Try cleaning the head with a burst of clean air from a compressor. Be careful not use air with oil or water mixed into it. Sometimes, with the mere blowing of air from your mouth would clean the lens.

My sony DVD-ROM DDU 1615 does not play DVD video or record my videos onto dvds.


If you want to just PLAY DVD movies with your current setup, then try downloading and installing a free program called VLC MEDIA PLAYER from WWW.CNET.COM which will let you play DVDs on your computer.

Here is the direct link to their download page where you can read about the software, check out other user's reviews, and download it free if you want:

http://download.cnet.com/VLC-Media-Player/3000-13632_4-10267151.html?tag=main;productListing


I use this free progarm on my computer and it works great.

Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated.

Then just click on the DOWNLOAD NOW (19.42 MB) button that you see on the left hand side of the page.

Then follow the onscreen instructions to download and install the program. Be sure to click on the yellow security bar at top of the page if necessary to ALLOW DOWNLOAD.
However, if you want to actually BURN videos onto recordable DVDs, then you are going to have to go out and buy a bit of new hardware.

The ROM part in DVD ROM stands for READ ONLY MEMORY. That means your disk drive can only READ DVD disks, it is unable to BURN (record) onto disks. For that you will have to go out and buy a DVD RW disk drive. They look exactly the same as yours, but are a few bucks more, and they have the extra capability of burning files onto blank recordable DVD disks (DVD-Rs).

Please comment back here to this page if you have any questions, have difficulty accessing the links, or just require further general assistance and I will respond as soon as I see it.

Thank you very much, good luck, and take care.

Joe.

My sony dvd rom is not displaying on my computer., for example G drive. So i am not able to read and write any dvd.


check the communication cable are inserted or not, you can see it to open the cpu cover and look for the same, there are two cables are inserted in dvd/cd rom first for the power and second for data. if you find all the things are ok you can check it from your BIOS settings.

My DVD drive can read a CD-ROM and play an audio CD, but it cannot play a DVD


Your computer is missing a DVD decoder software. Simply download and install VLC media player and K-Lite codec. Both are free download. You will find the download link by simply doing a google search.

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
