Re: problems

You have a jammed disk - that sometimes happens, and requires that the case be opened, and the disk manually removed.

When I press the bottin on the dvd burner to open the door, the green light comes on and i would hear the door try to open but no open.

yes frn this is happen due to the jam in the DVD rom. when you press the eject button put one pin in the hole that is just below the eject button. so that you can eject your DVD. or just hit the cd ROM slowly.

Hp dvd/rw does not read discs

If the CD or DVD disks you inserted work in some other reader, then your reader is the problem -- even though it is properly connected to your computer, and Windows has the correct device-drivers, it is the "hardware" that is the problem.

When you insert a disk, rotate it to some position, i.e., top-lettering goes in first, and close the drawer. Do you hear the drive start to spin the disk? Open the drawer. Is the disk in the same (non-rotated) position? If so, then the motor that spins the disk is the problem. If the disk does spin, but nothing happens, then it is the "laser" part of the mechanics that is not working.

Replace it.

DVD Door Won't Open

I have this problem with my DVD rom too. I don't know if we have the same ones or not. I took mine apart to try and diagnose the problem, and it turns out that there was this thing inside that wasn't dropping down all the way to allow the tray to slide out, it was staying locked in place.
I was unable to find a cure for this.
However, I found that when I press the button to open the DVD rom, when it fails to open, I give the top of mt computer a slap, and it un-locks the mechanism and the DVD tray slides out properly.
I hope this helps.

How to get the drive to open?

I have a Memorex 52x CD burner. It bought it new and had no problems until about a year after I purchased it. Then suddenly, for no obvious reason, the drive would not open. The light flashed and I could hear the gears trying to open, but it would not consistently open. If I repeatedly pushed the button, eventually it would open.

What I finally discovered is that as long as I keep a disc in the drive, it will open and close with no problems. Now I keep a blank CD in the drive at all times, and so far the problem has stopped. I suggest keeping a blank CD in the drive so you don't lose a "real" CD forever (or have to destroy the burner to get it out). I don't know if this will work for everyone.

I DO NOT suggest inserting a credit card as another poster suggested. I tried this and it DOES NOT work. Plus you risk breaking the drive and destroying your credit card all at the same time (thereby delaying the purchase of a new one). Besides, credit card simply doesn't fit into the very small space around the tray door.

Based on other people's comments and the problems I've experienced, I'd suggest that people avoid buying Memorex products altogether. I bought this drive because my old one died and I was looking for a cheap burner to hold me over until I could afford to replace my computer. I may have saved a little money, but in the end I got what I paid for. My sympathies to anyone who's also experienced this problem.

Laptop dvd drive door will not open

update the firm ware for this drive if that is possible. This will rewrite the eprom data and hopefully restore lost functionality.

Won't even read cd's- autostart fails...

There are two lasers, one for CDs, other for DVDs. Sounds like the CD read (and possibly Write) laser is worn out, or defective. Time for a new drive. DVDs will be fine, because they don't use the other laser at all.
