Yes does not read DVD-R because if your LS50 Labeled like this (DVD/CD-RW) means that can read only all DVD Disc and cannot write on DVD blank only CD blank.

You can burn only on the blank CD-RW or any blank CD.

Why won't cds play in the dvd-rw?

Nathaniel, DVD RW have the capability of playing any CD. If you are facing problem then either:

a) Your CD is not right or has too much scratches on it.
b) Your DVD RW Lens has gotten a bit weak. Clean your DVD RW lens and then give it a try.

My cd drive will read cds but wont read as a burner

Not all Inspirons have CD burners (the 4 factory options were CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, and DVD/CD-RW. You can confirm that via Windows Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager and double click on DVD/CD-ROM drives to see what model drive you have, then just Google it to see what it's capable of.

In case you have either a CD-RW type drive or a DVD/ CD-RW drive and it doesn't want to burn CD's , then it's a bad drive.

My Matshita UJDA 750 DVD/CDRW wont recognize a blank DVD discs. How ever it does read both CDs and DVDs and only burns CDs.... please help

Are you trying to burn a dvd? If so from the spec you gave in the problem description your drive will burn cds(CDRW) but will only play dvds(DVD). If it stated DVDRW then you would be able to burn DVDs as in the CDRW.

KDS Laptop CD ''D'' drive won't recognize blank CD WIN ME

On the face of the CD drive drawer, does it say "CD" or "CD-RW" (or "CD-RW/DVD")? If "RW" or "ReWritable" isn't present, you can't write to blank CDs. You can only read prerecorded ones.
