SOURCE: Suddenly stopped reading cds but reads dvds

Could be a bad drive, as DVD lasers are a little different than just CD lasers. The laser may be bad for one, but the other can work. I had this issue, had to buy a new drive.

it has the same cd drive which you are talking about. the problem is only with the drive. they also do not provide any firmware to update it. there is no filters problem. the problem is mechanical which is something you cant fix. these are chinese made drives, just use and throw. so, its now time to throw. there is no point banging your head, becasue i already banged a lot for this issue, and please dont replace your drive with sony optirac, it will also give you the same problem. all the best.
the drive which you talked about is the same i had originally on my computer. i also tried myself to update the firmware of the drive but no go. it still did not work. so i checked the functionality of the dvd drive. what is the technology of dvd drive and i found there are 2 lenses in the drive to read cd and dvd. if one fails it will read only 1 type of cd or dvd then. presently my computer has 33rd optical drive which is again matishta. it is still working, i dont know how long will it work. but touchwood its working now. so all i can say after such a bad experience is that its just a luck. regarding which optical drive to get now? you can get any one. its just the name, technology remains the same. like a lot of different people. but blood remains the same. so name doesnot matter. But i strongly say drives with SONY OPTIRAC are the worst drive, Never buy that. other than that you can get anyone. hardly matters.

My Matshita DVD-Ram UJ831s was working OK-ish but all of a sudden it's decided not to play dvds will play cds though? I get an I/O device error warning when I try to manually open d drive files. Also have...


Physicall your DVD-Ram is defective. I have encountered like this before and what I do is change it a new drive. No more hope to read such DVD but rather than CDs is OK.
It is due to not often use with your DVD-Ram. Before I check it in computer center but later on it fails again so I buy a new one.
It's said the Speedometer is the problem or the "EYE LENS". Can read CD's but cannot read DVDs.
Good luck!

My Matshita UJ-840D DVD/CD-ROM Drive Stopped working


Hi,
i,m assuming this is A laptop Computer ?
The only thing you can try is this:-
go to My Computer/Control Panel/ System/Device Manager.
see if there are any yellow triangles or exclamation marks by your problem device. if so click un-install. then at the top of that page, there is a refresh icon or similar. which will rescan the systems bus.
failing this try add new hardware wizard, in control panel.
finally ensure the device is connected correctly, unlock/remove and re-insert. update any device drivers for this.

Various issues can cause drives to occasionally balk at writing optical discs. These run the gamut of physical, hardware, and software troubles.

Inappropriate or dirty media may be to blame. Make sure to match the type of recordable disc to the drive, and check each disc for fingerprints or other contaminants. If a disc is dirty, wipe it with a clean, soft cloth in a straight line from the center hole outward. Try a quality optical drive cleaning disc if you suspect dust contamination on the drive’s laser lens.

Some discs don’t perform well with certain drives, even within their rated speeds. Try recording at a slower speed and then with a different brand of disc. Also, on PCs, verify that the temporary file storage area on the hard drive used by the burning software has enough free, defragmented space. Allocate at least 5GB for a DVD (9GB for a double-layer [DL] disc) and about 1GB for CD burning.
