    dear sir/madam
    I have a problem with my Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-830sx,sometimes it read dvd or cd's sometime not,sometime it shows blank CD/DVD and sometimes shows no disc inserted,few months earlier i had write some DVD's at that time it played all DVD but now it fails to play that DVD's(show no disk inserted).
    But it read all original DVD and CD's,several times i cleaned my DVD ROM but the problem is still same.
    So i wanna know the reason of such problem.

    I have a go video/dvd/vcr combo unit. I've recorded on memorex & sony dvd's but haven't finalized the dvd yet and it reads it but months later I go to play what I've recorded and it can't read the dvd. It gives me an error "unknown disk" or to "initialize disk all over again" If I do this it will erase what's on the disk but when it reads the disk there is nothing recorded. I don't know if it's the brand I'm using or if it's the drive that is the problem. I've already cleaned the machine so I don't know if my machine can be repaired or if it's a disk problem?

Hello melo21,this is nichu,
can you tell me the manufacturer name
of your DVD writer or reader. some times this problem persists if the discs u ae installing are not of good quality or else the lens of your DVD writer or reader might be a bit older resulting in poor reading capability of your DVD writer or reader .
alwas avoid inserting scratched discs which results a longlasting duration for your DVD writer or reader. take care
bye

Buy a CD/DVD-Player Laser-Lens Cleaner. They are pretty cheap. Usually under $10. If that doesn't fix it then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.

My cd drive will read cds but wont read as a burner


Not all Inspirons have CD burners (the 4 factory options were CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, and DVD/CD-RW. You can confirm that via Windows Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and double click on DVD/CD-ROM drives to see what model drive you have, then just Google it to see what it's capable of.

In case you have either a CD-RW type drive or a DVD/ CD-RW drive and it doesn't want to burn CD's , then it's a bad drive.

My cd rom is not reading or even showen


try to clean it with cd cleaner. after that try your known good cd maybe its just the cd/dvd that has the problem. if still doesn't work try using cd first then dvd. because some combo drive fail to read cd but can read dvd or vice versa. also check for the cd or dvd speed, type and class.
