Philips DVD +RW & CD-R/RW driver

Hello.
I have a Philips DVD+RW & CD-RW driver No CD RW 5232PI installed in a Windows XP PC. The drive will play discs but I have one DVD video that it will not play or recognise. The disc I believe is OK because it will play on other Pc's and DVD players. The disc can be in the drive but the PC does not realise that it is there. A test on the drive reports that it is working properly and I have updated the decoder.
I would be grateful for any help that you may be able to offer.
Thank you, J Lee.

My LG DVD RW can not play DVD


Are you sure that your ROM can't play the disc or is it that you don't have a program to play the disc? To my knowledge Windows XP didn't come packaged with a DVD Decoder program; except for XP Media Center. There are some FreeWare programs out there that you can download, or you can pay for the program that decodes DVDs so that you can watch them. If your DVD isn't recognizing any type of DVD that you put into the ROM, then try playing a CD\DVD player cleaning disc in it. If that doesn't work, then you will probably have to get another DVD-ROM.

DVD plays in DVD player is not seen at all by Windows XP


Hi,it's obvious from your problem that the particular disc that cannot be viewed on your computer is of a formatt not supported by the windows XP.some DVDs are of low quality which can be viewed practically on any DVD player but as a result of their low quality and the sensitivity of the Windows they are not recognized by your computer. In as much as other DVDS play on your computer,it means there's no problem with your computer,but an unsupported disc formatt is been trying to be viewed and there's nothing you can do to view a DVD formatt not supported by your computer.please don't be bothered.
Thanks and take care

My ACER cd/dvd scb265 combo doesn't read some DVD data disk


Windows Vista by default burns "Live File System" It picks if its Live or not when you are "Preparing the blank disc" this is when it asks you what to you want to title the disc. The problem with Live discs is they don't work on any operating system that came before Windows XP and they don't work on Windows XP if it doesn't have service pack 3. Because of this, you want to burn your CD/DVD as a "Mastered" disc. These are compatible with all operating systems, but any files are permanent *unless you are using CD/RW or DVD/RW, DVD/RAM.


If this was not your problem, please leave a comment and I will get back to you and try to fix your problem =)

Yamaha CRW3200E DVD/CD-ROM drive recognized in bios yet will not burn DVD/CD. Using XP SP2, with Nero Express 6. Display screen name becomes CD-RW Drive. Is it possible the drive is dead, and the computer...


The drive is CD-RW, not DVD-RW. Could the disk image be too big? Are you using CD-RW media instead of DVD-RW? Just going by the specs online, this drive does not work with DVD media, not even to read.
Provided the media is correct and the disk image(s) are correctly sized, I would check the hardware properties to make sure Windows is seeing it properly. The writing function is specific to the drive, but the read functions are more generic. Since no updates will come from Microsoft, you are limited to using the driver disk to install this. Without a driver installed properly, this likely won't burn CD's.
If the driver software is installed, and the media and files match up, and it still does not work, it's likely a bust. While it might have been great when new, this drive was produced around 2001. There are too many things that can go wrong for it to last this long. If it reads, you are lucky. If it writes, buy a lottery ticket. I've seen many newer drives come and go.
