This is likely a bad dvd drive. Usually when a DVD drive is going bad, it will first stop reading DVDs, but will read CDs just fine. I have replaced many drives that were having the same issue and with a new drive, problem is solved. It is a typical problem with DVD drives.

The vostro 1510's cd/dvd drive is just ridiculous in general. I always have trouble with mine, cd's get stuck all the time, my recommendation would be that u get a new laptop...

After formatting my dell vostro 1510 DVD drive will not read or play DVD discs


If you reinstalled Windows from the Dell-provided "System Restore" CD/DVD disks, you should be able to play DVD disks.

If you reinstalled Windows from some "other" Windows disks, you should be able to view the files/folders on any DVD-disk, but you will be lacking the software to properly "decode" those files, and to "play" the content.

Restart your computer and enter set up bios. Try ejecting your dvd rom from there... it that doesn't work, get a pin and insert it in the pinhole on the dvdrom whuile pressing the eject button... that should do the trick!

Dell vostro 1510 refuses to handle DVDs


Many times the drive itself is going bad and will stop recognizing dvds first and then eventually will quit reading cds. That would be my bet. I have replaced dvd drives that were doing the same thing and the problem was solved. If it is under warranty Dell will replace it for free. They may ask you to reload your OS first especially if you are dealing with India, but you can lie and say you already did that.

Sony NEC OptiArc can't read but can write!!!


Try to play the cd that you have wrote with other machine if it was able to read with other machine then your dvd is faulty.

If it cannot play with other machine, then there is a problem with the software that you use in cd writing or the dvd rom drive. Try to re-install both drivers, then play a cds.
