Four reasons....it either does not like the media you are using,(if it is not reading blank discs), the media you are using is dirty, scratched or encrypted, the laser reader aperture is dirty with dust and needs to have a dvd cleaner run through it, or the device is failing at the read laser aperture and the drive will need to be replaced.

Hi,

You can try to buy a lens cleaning kit. Sometimes the lens is dirty and this causes the drive not to read the disk. It's worth a try.
Please rate!!

Have a nice day!

I have a couple of different hard drives on different machines which have crashed and cannot be recovered, someone thought it could be due to unstable power input. Can you tell me is there a program o


Alway use a power surge.

Disc hard drives are like the old time record players. Disc and needle. If the noise is noise is physical based, they are toast. If not, try running chkdsk /f from the command prompt. Press F8 during boot to get to the cmd.

My Ge Force will burn audio but not DVD.I have tried with Ashampoo,Record Now and Express Burner.The burning programme tells me there is no disc in drive


Hi Brian.

I think you are a little confused.

Your GeForce FX 5500 is a graphics card
All this does is allow you to see your desktop on a monitor and play some games.

For burning discs you need a cd/dvd burner. This is a cd/dvd drive that you can use to read and write cd's and dvd's

You say that your program is telling you that there is no disc in the drive. (Your CD/DVD burner drive)
You can burn audio discs so this tells me you know that much and you have blank cd's so my two things I need to tell you are these..

1. To make a DVD or Burn a DVD you need a BLANK DVD disc in your burning drive. Maybe you have mistakenly placed a CD in the drive instead?
2. Your Burner drive may not burn DVD's only CD's?

Check on the door to the drive that opens to allow you to place discs into it. It should say something like DVD multi recorder or Compact Disc re-writeable. If it does not say DVD on it anywhere your drive is not capable of burning DVD movies and therefore you will need to purchase another burner.

I hope this helps?

Drive cant write any disc


If the unit was working ok and suddenly the unit stop to read the blank disk, the problem could be related to a dirty lector (need to clean) or unit firmware (need to be updated)
In that case you can update your firmware here:

***************************************************************************************
Remember

1) You have to use a blank "recordable disk" to allow your drive write a disk
2) Not all disks are compatible
3) Try differents brand
4) Clean your drive lector
5) Update your firmware

My dvd cant eject


You need to provide more information.

A CD-ROM/DVD drive only needs power to eject a disc. It does not care if the drivers are installed, for that function, it only needs power.

If this is a new drive it might be a bad one. If this is a drive you have used before, it might have gone bad.

If you have a Disc stuck in the drive, you can always use a paper clip to preform a manual eject. Just unbend a paper clip, and stick it in the pin size hole on the front of the drive. Keep pushing until the drive door opens.

If this is new drive, make sure it is connected correctly.
