Question about Samsung SD 616E (729507925578) Internal DVD Drive

1 Answer

Drive doesn't read DVD's, only CD's

This drive was working fine but now suddenly it's not reading DVD's anymore, it is only able to read CD's. I have a DVD burner in my system and that one is reading all type of discs correctly.

    This has happened to me as well. I didn't use my Samsung DVD for a while, and then went to use it one day, and it did not read the drive at all. Device Manager says it's working fine. I did the whole troubleshoot option, and uninstalled and reinstalled the device driver, and nothing happened. I am now looking at replacing the drive all together.

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

CD/DVD drive on e-Machine T3120 reads disc, but won't write disc!


You can try going to Emachines website and update the drivers for that drive. If that doesnt work, it is possible the drive itself is going bad.

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.
