Re: Not reading DVD

Hi shahu,

to play DVDs, you need to have Media Player prepared for it, not only the hardware drivers. Install a DVD player (as Power DVD, for example) and that's it.

Re: Not reading DVD

If your any dvd is not working that mean there would be
most common problem with following thing

1) Try to reinstall your operating system to recover your DVD driver files.

2) change the data cable of the DVD becouse if cable got fault it won't work(data cable on end is connected to dvd and other -to mother board )

3)if still problem is there then you have to change your DVD's Lense.

Ihv inserted the DVD in the slot..the disk is nt being read

You didn't mention if the dvd was working before or it's new.

Now, you have 2 options to try:
1) Try to open the same DVD on other DVD-Reader. If it was read, then the dvd is unreadable on your laptop, because it's bad, or the DVD-Reader have problems, OR

2) Try other DVD on your laptop, if it was read, then your DVD-Reader can't read all types of DVDs, if not, then the dvd is bad
Tell Us your results, please
Good Luck

After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.

Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty

Toshiba satellite a65-s1762 dvd-ram drive problems

Take the laptop *and* your DVDs/CDs to a qualified technician.
It seems like the drive is "intermittently" failing, and needs to be replaced.

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N. Can not write to DVD

The DVD -R +R means that you can read these types of DVDs that have been created elsewhere, it doesn't mean you can write to your DVD under the format of -R or +R. The CD is a CDRW which means you can read and write to CDs.

I don't think that a factory Satellite P100 has the ability to write to either DVD -R or +R, but to only CDs. I have a P200 that has a DVD -R +R/CDRW and it can't write DVDs. These DVDs you put in are for read only. My Toshiba A215 can but it's a DVDRW/CDRW.

DVD rom drive

It sounds like the drive itself is faulty. Since you've reformatted, it obviously isn't a software problem. CDs and DVDs are read by two different lasers so its not uncommon for one disc not to be read yet the other is just fine which seems to be the case. A new one can be purchased for under $40.
