This is more than likely your laser that is dead and its possibly a
Samsung or Hitachi drive, be careful when
buying a new laser because there is a lot of dodgy ones around at the
minute which can damage your machine or
at the very least will be inferior and not last long.

if your 360 reads DVD's but not games it may be repairable but if it wont
read anything then your better off replacing the laser. strip down the
console and strip the DVD drive, take out the laser and look underneath
it, it will have a code such as HD57 or something else, note that down.
Visit ebay and search for the laser with the same code, buy it, fit it in
and make sure you de-solder the static blob of solder before using it
(search the net about this or ask the seller) and then try your machine
again :)

It will not play Verbatim DVD-R disc that I burnt on my computer.


If it can read any other disk, you should burn your disk again because burning process was incorrect. your computer can't recognize the disk. In this case, probably you can't do anything, no way to try to read a bad disk if computer can't even "see" it.
By the way, you should test to read the disk on some other computer.
If happens with ALL your disks, your optical player is defective.
Again test reading with other computer if record was made correctly
As for your device, you should check if worth to repair and decide if repair or replace it.

DVD-RAW does not read DVD. It is unable to find a DVD. Is it DVD problem or player problem?


I think I've just answered this question :-

It won't be a driver problem, DVD drives are generic, it will be either the drive has a problem, the dvd has a problem or your media player has a problem

1) Drive issue - does it player other dvd's - if yes, your drive is ok, if now you have a drive problem, try using a CD lens cleaner or a blast of canned air to clean the lens.

2) Disk issue, if just one disk doesn't play, then its a disk issue or data issue. Assuming the disk is clean and not scratched. Does the Disk have the correct country coding for your region. If not then you have to change the region setting on your DVD player

RMB My computer - Manage - Device manager - Optical drive - Properties - Regional settings.
Bear in mind most DVD player will only allow about 5 changes.

3) Media player, your current media player may not have the correct codecs to decodes the video files on this disk. Go to filehippo.com download and install VLC media player. This will play about anything and its free.

CD Drives read only
COMPACT.DISKS.
DVD/CD Combo drives are meant to have support for DVDs and CDs
Of course it's not going to work! it's not compatible, either buy an external CD/DVD Drive. or replace your CD Drive with a DVD/CD Drive.
