It is your dvd drive lense issue .If your computer is in warrenty take it to service shop they replaced dvd drive or lense.
If it is not in warrenty you need to repalce or repair dvd drive lense.

Also you can try 1 more thing pur chase disk cleaner disk and put it in dvd drive then play then it clean dust from dvd drive then check .

Hello, I have Sony Vaio laptop model VGN-FS515, my internal cd -rom is not working, I've tried to reinstall computer's system from my external cd/dvd -rom, but can't do it because my BIOS doesn't support...


It sounds like you have done your homework, I suggest checking out ebay for a replacement for your CD-ROM, new would be better, but if you want to save money you might be able to scoop up a good used one at a cheap price.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.

Dvd drive in dell does not work


depending on the drive it can be your upper and lower registry filters, use this link at your own risk and whenever you work in regedit, make sure you create a recovery point before hand!

Is the CD drive display in my computer? yes

then clean up your CD/DVD rom for there is dust in it, specially on the lazer lens that let the rom read the CD/DVD.

If no, then; Fix some cable connection towards your CD/DVD rom for it was lessen.

If not fix the problem verify the disc if it is readble by your Rom. Please try another disc in your Rom.

if same happen, then maybe its time for a new CD/DVD ROM.

one last try:

try your new purcahse disc in another computer that is compatible with your disc.
