Re: why my pc does not work with 16x DVD

The dvd reading capability of your drive could be less than that of the dvd speed,,,,

Cd drive not working

Try cleaning the head with a burst of clean air from a compressor. Be careful not use air with oil or water mixed into it. Sometimes, with the mere blowing of air from your mouth would clean the lens.

It doesnt read any dvd neither software nor video, but can read audio cds, vcds, and mp3s

Put a DVD disk into the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.
Click "Explore".
If a window opens, then your hardware can read the DVD media.
If not, then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.

Then, you need software, such as the _free_ 'VLC' software,
downloadable from the Internet, to play DVD-videos on your computer.

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

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.

I'vd got not driver

Windows 2000 and XP and Vista and 7 have "built-in" device-drivers to allow you to read "data" files from CD and/or DVD drives.

However, you need software, such as 'PowerDVD' in order to "play" pre-recorded audio/video content recorded on DVD media.

See: for information about 'PowerDVD' software.

My dvd writer was working perfectly but when i format my wondow now it is playing only cds & when i insert a dvd it is not giving any response & my driver is also showing as cd-rom

When you formated you erased the driver you need to use your dvd writer as a dvd writer and player. If your dvd-rom came with a cd use it to reinstall the driver and program it uses. Otherwise you can search for your driver thru the manufacturer website or go to and find it there.

Sony DVD Rom does not work...

IF you go to my computer or explore, and it does not work (EVER) then you either have a bad drive or bad controller.

More likely of the 2 is a bad drive. You can try a cd/dvd cleaning kit found at walmart, however it is unlikly that is the problem.

DVD Won't Play

You can try to uninstall the hardware, turn off the PC, and then allow Windows to find it when it reboots. Or you can try to update the drivers for it by going to the manufacturer's website. (google is your friend :D) You can also try the restore function located at: start -> all programs -> accessories -> system tools -> system restore restore it to a earlier time when it was working with no problems.
