My dell laptop inspiron 1501 not burning or reading cds


Please try with any bootable disk,if the system is not booting with the disk then the issue is with the ODD and it needs to be replaced(be sure that first boot device is cdrom in BIOS).

If booting then go to device manager and uninstall the cd/dvdROM drive and secondary IDE controllers and restart the system twice and check.

If fails then lens went bad and CD ROm drive needs to be replaced.

Cd rom

replace the CD Rom, they are available on the net. You may pay $35-$50 and you'll be home free. You may even find an updrade i.e. DVD burner, etc. They are also very easy to replace - one screw on the bottom of laptop and just pull the CD unit out.
