There are 2 assemblies inside it.
One works to read/write CD media.
One works to read/write DVD media.
So, your device is "half-broken".
Replace it.

Sounds like you have done all you possibly can, it may well be that the drive has finally given up and a replacement is neccasary. You can try to repair the autorun .inf file, but i think a replacement. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=C680A7B6-E8FA-45C4-A171-1B389CFACDAD&displaylang=en Sorry!

SOURCE: How do I install a DVD drive as well as my CD-RW?

mst...First, get your manual out. the drive must be set to be a secondary device unless it is not. You say you have only one IDE...did you remove the CDR? If you have a second IDE or other board connector, then this drive is primary on that. Now, did you install the drivers for the unit? You can use your CDR to do that or get them from the website of the manufacturer. Are there any bent pins on either the motherboard or the back of your drive? Somewhere in there is an answer.

If you have only one drive connector set, you can get a board which will allow you to setup additional drives. Ask your dealer.

The device is _partially_ broken -- the part that reads/writes DVD media is "dead".

Spend $40 to purchase a new CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the "dead" unit.

Hello,

the laser (lens) of the Rom is very weak, that's why it cannot read DVD discs. DVD discs are usually larger that CD's and it takes an active lens to play DVD disc.

So if its still under warranty, you can return it, if not, get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens of your ROM.

Good luck.

My SONY DRU-810A DVD Writer doesn't work with TDK DVD+RW Disc


some dvd brands dont work with all dvd writers, so your option is to try another make, if that works ok then it's not a writer fault it is just that the media make is not compatable. if you start to see problems with all makes of disc then the writer laser is faulty and a replacement drive neccasary.
