One works to read/write DVD media.
So, your device is "half-broken".
Replace it.

I CANNOT GET MY CD TO READ AND BURN A CD.....DVD


Try using a good quality dvd cleaner. The cd lens could be dirty causing cd funstions not to work. There is a different lens for the dvd so it's highly possible that one function will work but not the other if dirty. If this does not work you may have a lens that has become disoriented. If this is the case then with todays priced, decent dvd/cd burner for under $40 it would be cheaper to replace the drive than attempt to repair. Good luck & I hope this helps.

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.

Boot error, won't even boot with xp cd


hi.
you might wanna check if your XP is a dvd or cd. if it is a dvd your cd drive can not read dvd cd's. if it is a cd than your cd/dvd drive is not working. another thing you can do is to take out your cd/dvd drive and plug it back in. to see if it works. if the drive is working, you can try a different XP CD to see if it is working. if it is still doing the same thing. you might wanna check your hard drive to see if it works.

hope that helps.
thanks.
