    I have the same problem with commercial CD/DVD videos. My DVD-RAM Drive recognizes some DVD videos but not others. On another site a member ended up buying a $16 driver from a dot.com, which he said resolved the problem; but, all I get from HP (since this is a new notebook) is to send it to them for repairs. I am not sure that the E: Drive is the problem, nor does Windows necessarily seem to be the culprit. The DVD videos play fine on a DVD player, they just won't play on my notebook.

    Hi



    I have bought a Packard Bell Easy Note Skype edition from Dixon (Ammen
    Outlet)Netherlands and I have a problem with the Philips DVD ROM. It
    only writes Cds but not DVDs. Its not writing Sony, Moserbaer and other
    branded DVDs. However, I am able to write one brand of local DVD
    available here in the Indian market.

    Its PHILIPS DVD RW SDVD8441 DVD/CD ROM DRIVES



    Please let me know.



    Regards

CDROM CAN NOT READ CD'S Try cleaning the lens using a high grade CD Lens Cleaner. Sony\ACER\BENQ Lens Drives are notorious when it comes to compatibility.

My DVD-Rom is unable to read (detect) any blank DVD.It is reading movie or any other already written DVD,but not a blank one.I am not getting whats wrong with my DVD-Rom.Please help me.


try using nero as explorer may not readily detect blanks.Also ensure the writer is a dvd writer and not just a dvd rom
To ensure compatibilty with the ever increasing range of media, an update to the burner .is usually all that is needed, this is called firmware upgrade
Most drives will read anything, and most burners are
now "all formats", but you may have a burner that is
either one or other, not both, thats to say, your burner
maybe only a "DVD+R/RW" - note the "plus" sign.
whereas your blank media maybe "DVD-R/RW"

It won't see a blank disk or write to it


CD-ROM and DVD-ROM. ROM stands for "Read Only Memory". On the other hand, CD-RW, DVD-RW stand for "Read/Write". So, if the specs of your laptop say that you only have a DVD-ROM, not COMBO or something ending in RW, then you laptop's optical drive is simply not built for writing to discs.

My dvd writer plays disk but when i try to burn movies doesnt let me keeps telling me to insert disk helpi have dvd rom pioneer dvd 115


First check the program you are using has selected the dvd-rom drive on pc.
If its selected and its still a problem then try changing to different brand of blank DVDR . I have used Tuffdisc , Bulkpaq, Datasafe, and Verbatim and few others on similar model Pioneer DVD writer and it works fine.

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

My Philips DVD8421 burner will not recognize a blank DRD-R disc.


Ok, the reason is quite simple. The Philips DVD8421 does not recognise the DVD-R format.Not all DVD/CD burners read all discs. It does recognise DVD+R though. So all you need to do is use these discs instead. This should solve your problem.

Hope that helps.

My dvd burner doesn't burn dvds


You need to check that with blank DVD's you are using compatible with your drive.Because the DVD's may work with your extranal drive but not with your builting drive. If this doen't slove the problem I would recommend using a different burning software other than "sonic record now" and "vista o/s Built-in dvd burner".

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.
