Take a damp q-tip with glass cleaner and gently wipe the laser in the drive. This will ensure there is no dust or dirt particles getting in the way of the laser reading the discs.

If you still can't get your drive to read dvd's, cd's, music discs, etc. Then that means the laser is to weak and the drive is bad. You would have to replace the drive, if the laptop is under warranty then go that route to try and get it replaced if it comes down to that. If its not under warranty then try a quick search on Ebay and see where that gets you.

Hi there


Will first of all is it a dvd rom/ cd rom drive or just a dvd rom, because you cant use cds in dvd drives! Second of all, make sure your driver is fully updated, it might be missing something that it needs that will fix the problem after you update it!

Help with my cd player/burner


There could be several things which are causing your CD burner not to act in the way it should.

I had a similar type problem after installing Windows XP, .Service Pack 3 onto my Sony VAIO model VGN-SZ330P.
The standard Windows burner kept saying there was no CD in the drive but it would play both CDs and DVDs.

I went looking for an alternative and now use IMGBURN which is a free lightweight CD / DVD / HD DVD / Blu-ray burning application . You can find it at http://www.imgburn.com/.

I also installed CDBurnerXP which is another free application to burn CDs and DVDs, including Blu-Ray and HD-DVDs. It also includes the feature to burn and create ISOs, as well as a multilanguage interface. You can find it at http://cdburnerxp.se/en/home

The above does not tell you why your burner is having problems (and they could be numerous), it will certainly get the burner doing everything you need.

My new DVD player will play all CDs except the ones I burned on my laptop. Why is this and how can I get the DVD player to play those CDs? when I record a dvd on my lap top it will allow me to play it...


Hi,
it,s one of 2 things.
1:) your recording MP3 to CD. Only recognised on a PC, or MP3 Player. The standard CD Format Is WAV.
If you burn with Nero. you should have a tickbox Which Says ( Normalise all audio Files )
2:) the disk is not finalised. Closed having written the T.O.C Table-Of Contents. this is to allow the reader viewing it, what is actually written on the disk.
