My cd/dvd player do not open cd or dvd automatically and I must go to my computer to open up the cd or dvd. Sometimes it ask if I want to format the cd even if it is an original

Your DVD player does not recognize the format that is put into the disc and so does not read.
When it is put into the PC , it might ask for formatting but is not possible when it is a only read disc.
So check the format you have recorded to be acceptable to the player .

Hi. I recently bought a Sony CDP-CX355. Until a few days ago it was working fine. Suddenly, the player stopped reading the discs. It grabs a disc as if its going to play it, but just reads it, and then...

This happens when your laser is not able to read the data of the disc. Either u are using disc which the player cannot read or the disc is not readable. If your CD player is not reading the discs which it used to read earlier then CD player laser head has to be replaced.

When I want to copy a CD must I only record on a CD blank disc; i.e. not a DVD

It depends upon what type of data you want to copy onto a CD or DVD.
If you want to copy and play music in a CD player then it needs to be on a CD disc.
If you want to copy and play movie DVDs in a DVD player then it needs to be on a DVD disc.
If you want to backup data files then it can be on either CD or DVD discs (depending upon the amount of data to be stored on the disc - CD holds 700 Mb, single layer DVD holds 4.7 Gb, and dual layer DVD holds 8.5 Gb of data).
A DVD player can read both CDs and DVDs, but a CD player cannot read DVD discs.

Data disk read as blank disk

This may be a reading media incompatibility problem. This does happen with some DVD/CD players.This usually mentioned in the owners manual of the product. You can try looking under the instructions for the operation of the DVD/CD player in the manual. If you cannot find the information there,you can try using the internet search engines for the make and model number of your notebook and the type of DVD/CD discs you are using. Use the search engine for known problems with the use of the media with your type of notebook DVD/CD player. You can also call Lenovo customer support telephone number 1-877-453-6686. Give them the model number of the notebook and ask them for assistance with the problem. Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day!
