HFS+ CD not reading properly

This is something new for me. I can no longer run some cds in my pcdrives. I get an apple logo instead of a cd-rom logo in my pc window. Iclick on properties and it says its a HFS+ plus cd. the thing is I usedto play that exactly same CD a month ago without any problems. I m able to see the contents but not open even images.

Thanks.

I cannot hear sound system play cds and videos


Every CD/DVD-ROM drive has an audio port opened. An audio cable connects to the back side of the CD/DVD-ROM and connects to the motherboard. Most MB's have two four pin audio ports, one slot white in color and a second black in color. As far as the CD/DVD-ROM not reading the disk. Make sure the disk is free from scratches; oils from you're fingers or just plain dust. Open the drawl and blow out the CD-ROM drive or buy a CD cleaner which will clean the internal laser. These days it’s hard to find a CD/DVD ROM drive with a warranty longer than 1 year. Most ppl buy a new one when it fails to read CD's.

Cheers'
Mike

This drive reads a dvd but not cds. do you have


may be it's only a DVD ROM drive not a combo,
you will need a combo to read both DVD and CD
if it was reading CDs earlier then the CDs might have scratch in them, try with new CD.
did u make changes to the cables inside, if you did check if the cabels are connected properly to the drive

Dell latitude c640 laptop with cd dvd drive wont play dvd


Check the front of the drive for a DVD logo - if it doesn't have the logo, then it can't read or play DVDs.
If the DVD logo is present on the drive, then you still need a program with Windows in order to play back a DVD video. I'd probably use something along the line of WinDVD from Corel (previously InterVideo).
Good luck, and please rate this answer if you feel it has helped you!!

CD changer will not play reads "player error" .


Most new car-stereo's don't have an "oldschool" CD-drive, but really a CD-ROM drive; meaning that they won't (properly) read and/or play copy-protected CDs.

Most CD protections are specially designed not to work in CD-ROM drives to prevent copying. As a side-effect most of those protected CDs won't work in car-stereo's.

Try a CD without copy-protection (like an homemade audio CD using burning software on your computer) and see it that works ?

In case that doesn't work either, your car's CD-drive is probably broken ...

My cd/dvd combo driver will no longer burn discs


Instead of looking for repair programs, try looking for drivers for that specific cd/dvd drive. It may simply need a new driver.

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive


Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
