranty period don't remove any parts of it, they will replaced a another DVD driver

New Dell Inspiron, wont play DVD's states no device drivers and ref TSSTcorp DVD 2B RW TS L633B


You need to use the software to play DVD movies. Try using windows media player to start the DVD or if the computer came with DVD playing software then try it. You can also check the Dell site and download the latest driver package and install the drivers. It might be missing the dvd rom driver. When you put in the DVD does it autoplay and ask you what software to use to open the disc? You can also go into the control panel and check the device manager. Check and see if the dvd rom is a problem device and/or try to update driver for the device. Have you tried different dvds? Maybe it is having a problem with just that DVD. Some DVD's will not play in a computer but will play in a DVD player.

My laptop wont play dvds!


One of two possibilities:

1. Your laptop does not have a DVD player installed. Check the bezel on the optical drive and see if it says DVD on it. If not, then it won't play DVDs.

2. The DVD player needs to be replaced as the DVD laser has gone bad.

After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.


Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty
