  2. try to clean dust from inside
  3. and then try again
or if not able to open it
  1. buy a lens cleaner form market and try to clean with it .

My Compaq V500 laptop is having dvd rom but for last couple of weeks it is not recognizing dvds while it reads cds.so please tell me how to rectify this issue?


Thats a typical symptom of the read/wrtie heads on the driving slowly getting out of alignment. Unfortunetly about the only thing you can do is replace the drive when it no longer can read cds. What happens is the heads get out of alignment and since dvds pack much more data and require a lot more accuracy to work they stop working first. The cd's will eventually not read as well.

Whe optical drives were worth quite a bit we would realign the heads but no the replacement cost is less than an hours labour so its not done anymore. You can buy new drives for about $75 from laptop repairor parts places. If you do a search for laptop repair parts on bin or google you can find hundreds. Just look for one close to you or fnd a good price. http://www.laptoprepairparts.com/ is one.

To replace the drive requre you remove one screw on the bottom and the entire drive slides out. Put in the new one, put the screw back in, the battery back in and you are done. When you do a search mostsites will have instruction on how to do it.

When I want to copy a CD must I only record on a CD blank disc; i.e. not a DVD


It depends upon what type of data you want to copy onto a CD or DVD.
If you want to copy and play music in a CD player then it needs to be on a CD disc.
If you want to copy and play movie DVDs in a DVD player then it needs to be on a DVD disc.
If you want to backup data files then it can be on either CD or DVD discs (depending upon the amount of data to be stored on the disc - CD holds 700 Mb, single layer DVD holds 4.7 Gb, and dual layer DVD holds 8.5 Gb of data).
A DVD player can read both CDs and DVDs, but a CD player cannot read DVD discs.

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

I'm using lenovo y500 series 4EQ laptop/vista home basic.however my DVD drive (matshita DVD-RAM-UJ-85JS) doesnt recognize dvds, blank DVDs in certain but it recognizes cds that came with the service pack


It may be necessary to upgrade the "firmware" (software residing inside the DVD unit) to recognize the "newest" of blank DVD media.

Each "blank" disk has an identifier electronically written onto the disk -- if the firmware does not recognize that identifier, it needs to be upgraded in order to recognize it.

Check Toshiba's "support" web-site for a firmware update.

iTunes can no longer find my CD burner. Using a gatewayM-1631U laptop, with windows 7 x 64 home premium edition. (See additional details below). I use iTunes regularly, and as recently as Xmas 2009 was burning music CDs frequently on my laptop. Yesterday I attempted to burn a CD, and iTunes no longer recognizes the installed CD burner. I have not installed any programs to my computer recently, or made any other changes. Today I began investigating the issue. I have tried (not in order) the following - and have not solved the issue: 1. Going to the registry editor and deleting the lower and upper filters associated with the H_KEY_LOCAL MACHINE/SYSTEM/CURRENT CONTROL SET/CONTROL/CLASS 4DE3695 .... 2. Uninstall and reinstall iTunes (9.0.2.25) 3. Repair iTunes 9.0.2.25 4. Looked for updates for the drivers (can't find any) 5. Downloading Gearsoft products I admit that I have not tried Windows Media Player (because I'm committed to my iTunes - I sync with my ipod all the time and listen to it alot). I also realize I may have made the problem worse by some of my attempted fixes. Here is the information gathered through itunes diagnostics: Microsoft Windows 7 x64 Home Premium Edition (Build 7600) Gateway M-1631U iTunes 9.0.2.25 QuickTime 7.6.5 FairPlay 1.5.23 Apple Application Support 1.1.0 iPod Updater Library 9.0d11 CD Driver 2.2.0.1 CD Driver DLL 2.1.1.1 Apple Mobile Device 2.6.0.32 Apple Mobile Device Driver not found. Bonjour 1.0.6.2 (118.5) iTunes Serial Number 2987488CE609EDAB Current user is not an administrator. The current local date and time is 2010-02-05 07:50:22. iTunes is not running in safe mode. Video Display Information ATI Technologies Inc., ATI Radeon X1200 Series **** External Plug-ins Information **** No external plug-ins installed. iPodService 9.0.2.25 is currently running. iTunesHelper 9.0.2.25 is currently running. Apple Mobile Device service 2.50.39.0 is currently running. **** CD/DVD Drive Tests **** No drivers in LowerFilters. UpperFilters: GEARAspiWDM (2.2.0.1), Failed while scanning for CD / DVD drives, error 2380. Error while opening iTunes CD driver. This could be caused by a corrupted iTunes file or a conflict with other older CD burning applications, either currently installed or previously installed and uninstalled incorrectly. Additionally, the device driver says my DVD/CD unit is: Optiarc DVD RW AD-7563A ATA Device Anything else you need to help me figure this out? Could really use help and advice. Thanks in advance.
