Playing PC DVD roms problem

I have a problem, my lg dvd drive in my pc won't run ANY PC DVD roms but will play PC CD ones. Ive tried un installing them, updating them, cleaning them, rolling the updates back, everything i can think of. So far it;s only games and DVD recoradable discs but haven't tried any DVD Movie discs. Sorry i couldn't provide much info, im not very knowledgeable about this stuff. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Re: playing PC DVD roms problem

Dvd drives can read from both DVD and CD however due to technological limitations most DVD-ROM or RAM read up to slightly higher speeds for CDs than DVDs.

When burning DVDs professional companies that make prerecorded disks burn their disk at low speeds in an effort to achieve both compatibility and low errors, that is the reason their DVDs play on most DVD-ROMs. However DVDs me and you burn at home and work at high speeds are prone to errors and incompatibility with low reading speed drives.

As a result if your DVD-ROM has a low maximum reading speed then it can only read those prerecorded DVDs and only DVDs recorded at low speeds provided thre are not scratched.

I believe you managed to read those DVD movies if they were pre recorded.

We have LG DVD Combo Drive in our Desk Top PC where in Drive can Play CD but can not Play DOV or can not dispay contents on any DVD Inserted. Please Help Thanks Krishna Bikes Pvt Ltd.

In this case the laser for the dvd has died. This can't be fixed, you must replace the entire drive - a new dvd-rw will cost you less than $30.

NEW gcc-h23n will not read anything

If not reading DVD is a pattern (it won;t read ANY DVD, no matter if it's a burned one or an original movie) then the lens is dead. I'm afraid you'll have to go get a new one (new drives are very cheap, usually around 25-30$)

Reads all but DVD-Help PLEASE

When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks? If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD. If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD. Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
