DVDs demand a much higher precision to read a disk than do CDs and when they go down the tubes, the DVD is the first place it will show up. You can try using a cleaning disk but this is often not successful.

Hello I have Samsung SH-S223 and it doesn't read any of CDs or DVDs My computer recognize DVD-ROM and everything seems to be good maybe I need drivers for it? But all drivers have a letter after S223....


Do you have itunes installed?
If so Itunes put upper and lower filters in the registry key taking control of the dvd.
Goto Start type in cmd if it is vista, if it is XP click on run, then type in cmd, then regedit goto these keys in registry.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{6D807884-7D21-11CF-801C-08002BE10318}

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{CE5939AE-EBDE-11D0-B181-0000F8753EC4}

Goto each key listed above and delete upper and lower filters then close out of registry editor goto device manager go down to dvd/cd rom drives right click on the dvd drive and delete it and if asked to delete drivers for this device check box to delete drivers then close out of device manager and restart the computer.
These upper and lower filters will say something like Gear Aspi.

My dell dvd rom can't read some cds and dvds


you were saying some? and not all the cds and dvds? it may be that those other discs are unreadable anymore caused by scratches, marks, or the like. if other discs can be read then the player is all good. also check what file format you are trying to play. it may also be that the file format you are playing is not compatible with the program you are using to play it with like windows media player, media classic, etc.

LG DVD RW not reading dvd


If the problem is only with reading the DVD's seems you do not have a dvd decoder installed or an appropriate dvd player. Download vlcplayer it plays most of the file formats and has many codecs integrated within.
Click here to download
or go to:

  • Also delete the following key from registry editor:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlClass{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Note: clisk START>RUN>type"REGEDIT" and press enter.

  • Update the firmware for the DVDRW

Should it burn


  1. DVD-RW reads and burn DVDs and CDs with or without a tv connections (computer accessory)
  2. DVD-R if its is a dvd player it should be able to read DVD and record dvds with tv connection (this is not a computer accessory but a tv accessory)
  3. DVD-ROM can only read and can not write on DVDs

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
