POSSIBLE solution... (don't shoot the messenger on this one, lol!)

I'm sure you have tried, but have you cleaned your optics lately?

Using a Q-tip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol, and GENTLY rotate the swab across the lens, rotating it in the opposite direction you are wiping. This should "lift" any dust or grime from the lens. I would also clean the tray with a soft lint-free cloth (using an air-can just moves the dirt around, doesn't solve the problem)

Hope this helps!

Hi Kwesi Quincy,

The Optical drive (DVD drive) is present on the right hand side in a Dell Studio 1535 system so please press the eject button next to it and see if that helps. You may refer the attached picture which might help.

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks and Regards.
Kiran Kumar.

My burner won't burn in my dell Studio 1537

Inside the DVD drive is a laser optical eye. This eye get's dirty.

Suggest remove ALL power, then open DVD drive tray. Use a can of compressed air for computers to clean, and aim down towards the bottom of the tray.
(Remove AC adapter {Charger}, and Battery)

Disk cleaners have the tendency to wipe the 'gunk' off, then wipe it back on.

Also make sure you still have burner software. Nothing like going to use the DVD burner one day, only to find the Nero burner software was just a trial.

It's FREE, and NOT a trial.

Plus a DVD drive is mechanical. Wears out over time. Has a 'Life Cycle'.

Just an example. You may find a better price from another reputable dealer.

The DVD drive is held in with ONE screw,

My cd rom drive does not read disks or download software on my computer, it sometimes freezes my computer up and wont restart properly. How can I fix this problem? I have a Dell studio 1535.

You could try any of these steps to check if it could help.

1.) Try to check if your discs would be read in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking. To do so, you can go by pressing F8 at startup and selecting the appropriate option from there. If it does work, then definitely there's a software that's causing the issue on your optical drive. If not, let's move on.

2.) Try to remove upper and lower filters. Depending on your operating system, the steps needed would vary, but I would suggest that you just use Microsoft's Fix-It Utility.

3.) If you have Dell's OEM Operating System disc or their drivers "Resource Disc", you could also try to boot off of it to try to check your CD drive's functionality. To do so, go to F12 during startup [e.g. when the Dell logo comes up] and select the option to boot from the CD/DVD/CDRW drive. That would give you a clear indicator on whether your CD drive is still functional or not since it would not be affected by any software application.
