Try using different software to play the DVD. the default DVD player software may be corrupt


also if you have an old DVD player and new game or movie it MAY not play it

Why won't cds play in the dvd-rw?


Nathaniel, DVD RW have the capability of playing any CD. If you are facing problem then either:

a) Your CD is not right or has too much scratches on it.
b) Your DVD RW Lens has gotten a bit weak. Clean your DVD RW lens and then give it a try.

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

Did a system restore of compaq presario 5000 computer. cd/dvd player will not play gaming cds


See if it would play regular cd, then see if it would play dvd's. The reason is because most gaming cd now and days are dvd's and maybe your dvd-rom has a driver issue or the laser head isn't reading it. So try that first, then see if the drivers for the cd/dvd rom is working properly in the device manager. It may need a dvd coded software, try installing like powerdvd or something. If it still ain't working, and it can't play dvd's then your cd-drive could be history

Compaq R4000 failed to open the window - how to fix the problem?


I had the same problem with mine. There is an option of "repairing" on the recovery disc that actually keeps all files and software intact. It worked for me, much better than the full re-format of the hard drive and new install of the OS.

Dvd drive


You might try unistalling the drivers and reinstalling them from the device manager. However, this sounds like a harware issue, your DVD drive may be shot.

Playing DVD's


Have you checked to see if your drive isnt too full. This can be the problem why it has only just started. I bet if you got rid of some of your films in that machine watching a DVD from the ROM would be a pleasure. I know my sister has that problem and refuses to part with her films so she has to watch here DVD on another machine because she too has to many videos in her laptop. The poor machine and CPU is working overdrive and the RAMS too.
