My DVD drive can read a CD-ROM and play an audio CD, but it cannot play a DVD in xp

Hi, In this case since you are able to play CD's and audio CD's using the CD drive and unable to play on DVD's firstly make sure that it is a DVD readable drive and in case you were able to read DVD's this is an issue with the DVD drive itself.This issue would mainly occur because of the spindle head in the drive going faulty.In case the computer or drive is covered by warranty please do contact your drive/computer manufacturer and get the repair done under warranty or else if not covered by warranty please contact a local technician to have the repair performed. Thank you for your patience and best wishes for your effort.

I have never burned a CD. I have need of burning two tonight. What do I do?

are you burning a cd or dvd? burning a cd is pretty will do most of the work for you. put a blank cd in your cd rom/ dvd burner drive. it will ask you what you want to do with the blank usually asks you to format the ok.....a blank box will pop up....drag and drop your files to be burned into the blank box.....once you are done putting your media onto the disc....eject the disk...before the drive opens a box at the bottom of the screen says that the disc is being prepared for use on other computers. when it ejects, it should be can try to put it back in to the cd drive and see if your data/media files are on the disc. burning a dvd is alot more you have software for burning dvd media? if you do, they have help me files and tutorials........some more good also shows good tutorial vids on burning. just type in "burn a cd or dvd".

My cd/dvd drive will not burn cd/dvd's properly. it goes through the motions, but the discs come out as blank, i was able to burn cds at 2x speed, but that was it. any movie, or anything else will go...

what kind of application you use for burning??

try it again then double check if you really choose the right path of th drive you want to use as burner..

then you are sure that you burn the music as audio cd not data well as the video cd not data cd..

because if you burn data cd only computers can read that.. not your aplliances like for example your dvd player,cd,etc.

Laptop is not able to Read/Write CD/DVD

Have you tried using an disc optical lens cleaner? Try that first. Unfortunately, these things do just quit sometimes, just like Hard Drives. You may have to just resort to using external usb drive or replace the internal drive.

Try to put new cd or dvd that you know the other PC can read.May be the one your putting on has file that had been corrupt.

Try cleaning the Optical lens with Q tips dip in alcohol(isopropyl).

Open the device manager and Uninstall the CD/DVD drive from device manager.and let the windows force install it.

Problems burning cd's using my memorex dvd multi recorder 16x

It can be CD-blank media problem. Try another brand or if you use CD-RW try to use CD+RW.
Also try to use simulation mode. If it works fine it can be CD-blank media problem.
Good Luck

Acer aspire 5102 with philips sdvd8821 dvdram drive

alright. bubul78, your post is in no way shape or form a solution for the problems given by other users. I too have a acer laptop with the philips dvd drive in it, device manager detects the dvd reader and says it is running with no problems. i can hear the drive read the cd when inserted, tho when trying to access the drive through my computer the window hangs at the hourglass for a min or so, then says please insert a cd. only solution is that something is physically wrong with the drive. ok so solution found, replace the cd drive. but where is acers sight to order replacement parts? poor site navigation in my opinion.
