1. Check whether it happens same for other discs too.
2. If yes then your drive is faulty and you can do nothing other than replacing the drive and if no then that only particular is corrupted.

It will cost about $30 to buy a brand-new CD/DVD reader/writer.
Any computer-store technician can easily "manually" open your current drive, and remove the CD/DVD media.

If there is a little pin hole on the front use an unwound paper-clip. push it into the hole and the mechanism should release? Realy need more detail though.

My dvd-writer/cd-writer combo will not open?


look a tiny hole in the front of the CD/DVD drive use a paper clip to pull out the tray, when you have the tray out use the EJECT bottom in the drive to close and wait 3 seconds and press again to open, do this at least 3 times.

Dell E510 Missing CD & DVD Drives...nothing is working yet...


you can buy that type of hardware anywhere since it is standard for all desktop. Your current drive is IDE meaning that the data cable on it is an IDE type.
Go to your local computer store and ask for a DVD writer IDE, since there is really no price difference now for a combo or dvd writer drive, it will be like 10 $ more for the writer. I live in canada so if you are in the US could be less here a DVD writer is around 35 $ at a computer shop.

Here is the spec of your computer just in case :

DVD drive is not working


Is it really DVD? have you check the little label in the Drive? sometime it says CD Combo as a reader and writer only not DVD Combo.

If it say's DVD if you just bought it try and have it check from the retailer if theres a warranty

No Sound when I play a DVD, but I do have sound when I play a Music CD


Open your sound controls to make sure nothing is muted or set on low volume.
If that's not the case, open your audio drivers program and check to see if nothing is muted.
