Question about Dell XPS M1530 Laptop

Disc drive not functioning.

My disc drive has suddenly stopped working. It won't let me access any disc I put in, the disc will not show in My Computer, but It will let me play game discs. It knows the game is in there, as when I click on the game without it in, it says insert CD. I no, my computer takes no notice, but the game works! My computer is a Dell XPS M1530

    Insert a disk.

    Open "My Computer".

    Does the "label" of the inserted disk appear underneath the icon for the CD-drive?



    Some games that say "insert CD" are poorly-programmed;

    if you say "no", then the game just continues to function.

DVD drive won't recognize discs


Does your cd drive show up in my computer?
for a game disc, you dont need any codecs at all to run it. those are for recognizing certain formats of video and audio usually found in downloaded musics and movies. let me know.

Drive cant write any disc


If the unit was working ok and suddenly the unit stop to read the blank disk, the problem could be related to a dirty lector (need to clean) or unit firmware (need to be updated)
In that case you can update your firmware here:

***************************************************************************************
Remember

1) You have to use a blank "recordable disk" to allow your drive write a disk
2) Not all disks are compatible
3) Try differents brand
4) Clean your drive lector
5) Update your firmware

LAPTOP DVD DRIVE WONT PLAY DVDS ANYMORE


Drive is on its way. Typical behaviour. Try air dusting lens but unlikely to fix it. Very easy diy repair and cheap. EBay the new disc drive or refurbished. Then go to youtube. Nearly all laptop drives are the same to replace no matTerry brand. You could even get a faster drive.
