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.

Kenwood cd player - Since i used an ipod, it comes up error 5, and wont let me play a CD in the car, or any other Ipod. Any ideas on how to reboot the player, or get it working.

According to experts, error 5 on the player means that the player is reading the cd upside down or it cannot read the disc. you may need to run a cd cleaner ten check if it can read the cd again or if not you may need to take the player apart to clean it manually.

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.
