Inside the Control Panels, look for System. Double-click System and choose Device Manager. Inside Device Manager, find the CD/DVD and "Uninstall" the device. Restart the computer and let it re-load the driver. This might help. You can also try a CD/DVD laser lens cleaner.

The player will read dvd but will not play cd

Richard: This is what said: "
  • Turn on the DVD player. It generally takes a few seconds to get going. Take out the DVD if there's one in the drive already.
  • 2 Make sure the disc isn't scratched or dirty. Use a soft rag to clean the disc if you see any smudges. Insert the CD into the DVD player's disc drive and close it.
  • 3 Press the "Play" button on the DVD player or remote control. Some DVD players will begin reading the disc automatically. Pushing the button works just as well.
  • 4 Use the "Scene Selection" buttons on your remote to select a track. Some DVD players have odd ways of ordering the buttons on the remote. You might have to play around a bit before you find all the right buttons to work the CD playing function of your machine.
  • 5 Crank it up and enjoy your music. The DVD player will act just like a CD player and play the tracks of the CD through the TV.

    My IBM R51 laptop can't read any other cd/vcd


    its either its a lens problem or that was how the CD/DVD Drive was made.

    There are some drives that doesn't play white face discs, that is, they select disc and don't play all CD's, so maybe yours fall under this category.

    How long have you been using your laptop and has it ever played Cd/Vcd's before?

    If it plays them before, then it means your drive's lens is weak, but if it has never played them before, then it means that's how the player was made.

    Which ever way, you still have an option of replacing the drive if you wish.

    Take care.

    Playing dvd's

    It sounds like your computer is missing a DVD decoder software.  Witout this little thing, the drive will not work.  Try getting a program like Win DVD or Cyberlink Power DVD they are very cheap, and work well.  If this does not work, try updating both the drivers and the firmware.

    Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

    Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.

    Dvd writer wont accept dvd-r

    If you have posted the correct model of writer, then it only supports the writing of DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, but CD-R and CD-RW disc writing are supported, and it should play all forms of DVD, so it won't burn DVD-R and RW discs, but if it wont play all types then try a cd/dvd cleaner, but to be honest when writers start playing up the lens is normally faulting and a replacement drive will be required.
