Reads cd's fine won't read dvds

The drive is reading cd's fine, but not dvd's. When I open My Computer it's recognized as a CD drive not a dvd drive. The only dvd drive that shows is my virtual. I went to hitachi to download lasted driver/firmware but when I try to install I get error message. The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction. CS:0dd 1 IP:012d OP:63 65 44 72 69
Any help I'd be stoked

My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

Hello i have sony AD-7240S cd/dvd drive it can read all cd/dvds but it cant read my burnt cd/dvds plz give me suggestion


there is something wrong with the format of the files that you burnt. its either the format is not recognized by your dvd player or the format is not supposed to be burnt.try reading every details whenever you're burning a file to a cd/dvd. at the same time, check the specifications of your dvd player and find out the formats that it can read or recognize so that you'd know what format should you burn a file into.

Can operate with CD ROM's. Won't recognize DVD's.


Sounds like the drive could be going bad. The way the laser reads DVDs vs. CDs is different, that is why you are able to read one, not the other. I had this happen to me, except the opposite. It could read DVDs, not CDs. Had to buy a new one, and all is well.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

Dvd drive will read/play dvds but will not recognize a cd


go to safemode and try reading CDs in safemode. If your burner still can't read CDs then it's most likely bad. You could get an external usb burner.
