There is a difference between a CD "music usually or data" and "DVD". Some players/computers only play CD's. Some are DVD/CD players/writers. Which is yours. If you have a CD player, it will never play a movie. Put in #1.a CD and try. If it works good. Then put in #2. a DVD it might not be a DVD player. Past that it would be a defective player. Get a lense cleaner disk at y computer/variety store". Insert it in your computer and run the program.lay a movie. If it is scratched or dirty. Clean and try again. No luck, You have a bad player of software issue. The Disk player can be slid out and replaced at any computer store. $59? Good Luck. John
Try playing a music CD to see if it works. Then try playing a DVD ( a DVD movie ) and see if that works. If the CD works and the DVD doesn't then your CD/DVD drive is probably the problem and needs to be replaced.
Computer disc are written in a format that PS3's read, if you want to play photos or what not you need to burn your disc using like Nero or Power DVD to say the least, you need to select picture CD not DATA or otherwise.
If your doing music you need to burn using make music CD not just drag and drop.
Try burning using picture CD format then update me with any questions you may have or problems that may arise from this solution.
If you got a SD CARD you can put the photos on it and the ps3 will pick those up just fine!
You shouldn't need anything special. Do you see the drive in My Computer? (Or "Computer" if you're using Windows 7.)
Try different things. Try a known good music CD, a known good data CD, not blanks, not DVDs. Can you play or read data from them? If not, you need to take it back to wherever you bought it and have them look at it.
Are you certain the drive is a DVD drive? If you can read data or music from CD's and not from DVD's then the drive is fine, and all you need is the software to play DVD's. There should be a disc in the original packaging.
It sounds like you can't do any of these things. If that's the case, I'd definitely bring it back and have them check it or get a new one.
cd-r80 are for music. Your best option is to buy a program like nero. I assume you are just dragging and dropping files to burn them right now. dvd's are more meant for backing up data or making movies because they hold a lot more data then a cd. Are you able to burn disc's at all? Just like all things involved with computers it can get complicated real quick.I hope this helps a little and if you have more questions let me know Thanks, Lee
If the optical unit can read DVD, but not data CDs , or music CDs , then the lens is dirty or defective. In that case , try first using a cleaner disk. If that does not work, replace the drive unit.
If instead the problem is that computer can read data CD but does not play music, then reinstall Windows media player. See Windows Media Player 10
When you are refering to the E drive, do you mean your dvd/cd drive?.
If so 2 things to try, first a lens cleaning cd rom, secondly if still no nada, go to my computer, right click, down to properties>Hardware>Device manager.
Click the '+' sign on DVD/CDROM Drives and highlight your drive and right click then Delete.
Re-boot you PC and let windows find your drive again automatically, then try playing something again.
If still nothing it's time to replace the drive, they are very cheap nowadays.
