Option One:
To fix it, open “My Computer”, or “Windows Explorer”, find the drive icon for your CD/DVD player/burner and right-click on it. When the popup menu opens, choose, “Properties”. Click on the “Auto Play” tab. Click on “Select an Action to Perform”. Click on the “Restore Defaults” button and click on the “Apply” button. Then click on “Prompt me each time to choose an action” and click on the “Apply” button again. (Note: If you want it to open in a particular program each time you put in your music CD, instead of clicking on “Prompt me…” choose the program you want it to open each time you put in your CD. Now click on “Apply” and “OK” and restart your computer. Now put in a music CD and see if it works as it should.

Can lite-on-ltn4865 48x play dvd movies


If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

Emachine W6409. will play cd. will not play dvd.


sounds to me like you have a cd-rom drive and not a cd-r/dvd rom drive? are you sure it is a cd-r/dvd rom drive? If its not it won't play DVD's because CD drives use a different codec than DVD rom drives do. CD-r/dvd drive combos use the same codec though as one.

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.
