My dv 6500 pavillion hp laptop is not registering dvdr-cdrom in my computer but still spins when rebooting

The drive continues to spin every time you reboot the computer, that is normal.If the drive is not able to read any CD/DVD, it means, either the lens that reads the data has lost its life as the player is aged or the CD/DVD is not properly burnt.
If you encounter the same problem will all DVDs then definitely the DVD player lens is dead that it could not read CD/DVD anymore. Its time to replace the player if the spare is available or you can buy an External DVD player from staples or officemax or from any reputed stores.
My suggestion would be to go for external player, as we dont rely on players always.
Also external players are relatively cheap compared to that of internal spare of laptop.

My dvd player on recognizes original dvds but wont read any burnt dvds...WHY???

most of the laptop dvd drives have slower reading speed(about 2x) and writing speed(about 24x) compare to desktop pc's(about 8x and 52x respectively).
ur problem might have occured if the writing speed by which the cd was burnt might not be compatible with ur dvd player.
try playing dvds which were burnt using laptop dvd writers.
also try changing the modes in which the dvds are burnt.

Cd rom is not reading CDs

1) The CD you're trying may be defective or empty. Try a different CD, one that you know for sure is good, maybe a music CD.
2) The lens may be dirty. Open the cd door and blast some compressed air into it

I have an hp pavilion dv6000 and the disk drive doesn't work

i had the same exact problem with my dv 6000 notebook. The dvd Rom is damaged. U will have to get a new one. I tried lots of software but didnt work. i also wasted many cd'c nd dvd's which it didnt burn and also made them unusable.
So get ur dvd Rom replaced as sson as possible and another tip for future is that these dvd roms give up after writing about 100 dvds max i along with my 3 frnds having dv 6000 laptops have exprienced this. My frnd has now got his dvd rom replaced for the 15th time within 1 and ha;f year.. so replace ur drive.

Dvd drive will read/play dvds but will not recognize a cd

go to safemode and try reading CDs in safemode. If your burner still can't read CDs then it's most likely bad. You could get an external usb burner.

Acer pc not reading dvds or cds

You probably need a new cdrom.

Any laptop cdrom, cd/rw, dvdrom, dvd/rw, or cd/rw-dvd combo will fit in you laptop. All you have to do is remove the mounting hardware from the old one, and place on the new one. They are pretty easy to remove from the laptop, as there is only one screw from the bottom that holds them in.

Philips SCB5265 DVD/CDRW drive only reads CDs but not DVDs

Take a can of air and blow it on the laser then try to see if it will read both cd's and dvd's. If it doesn't read one or the other then the dvd-rw would need to be replaced.
