    Does the CD/DVD Drive appear in My Computer?



    Can you go to the Device Manager (Control Panel > Double Click System > Click the Hardware Tab > Click Device Manager Button. The click the plus sign (+) beside CD/DVD Rom Drives. Right click your CD/DVD Rom drive that is listed there and click Properties) Does the box that open up when you click properties give you an error code (Error Code 39, Error Code 11, etc)?

From the problems you're having, im assuming you have reloaded or updated your windows install, as you seem to be missing codecs and drivers.
The codecs are what allow the computer to recognize different video formats, to get full support for video formats, i would suggest going to download.com search for 'codec pack' and download the 'windows essentials media codec pack'. That should solve your problem, however if it does not you can also try a different media player, the best one is free and is called VLC media player, and can be downloaded from download.com as well.
The memory card reader most likely just needs a device driver. here is a list of all the device drivers available for your laptop from sony : http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=VGNNS135ES&LOC=3 scroll down to ' Memory card reader/writer' and expand by clicking the '+' next to it then download it and install. you may want to have a look at the list to make sure theres nothing else you need if you have infact had windows reloaded since purchasing the laptop.

SOURCE: Hi, My Dell Vostro1510's DVD

You could try reseating it. Should be a little popout button that you push, it pops out and you can pull the drive out. Then just push it back in. See if that helps. Otherwise it may just be bad.

Drive doesn't read disc


Plus you cleaned it?

Then suggest the Optical Drive is bad. (CD/DVD drive)

They are a mechanical device, and as such have a 'Life-Cycle'.
It is deemed in so many hours of usage.

Would appear yours has reached it's last cycle..........

Dvd reading error


Try using a known-good (for instance, a movie you just watched on your TV). If it doesn't read that disc, make certain you have seated the disk in the drive properly (Laptop drives have a *CLICK!* when you have seated the disc properly). If that doesn't work- if the laptop is in warranty, get it fixed. If not, use an external drive to fulfill your media needs

Dell studio 1555 doesn't read DVD or CD , when I insert CD / DVD it looks like it is reading the media but when I click on Drive icon, it ejects the media.


First reinstall the DVD driver to see if the DVD drive works.
If not then -
Try removing the DVD drive and inserting it back to make sure it properly connected then boot up the laptop and go into the BIOS and see it the DVD drive is detected, if the DVD drive is not detected then the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

My cd drive will read cds but wont read as a burner


Not all Inspirons have CD burners (the 4 factory options were CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, and DVD/CD-RW. You can confirm that via Windows Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and double click on DVD/CD-ROM drives to see what model drive you have, then just Google it to see what it's capable of.

In case you have either a CD-RW type drive or a DVD/ CD-RW drive and it doesn't want to burn CD's , then it's a bad drive.

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

I have a NEC Lavie L LL550/3 that doesn't read


The CD and DVD reading portions of the drive use different sensors, so it's possible it would stop reading DVDs but still continue to read basic (audio) CDs.

The question is, will the same, working audio CD work while booted up fully?

If it does not, it may be a matter of a driver problem; unfortunately drivers cannot be found online for this model. Check this thread and make a post or comment to try to find someone who may have the drivers you need.

Cd/dvd drive on my Dell latitude D810 will not read


Try to clean the laser within the dvd drive with a soft material. If this doesn`t work, try to hear if the cd or dvd is rotating in the drive. If not, the drive should be repaired b specialists.

Dvd player


Try using a head cleaner cd/dvd to see if that solves the problem. Failing to read a dvd but being ok with cds is norm a sign of drive startin to die. Dvds are harder for it to read due to smaller track width.
