    how exactly doesn't it read cd's? does it sence a cd as full and empty at the same time and can't launch it, does it say it can't read the RAW format, does it act like no cd is there?
    does it spinn the cd full speed like it's supposed to, or does it gist accelerate half way and act like nothing's there

Hi,
The problem may be for a variety of reasons,
can you please let us know the DVD drive maker name.

You can find it under, My Computer-> Right click 'Properties' and choose Device Manager.

Also you can try to update your firmware for the DVD drive you are having.

Thanks.

MY dell inspiron 1000 plays cd's but will not recognize any dvd's. help!


Its possible the drive is going bad or if you did not buy this new the previous owner may have taken the DVD drive out and replaced it with just a CD drive, one way to check this on your dell is to look at the picture below and you will see that it says dvd on it, Check to see if yours looks the same if it is not the same chances are it was replaced. You can always right click on the cd drive within my computer and go to properties and see what it says, Hope this helps you out and should you need any other help let us know thanks again.

Dell Inspiron E1505 CD/DVD Drive reads only dell disks.


If the driver didnt fix your problem, your disk drive might be faulty , maybe the problem is on the disk drives lens this is very common problem 2 any other cd/dvd rom drives.

Cd/dvd wont play only wants me to burn


What you describe is a failure of the Read optics of the drive. If you boot to the safe mode, and have the same issue, reseat the drive and there is no change, then the drive is bad. Replacements are generally less than $100

My Dell Inspiron 700 laptop with Windows XP suddenly will not boo


Remove the hard drive, then see if you can boot to the XP CD. If you can, then the Hard DIsk Drive has most likely failed. Reseat the HDD and try booting to CD again. If problem comes back, try a new hard drive.

Cd/dvd rom not working


go into device manager and see if your drive is listed or has an exclamation point beside it.if you dont know how to open device manger go to start menu and click help and search device manager.if there is an exclamation point ! click it and it will tell you the problem.you may need to download a new driver or reinstall the old driver. the only other possibility is the drive is dead :(
