I would suspect that your CD laser is bad (CD uses a different laser than DVD), and therefore should be replaced. Here is an ebay search to help you out: Best regards, torgo

Will CD-RW drive play video or do I need CD-Rom? (Gulp) Cost ?

NO sorry to tell you you need at least a dvd drive to play dvd's DVD - R/RW to burn onto a DVD disc but you are lucky, external DVD drives are relatively cheap now days, just look around online or at walmart my estimate is that you wont pay more than 200 for a dvd-rw drive (external) as far as the value of the computer you are getting i would say currently $200 to a max of $400 value if you were going to sell it and thats asking high. if you didnt pay more tha that then you are ok IF you did i would be asking for your money back as you can go to walmart and get 3 times the computer for 300 bucks. if you need to know more just shoot me an e-mail at just let me know in the subject that your real.

Dell Latitude C810 wont hold charge

Batteries for portable systems have a average expected life of 300 to 500 discharge / recharge cycles. On systems where you didn't use the battery a great deal, the battery may have a useful life of several years.

In you case, the batteries have long exceeded their normal life so you will need to find replacements.

Here are several sources:

Not able to run any DVD on my Laptop Latitude D610 whereas i can able to run CD Please solve this issue at the earliest.

You may have to check if the drive that is installed on the system is capable of running DVDs. if it just CD/CDRW then this will not work for a DVD CD. You need to have a CD/DVD drive.

Dell latitude c640


Both Dell Part numbers 18THT and 5W299 are 8X DVD-ROM Drive Modules. DPN 18THT is compatible with Latitude C series and DPN 5W299 is compatible with Latitude D series. The two drives have different and incompatible connectors.

Your Latitude C640 is a C Series Latitude. You can therefore not use DPN 5W299.

If you need a DVD drive module, get DPN 18THT or an alternative Latitude C series drive.
