Check the jumper settings in the back of the drive, by the power cable. Make sure your cd/dvd drive is set to SLAVE, with your primary harddrive as MASTER. Check BIOS settings, specifically your boot order, choose which drive you want to load first (usually HD 0), save and exit.
That's just the basics, though.
Another possibility is that you might just have a paperweight ;)
If so, try another drive.
Hope that helps

I am not able to play my movies recorded dvd but cd is working well, help me,,

Insert a DVD movie.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for your CD/DVD drive, and click "Explore".
If the hardware is working correctly, you should see a list of files & folders.

Search online for the free 'VLC' software for playing DVD-movies. Download it, and install it, to "play" your DVD-movie.

Must sony DDU1615 DVD-ROM be set to region 1 in order to read most DVD Movie on PC. At present it is not set to any region but is hit & miss as to what it will recognize and play. I do not want to...

An easy way to make your computer permanently region free is to install "DVD Region + CSS Free":
Yep, or Any DVD ( from Slysoft, which I've bought. Full price is $40, but it's worth it if you have several DVDs from regions outside of your DVD-ROM. Or you can use VLC (, a freeware media player that will play all DVDs, regardless of region coding. And yes, this is legal. (But it can be buggy)

Dvd/cd drive device properties state drive is

Apart from DVD, dose it recognize other Cd's? If is does then I think the lens for your drive is weak.

And if it is not the lens, then maybe you should uninstall the drive, restart your system and reinstall the drivers for drive.

You could also detach the drive from your system, while the system is shut down, then put on the system back without the drive, allow it to boot, shut down, put back the drive and see if the drive will play DVD this time.

Best wishes
