May be a corrupt driver issue.

Dvd plays initially and then stops


Hi,
It could be the drivers for CD/DVD.
The best way to troubleshoot this is right click on computer, select manage. A new window will pop up, in that list select device manager.
Look in the list for CD/DVD drives and click on the + sign next to it, when the tree opens right click on the CD/DVD drive and select uninstall, then restart the PC.

This method will hard reset the system and force windows to load the default drivers for the CD/DVD upon restart. Hopefully this should resolve your problem.
If not please post back.

Good luck

My Lite On DVDRW will not recognize any audio cd's...


Hi PhxROcker,

In these drives there are two lasers and two pick-up sensors. Normally in a combined head. One set is used for the DVD and the other is used for the CD. From you description it sounds like the optical sensor for the CD laser has expired! When you place a CD into the drive a small amount of information is read by the drive that identifies the disc type, manufacturer, it's status, capacity etc. If the drive cannot read this then it thinks nothing is present.

If you insert a disc does the LED on the front the the unit flash a few times while it spins the disc. Does it do this repeatedly? If it fails to read the disc does the LED stop blinking and the drive no longer spins the disc? If this is the case then your drive may indeed be faulty.

Sorry I could not be of any further assistance.

Regards,

Spare head 2.
