16X8 DVD Dual won't read dvd.

Micro Advantage 16X8 DVD Dual worked fine until I played a DVD with Digital Rights software embeded in it. The DVD no longer reads any disk CD or DVD . I run Fedora Core 6 however the DVD is still deaf or blind to CDs or DVDs when running Windows 2000 .

Re: 16X8 DVD Dual won't read dvd.

set it up on a seperate IDE Channel, or change from master to slave. Or Vice-Versa.
Secondly you could try re-installing windows 2000, this should repair any corrupt or missing drivers.
Finally see the manufacturers website, to see if any firmware upgrades are available.
Hope This helps.

Need drivers for windows 7

no driver is needed; Windows OS provide automatic support that allows the drive to read a data or music disk. Other types of disks will require dvd decoding software and compatible burning software.

Does not read Cds or DVDs

most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.

Can't read CD but can read DVD

This is not uncommon. I have seen it often. It is a sign that the unit is about to fail, and needs to be replaced.

I don't know where you are, but around where I live, these dual layer DVD RW drives retail for less than 30 dollars. They usually come with software and are not difficult to install.

Beware of ESD, however, whenever you are working on the inside of a pc. ESD (electo static discharge) can destroy the insides of your machine without you knowing it until it's too late.

good luck

DVD R not working properly

So it won't play movies most of the time? Time to replace the drive more than likely. When a laser gets weak, sometimes it wont read the DVD's, but will read regular cd's without problems. Eventually it won't read anything. The laser requires more power to read a dvd than a regular cd. The laser itself it adjustable, doesn't always work, but it's a sure sign that its on its way out. They are cheap to replace these days. :)
