Cannot get my dvd cd rom to play dvds or cds tried everything apart from taking the tower off model #a1310n Prod# el448aa-aba

If you cannot hear the disk spinning when you put the cd or DVD in you may have a broken CD/DVD drive, easily and cheaply replaceable for under $20 at any store (Recommended: Best Buy). Try putting your Windows Disc into the drive to see if it is only a problem with playing Media, or if it is a problem with the drive itself and go from there. Good luck!

The CD-Rom will spin the disc but then it will suddenly stop and will not play/read the disc. I don't know if the eye is working wrong

sounds like the cd drive is bad, If it does this with every disc then replace the drive, if it is just the one disc, there may be scratches or damage on the disc preventing it from being read.

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?

CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

My disk drive want work.

try to use a cd that is working before, if it does not play then you need to clean your cd rom,we have a lot of brands of lens cleaner in hte market. after cleaning try to play again the cd which were running before. if it will play then run the cd which you noticed that it won't play. if it doesn't then that is a cd issue that might be not supported by your dvd rom

CD ROM = Read Only Memory - play discs
CD R = Recordable - write songs / data discs
CD RW = Re Writable. - use more than once to write songs / data

What does it say on the front of your drive?
If it says RW or R you need to use a program such as Nero to be able to write discs.
Hope this Helps
