    Have you tried other CDs or DVDs in the drive? If so, do they work?

There is most likely a picture viewer program on the Walmart disk that you need to run to view the photographs.

Drive not reading discs


Is it not reading all discs, or just DVDs? Try a CD. I'm not sure about X Box, but any normal DVD should play a CD. Please reply back.

The Optical Disc does not recognize the Disc, that is, the Optical Disc does not rotate, but it receives power. I tried to run a disc under BIOS setup screen and the same happened


The best bet is to get an external DVD drive from Wal Mart for about $30 or more and forget the hassle. The cost to replace the internal drive is more than it is worth.

Mine is Sony DVD player..I insert a disc and it says "CAN NOT PLAY THE DISC" and then the player shuts off. The other DVD works fine.


HI,
Check the manuel some DVD Players do not support DVD RW or -R +R formats.When Ifirst put my burned movie in I got the message that the player cant play that format Just ignore that and advance the Video to where the movie is starting then all my burned movies played fine. My Pioneer BD 51 FD does support DVD RW +R -R formats so be sure that you can play burned DVD RW +R -R on your Sony player. I was in Wal Mart the other day and they had some DVD players on sale but on the box it said that they do not play DVD RW +R or -R Burned DVD's so be careful if you do buy another one I went to best buy and found mine. Check first it will save a lot of hassle later. This software works great but it may not play in your DVD Sony Player there is a list here of compatible DVD Players


OR

your disc is scratched or a pirated one

I have a Sony CRX320E CD/DVD unable to write a DVD


CD-RW drives can only read all CD-rom and CD-RW formats and read DVD formats but cannot write to a DVD, if you want to write a DVDs you need to buy a DVD-RW burner which can burn all CD-formats
