I have a dell inspiron 6000 and the sony dvd/cd rewritable drive model DW-D56A does not load cd or dvd when inserted but it does light up and eject when pressed in my computor

Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install.

Dell inspiron 1525 laptop cd rom not accepting any disc. nothing shows up on the screen when i insert the disc.


Try to use a bootable disc (usually OS discs or recovery discs). Boot to disc by changing the boot device priority into CD/DVD drive. If your unit will boot to disc, the problem is the operating system. However, if it will not boot to the bootable disc, surely, the optical drive of your unit is defective. In this case, either u need to reinsert it, or replace it with new one.

Hope this helps.

DVD burner doesn't reconize burned music cd's only shows them as blank disc

Have you tried to play burned music disc with other laptop? if it was able to play there then i suspected your dvd-rom drive is faulty.

To confirm, try playing different cds from your machine and check if it was able to read it.

Dvd cd writer does not detect disc in drive when i want to burn

Sometimes you need to have a burning software like nero or roxio, if you want to get music from an audio cd you can use rip by going to the windows media player but if not tell me what kind of software you are using for copying.
