Wrong side dvd place in dvd drive


no, it will not harm the DVD drive nor the DVD itself in any way, the drive would just not recognize it and would display a no drive in the Drive warning that's all

Wrong side dvd place in


Unless you let it stay there for a long time, then I think it could cause something weird. But from my experience, I accidentally placed the wrong side and immediately removed it. As far as I know, it didnt cause any trouble for my dvd-rom.

My dvd combo does not read dvd


There are separate lasers for CD reading, and for DVD reading. This is why it is possible to have a drive that reads only CDs but not DVDs, or the other way around. And your particular combo unit seems to have a lot of these problems. Since the drive doesn't work it's almost definitely a problem with the drive itself (I'm assuming that there is nothing wrong with the discs you tried to read). If that drive is still covered by a warranty period, send it back for repairs. Otherwise, I can't see the harm in trying to tinker with it yourself as the DVD portion of it is dead anyways. Ummm, on a side note...CompUSA is going out of business and they are selling things cheap. I got a DVD lightscribe burner for $40...booyah!
