Dvd rom not reading cds/dvds

I had similar problem on a Toshiba Satellite A30 laptop, I simply had to reconnect DVD drive. It usually loosing it's connection with motherboard and drive is visible in My Computer but it doesn't recognize any discs. If reconnection does not solve your issue you may try to update your DVD firmware and if it won't help replace DVD drive. Good Luck!

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.

Help! My SAMSUNG CDRW/DVD SN-324B [CD-ROM drive] is not working

if it is disabled in bios then windows will not recognize it in your device manager. The question is kind of broad but i think if you enable it in your bios windows will recognize it then you can get the model number and such and search online for a driver if your windows disk or windows itself does not support it

Samsung v 25 dvd room not working

Hi Alfonso, you can put any dvd-rw into your laptop, all you have to is change out the screw holder on the back of the drive and also change out the face plate. This will allow you to make sure that the drive fits properly and that you can screw the drive into place. Also make sure the shape of the drive matches up as well.

Dvd recording

I had the same problem and spent some time looking up this issue. I have a sony dvd player and it seems to have trouble reading almost any burnt dvd or cd. I have read that sonys seem to prefer the cheap dvds and cds for burning. It seems the cheap'O dvd players play burnt dvds and cds better that the nice ones, go figure.

There is more info out there about making sure to burn dvds and cds in the correct format.
You can try different burning software that has more options than just vista.
If you are creating a dvd from a movie file such as an avi or mpeg, please explain more on what you are doing and trying to accomplish.

My Dual Layer DVD±RW for my presario v2410us will not read CDs

It happens in combo drives where the cd reading wont work and still read or burn dvd's or vice versa. If you tried to use a cd cleaner and still didnt work then the cd reader is already busted. it either you replace it a new one or not.
