My DVD drive can read a CD-ROM and play an audio CD, but it cannot play a DVD in xp

Hi, In this case since you are able to play CD's and audio CD's using the CD drive and unable to play on DVD's firstly make sure that it is a DVD readable drive and in case you were able to read DVD's this is an issue with the DVD drive itself.This issue would mainly occur because of the spindle head in the drive going faulty.In case the computer or drive is covered by warranty please do contact your drive/computer manufacturer and get the repair done under warranty or else if not covered by warranty please contact a local technician to have the repair performed. Thank you for your patience and best wishes for your effort.

Your computer is missing a DVD decoder software. Simply download and install VLC media player and K-Lite codec. Both are free download. You will find the download link by simply doing a google search.

Cd rom recognised as cd audio

They will definately need drivers to be able to give out 100% of the performance.
You definately might have receive a disk while purchased the CD/DVD ROM.
Try that driver once and see the difference.

Cannot read

I think your drive is old and full of dust inside or it may be nearing its end. Get some servicing.

Dvd-rom trouble

Hi, first of all, I'd check if you have the problem with CD/DVDs burned (written on a CD/DVD writer) or you have it also with original CD/DVDs, which would be weird. Depending on your finding to the above point I'd do one thing or another, but to me does not look like a driver problem. I'd check with Toshiba support if there's a new firmware for your drive, this does improve the media the device can read and correct problems like the one you mention. To know the fimware version you're using, open device manager and go find your drive, right click on it and choose details tab. Normally the firmware revision is the number at the end of the instance. Good luck mate !
