Dell Inspiron E1505 CD/DVD Drive reads only dell disks.

The drive stopped reading disks but can be found on my computer. I finally put in one of the dell disks that came with the computer and it read that one and worked just fine. I did all the updates dell told me would help, but it still wont read any other disks.
Help Please...

If the driver didnt fix your problem, your disk drive might be faulty , maybe the problem is on the disk drives lens this is very common problem 2 any other cd/dvd rom drives.

I was working on a Dell Latitude D810 for a customer. It had the new Zimuse trojan and I was trying to get a reload started after getting the data off with a boot key, but it would not read any thing I put it in it. Thinking it was a hardware issue( I did not know about the Zimuse yet) I popped a Dell diagnostic disk in and omg it ran. Read all Dell disks after reload but nothing else. I updated bios, IDE controller drivers, and flashed the drive firmware. Still nothing but dell. Found this post. Popped the Philips diskcleaner from Wally World and bang. It reads everything. Dell must have a special "Dell Dirty Disk" routine in the bios where it reads a subpar data line over and over till it picks up the track. How about a Probably dirty lens message!

It's asking you for a password to access the BIOS. You or someone entered a password to access the BOIS (setup screen). The original problem you're having is "Disk Read Error". If you have the CD's that came with your laptop, look for a Resource CD or any that has "Utilities and Diagnostics" under "Contents". This is a CD that you can boot from. Insert the CD and select <F12> on power on. Select boot from CD/DVD disk. If the laptop boots then your laptop is working but your hard disk drive or OS (Operating system software) is the problem.

0F00:136C IDE device failed:blank media or no media is present in optical drive


read failure of the CD\DVD drive. If you were running diagnostics and have no readable media in the drive, that is a NORMAL result.
If you have readable media in the drive, try reseating the drive and try to read again. If the media is not a factory burned CD, try a factory burned one.
See if you can boot to an Windows CD.
If all the above fail, then likely a drive failure, replace the drive

My cd/dvd driver wont read any disc?


First clean the CD/DVD head by cd/dvd cleaner. If that doesnt work then probably you will need to get its read write head aligned or get the drive changed totally.

I put a dvd in my dell inspiron 1150 combo dvd cd andit will not


Uninstall the program and reinstall it,
maybe the disk with the drivers will solve your problem,
if no disk download the drivers from www.dell.com

or try the manufacturer ofr the dvd drive for the drivers too

also what Service Pacxks do you have installed on this machine
XP will need at least SP2 for some of you high speed devices ie usb2.0

Good Luck MISTERDJ

My cd dvd drive can't read disks


Try a damp q-tip with glass cleaner and gently wipe off the laser of the drive. This will make sure there is no dust or dirt affecting the laser.

If this doesn't do the trick then the drive is bad and would need to be replaced.
