Reading discs I bought this dvd rw drive for my dad as the drive in his laptop had broken. We can easily transfer data to the dvd but cant actually read whats on there without coming out of the program and right clicking on start menu then explore the E drive. Is there a simple way to read the disc through the roxio programme?

    Thanks, my Dad refuses to use the internet so he probably has hundreds of updates due. I will try to persuade him tomorrow.

It is a failure of the Windows Explorer that arises from time to time with removable drives. After a couple automatic updates the problem should vanish itself.

Data on a read only cdrw cannot be deleted from a Comaq pressario running widows xp


Dear sir,
your Comaq DVD drive is only a DVD R(Read) drive? or its RW(Read Write) drive.
If its simply DVD drive then it cant write or erase CD content. If its RW then you can. just use NERO software.

Can lite-on-ltn4865 48x play dvd movies


If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

My dvd-ram working fine with cd but when i put dvd-rw nothing happend!


In that case either the disk is an incompatible model (it happens - try another brand) or the dvd laser has died - in that case you must replace the entire dvd-ram unit.

Powerbook will not read or write a fresh dvd-rw


You cannot write onto a dvd-rw that has been formatted for Windows using a Mac Superdrive. Most likely, when you put the dvd-rw into a Windows machine w/Visa, you erased it, but actually it formatted the disc for Fat32 or other Windows format. Mac's are often brand-sensitive often when it comes to DVD. I've had luck with Memorex and HP, or Apple has their own which will work (from an Apple Store or Best Buy.)

Trying to burn photos from dell laptop to DVD-RW blank disc . "error - no disk in drive"


Try another disc first ,if no luck than try another disc manufacturer. If it does not help check if you can play anything from this drive if no, check drive connection in your laptop you can also can check BIOS settings for this DVDRW drive and settings for IDE or Sata data transfer mode make shure it works in Ultra DMA not PIO mode. Be carefull with BIOS Setup!!! If nothing helps replace drive. Good Luck!

Windows cant complete format on dvd-rw drive. it reads disks okay but doesnt want to format rw disks that used to work.


you canot format a used disc, because its only good for a one time use unless youre using a disc rw again and again. There you can do that.

Dvd problem


i think it might be software related if your lucky and not a hardware problem.

what you should try is update your dvd drives firmware which should be listed on your manufactures website, if not (which is most cases) use google by typing in 'make model firmware' (the actual word firmware not yours)

good luck
