What player are you using? Also make sure there is no dvd zone restrict for your dvd reader. Try playing dvds using power dvd... if it doesn't work, use neros diagnostic tool, or try reinstalling it's drivers...

SOURCE: I CANNOT GET MY CD TO READ AND BURN A CD.....DVD

Try using a good quality dvd cleaner. The cd lens could be dirty causing cd funstions not to work. There is a different lens for the dvd so it's highly possible that one function will work but not the other if dirty. If this does not work you may have a lens that has become disoriented. If this is the case then with todays priced, decent dvd/cd burner for under $40 it would be cheaper to replace the drive than attempt to repair. Good luck & I hope this helps.

Optical drives vary in their capability:
* read CD
* read CD and read DVD
* read/write CD
* read/write CD and read DVD
* read/write CD and read/write DVD

What capabilities are available on your "Super Multi" drive?

What software are you using to try to create/burn CD/DVD disks?

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

The laser that reads (or "burns") has failed.
Spend $30 to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.

Teac DW-224E-c - cannot burn DVD's


The answer is what you profess. The drive can burn CD's, read CD's and also read DVD's. Everytime I try and burn a DVD I have an unrecognized drive and the properties always show no disk: The drive burns CD's ie;music, but cannot burn DVD it can only read DVD like you say!
