DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs

the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

I would suggest trying WinDVD and see if that works. If so, then yes, it would be a decoder issue.

Dvd disc will not play or copy w/ WMP

I would try first washing the DVD. Use dishwashing liquid and hot water, with only your hands, and use side-to-side motions to move the soap around the underside of the disc, never 'with' the grain of the data grooves. When finished, rinse the disc thoroughly, and pat it dry with a clean paper towel or other lint-free cloth. When dry, try it again.

Hope this will FixYa!!!
