Re: Dvd/CD drive only plays CDs

Also try to reinstall the software for the CD/DVD drive...
If the installer won't read the CD/DVD from the drive then try to download from -

Also try to delete the upper and lower filters from the registries...
Start>run> regedit
SYSTEM\ on the +
CurrentControlSet\ on the +
Control\Class\ on the +
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} on the folder
Then look for the upper and lower filters on the right side. Once you find it, right click then delete.

If it won't work then try to start up the computer using the windows cd and try to reinstall OS.
If it still won't work after reinstalling the windows, go ahead and replace the CD/DVD drive.

My gateway laptop's dvd/cd drive stopped working, all of a sudden, but it plays music cds, it is just the DVDs that don't play them or even explore... what could it be the problem? how do i solve it? it...

Are you sure yours is a DVD player? It could only be a CD-CD writer, which will NOT play DVDs.
Open your control panel ->system->hardware->device manager and click on the DVD/CD-ROM drives icon. The listed devices will tell you if you really have a dvd player or not. If you do really have a dvd player, try a different dvd

DVDs/CDs no longer play on my laptop

You can try cleaning the pickup lens with a cotton swab or cloth. Be careful not to damage anything. Also try a different DVD to verify the disks integrity.
Good luck.

HP Pavillion not reading audio CD

It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.
