Your notebook does not see the proper boot files on your C drive. Many times the boot.ini has been corrupted.
You will need a Windows XP Install CD mounted in the CD Rom. When you boot the system you need to choose the CD as the boot device (if the notebbok does not do it by default) then typr R to enter the recovery console. Once you get the C: prompt you will need to create a new boot.ini file using the bootcfg command. See the following website for details in using the Recovery Console:

SOURCE: Msi a6200 won't read ANY discs lately.....not sure what or where to start any info would help.

It seems like you have a hardware issue, clean lens with rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip gently, allow several minutes to dry, if no change, remove screw from the bottom where the drive is and take it out, now reseat it back in place, if still the same go to www.ebay.com Type: make and model of laptop, refine search to cd/dvd driver.

Not able to burn dvd


Hello,
Some dvds have different dyes and as such some dvd rws wont recognise them, i had this problem with my new laptop and I only discovered it when i tried to burn back up discs. generally dvdr- are more suited for burning from your computer, you could try using differnt blank dvds AONE and RI-DISC are good discs, if you are unsure ask at your local pc shop ,if your in Glasgow Priceless computing offer good advice and carry a large selection of dvds, I would avoid the pound shop as the quality of their dvds is poor, should the problem persist take the dvdrw back to the shop where you bought it from, I hope that you are lucky.
Have you tried using MAGIC DVD RIPPER ? this is a program that allows you to copy dvds to your hard drive in dvd quality and you can then burn them to disc using nero, you get a free trial of this program from magicdvdripper, its good if you rent a dvd and want to keep a copy, anyway please let me know how you get on.

Best wishes.

Cant get DVD's to play


Try cleaning off the laser of the dvd drive with a damp q-tip. This will make sure there is no specs of dust or dirt on the laser.

If it sill plays cd's but not dvd's then that means the laser is bad cause it takes more power from the laser to read dvds cause there is more information that needs to be verfied.

So if the laser is bad that means the drive you bought was defective. Try a bunch of different dvds to be sure you don't have any that are bad.

If your getting it with any dvd your putting in there then you know you need to get another drive.

I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).

Not recognising dvd player/not playing dvds


Sounds like the laser pick-up is not reading the disc, or the spindle motor is not spinning so the dvd can be read.

Philips DVD+RW SDVD8820 does not recognise burned CD or DVDs


it could be upper and lower filters in registry and system files, use a removal tool called filtercheck 4.6 in CDR-zone.com (goto the forums and search for filtercheck)
after you downoad, run it, click yes to all filters found to remove. close program.

reinstall your preferred burning app (1 prog installed at a time and test burn)
this is to replace the filter entry that was corrupt
