Question about Dell Studio Slim-Tower Desktop Computer

1 Answer

DVD/CD burner/player does not read, play or burn.

I have a Dell Studio Slim 5405, running VISTA.The cd/dvd player ( DVD+RWTS H653F ATA Device) suddenly quit working- wouldn't read, play or burn. DELL online Help guided me through uninstalling everything back to factory level. Did this. It still doesn't work- and now I can't reinstall any of my programs!

DVD burner or writer is a device where you can write a blank cd or dvd for data,music and videos format and also you can play or read your favorite cd or dvd mp3, audio cd and videos format. For burning you must have nero, alcohol and other burning application. In windows xp, vista and 7 are already included, simply drag your data or files you want to burn to you cdrom drive with blank cd or dvd.Then there is a button burn, click that button to write the files onto your cd or dvd. Have a nice day!

Tsstcorp cddvdw ts-h653f ata device doesn't read the cd/dvds. It says no cd is detected insert and try again although the cd/dvd is already in


No solution yet? I think I have the same problem. Dell Inpiron 530 with same drive. I think my problem is hardware failure as Microsoft disk application can't fix, Dell diagnostics suggests hardware problem. Still I tried deleting drivers so windows would reinstall. Even tried going into regedit to no effect. Just can't read what is in drive. CD/DVD does not make the usual disc spinning sound.

I think I'm screwed. Warrenty ran out November 2010. Was having problems before that, but I failed to act on it. From searching internet, this drive may be a dud. Mine failed in less than a year.

My PIONEER DVDRW DVR-K15 ATA Device read cd no DVD


have you had any virus infections? I would download malware bytes and rootkit revealer to see if you have any viruses or rootkits you should email me at cringer.smith@gmail.com
and you might have a rootkit that is causing issues with the dvd read/write. otherwise a failing device.
you could also burn puppylinux on a cd, run it and see if you can pop in a dvd and see if it reads the media. if so you are looking at a windows software file or virus issue.
