It's pointing towards a hardware problem. You can try updating your drive's firmware.

Check HP's support page to see if they have one available.

If not you can check the device manager details of your drive and find one floating around the net, I'm sure.

What is the difference between a DVD+RW and a DVD-RW.


DVD-RW
It is the re-recordable version of the DVD-R. To use this type of media you will need to buy a DVD-RW recorder. The DVD-RW recorders usually record DVD-R, CD-R and CD-RW media, too. Similarly to what happens to DVD-R, DVD-RW disks can be played in newer commercial DVD players without any problems. Older commercial devices cannot recognize the media, refusing to play the disk. To play a DVD-RW disk, commercial players need the disk to be finished. After finishing the disk, you can only record new data in it by reformatting it, which makes you lose all the recorded data.

DVD+RW

It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks (but not of recording them) and vice-versa.


There you are.

Why won't CD/DVD RW drive won't recognize DVD disk?


Make sure you have the most current driver installed for that model. Go to IBM website and download, install. Once installed, try reading the disk again. That usually solves the problem.

And - all CD/DVD drives don't recognize all CD/DVD's - lots of different formats. Check the documentation for that drive to see which formats it can read.

Dvd and cds are not working the light keeps flashing yellow on dvd


Go into my computer and see if the dvd-rw is being recognized in there, It should be either the d: or e: drive.

If it is in there then try different disks like music cd's, game cd's movie dvds and see if it can read them and show information for them. If it can read some disks but not others then try cleaning the laser with a slightly damp q-tip with glass cleaner and then dry it off with another dry q-tip.

If it can read them all then problem solved, if it can only read some cd's or none of them then you have a bad laser and you will need to get the dvd-rw replaced.

Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.


You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.
