Try update driver, firmware. if it doesn't work, your drive physically has a problem.
I got a matsushita dvd ram, after 2 years, it stuff up. So if yours also does not work after updating, check for warranty.

Disk drive lenovo computer not open


Is the 'D' drive the cd/dvd drive? If so, try cds or dvds of different types to see what works. Some cd units won't read a dvd. A little light should come on if the drive is trying to read. No light, drive is dead.

How do i remove the region codes


With Windows XP and above and most DVD players today users do have the option to change their DVD region scheme a few times (often no more than four times). To adjust the region in Windows follow the below steps.

  1. Click Start, Settings, and open Control Panel
  2. Double-click the System icon.
  3. In the System Properties click the Hardware tab.
  4. In Hardware click the Device Manager button.
  5. In Device Manager click the "+" symbol next to the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon.
  6. This should expand and display each of the drives installed in your computer. Double-click the DVD drive you wish to change the region for.
  7. In the Properties window click the DVD Region tab.
  8. Within this window you should be able to change your region code and also be able to see how many changes remaining you have on the drive.

CD DVD ROM doesnt read dvds when i insert the disk the light turns on i can hear the dvd turning but later on it stops. turn and stop again. then it doesnt read the dvd anymore


Hello,

how long have you been using this CD ROM? I suspect the laser (lens) of the CD ROM. I think the laser (lens) is weak that's why it cannot read data/files on DVD.

To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the CD ROM and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or a mechanism problem.

Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the CD ROM cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.

If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new CD ROM.

Good luck...........

Will read cd but doesn't play dvd


Hard drives are used for storing files or loading applications. A CD-Rom drive is what you need to read cd's and a DVD-Rom drive which can read both. You cant place a cd, dvd or blu-ray disc into a hardrive because it is enclose and does not have and open/close button for the tray to eject or close

How to transfer movies from dvds to my western digital passport essential


Assuming you have a DVD drive and your HD is already set up, all you have to do is insert the DVD, open "My Computer", open the DVD drive folder and copy the files inside it to your HD folder. If you have trouble playing the video, download the VLC player, it plays almost anything, if you still have trouble, right click on the video folder and click play with VLC player.

External Hard Drive


If you plan to store movies on the HD, better buying a 1TB hard drive. WD Mybook is one of the best external HD.

To rip and store DVD movies into the hard disk you will need a specific software, like the ones below.

DVD Converter - convert DVD video to AVI/MPEG/DIVX files

Freeware converts DVD AVI MPEG WMV RM to MP3 or iPod Video

Movie2x Freeware DVD Converter Download

DVDx (freeware from labDV)

Hooking up the WD Passport to a USB enabled CD/DVD player possible?


hmmm...it may just be a capacity and interface issue, with the flash drive being more 'accessible' through the USB interface than the wd passport.

Big issue..is the WD on USB 2.0, and the CD/DVD on USB 1.0?
