Hi im having trouble as it wont read CD or DVD


If it is a computer, try rebooting it. If it is a cd/dvd player, check what types of cd/dvd it reads. If you made a cd or dvd, make sure you finalize it so it can be played on other players. God luck!

Cds wont play in dvd-rw player


The only discs that a DVD player is guaranteed to read are DVD discs. Support for CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW may be included, but is by no means guaranteed.

CD-R was designed to be read by an infrared 780nm laser. DVD uses a visible red 635nm or 650nm laser, which aren't reflected sufficiently by the organic dye polymers used in CD-R media. As a result, many DVD players can't read CD-R media. Some DVD players come with two lasers so that they can read CD-R.

But as I have already stated that Most DVDs today have the tendency of playing CDs. So if your DVD player is new then it must have that support. Have a look at the quality of your CDs also.

My Philips dvdr 3450H if i insert a origial dvd says (not supported disk type) HDD work correct only won t read dvd what can i do? thank you


Hi,
You are not alone...Some DVD players especially Philips wont read the DVD s and
then it show no disc..
Just to make sure that such DVD is ok ,you can try to run them on your laptop.If the disc has problem laptop does not read either..
HDD works independently and no relation to DVD reader..if your set has still under warranty ,consult to service they may replace the LASER EYE.. ("cross your finger ! " )...

Just in case,quick remedy ,I recommend to buy a "wet DVD/CD laser cleaner " from any store.it is available even in Walmart..And clean the laser eye at least twice..
YOUR DVD itself should be clean and finger prints free as well....
Hope this helps! Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me

My dvd rom wont play dvd only cd's


DVD/CD players use two different lasers. One to read DVD and one to read CD. Sounds like your DVD laser burned out. Lasers last about as long as light bulbs do.
