There is no problem with the system. only you need to clean the lens using CD/DVD cleaner.

I am having a problem with my DVD rom. I put a disc in there (DVD or CD) and it shows what the disc is and even names all the songs on it, but then a message comes up saying- ? Windows Media Player cannot...


It just might be a problem with the laser carriage motor that moves the laser assy back and forth to read from the inner portion of the disc to the outer portion. If it can't move from the reference position, it won't read anything more than the initial data on any disc. Hope this helps. Good luck!

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.

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 !

My pioneer dvd does no longer read dvd but play and burns cd and vcd well


Give this a try, if no change, the dvd rom may have to be replaced:- Try My computer>properties>devicemanager>hardware tab, then click on the '+' sign on the DVD/CDROM drives line. Right click your DVD then click uninstall. Restart your pc and let Windows find it again, see if it sorts itself out. If it's getting on a bit try a lens cleaner also.
