How old is the combo drive? Have you just bought it?

    It is possible that your dvd software needs updating, or you need to clean the lens. There are plenty of lens cleaners available, all they are is a disc with a fine brush attached, you should be able to purchase them where you purchase the discs.

try to use with a CD cleaner and do a thorough cleaning - repeat several times. If doesn't help, you need to replace the drive. I experience that same kind of problem with 10 out of 50 computers even if the drive is not used always...some part or mechanism must be deteriorating.

DVD does not read Data


try to find the CD-installer it's free when you purchase a combo drive.

Just try to re-install it.

I think that is the only way to make it work correctly.

Combo drive CD not reading, but DVD ok


it may have dual laser and one that reads cd's is faulty, but try uninstalling the dvd drive first then re installing it to see if it cures it, if not the drive will need replacing. Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers

My dvd combo does not read dvd


There are separate lasers for CD reading, and for DVD reading. This is why it is possible to have a drive that reads only CDs but not DVDs, or the other way around. And your particular combo unit seems to have a lot of these problems. Since the drive doesn't work it's almost definitely a problem with the drive itself (I'm assuming that there is nothing wrong with the discs you tried to read). If that drive is still covered by a warranty period, send it back for repairs. Otherwise, I can't see the harm in trying to tinker with it yourself as the DVD portion of it is dead anyways. Ummm, on a side note...CompUSA is going out of business and they are selling things cheap. I got a DVD lightscribe burner for $40...booyah!
