It may be that you need to disassemble the dvdr to open the disc player and do a visual cleaning. My unit kept having irratical recording problems and when I took it apart there was a hair rapped around the disc spinner that was long enough to go between the lens reader and the disc which was enough to cause disc errors and a host of other problems. After I removed the hair everything is back to normal and the player is as good as new.
Hope this helps,

We've also get the no disc message. We've used compressed air through the disc tray and unplugged it. Any other suggestion

My Acer Aspire cd /dvd drive isn't operating properly. I keep getting error message that I have no driver.


many cds/dvds get dirty by fingering on the reading side of them, use tops(ear-cleaners) to remove dirt from lens.

Supergirl 13 color tv/dvd combo plays CDs but not DVDs...


If cleaning did not fix it the optical pickup for that unit is damaged in some way---if the set has audio/video INPUT jacks on it just buy a DVD player and hook it to the set.

If no jacks you are finished--DVD portion of the unit if available costs more than the entire set.

I've got VW Passat b6 2006. Rosen-VW0710-H11 is installed in it. When I try to play DVD (no matter audio or video) system displays message: "Password Fail". What can be the reason of this...


I would recommend resetting the Rosen unit. This is done by entering the "Menu" and pressing "Settings". From this screen, you select "Keypad" in the top right corner of the screen and then enter "7-5-2-3" and press "Enter". This should erase any code for Parental Control (levels 0 - 8). Also, the Rosen product states to only use "Store bought media" for CD's and DVD's meaning that it won't play all 'burned' discs. Hope this helps.- Elliot

The drive plays DVDs and can read doc files, but


This problem is normal and exists with many CD/DVD drives.
On some of the drives, if you put in blank discs and try to open the disc in My Computer or Windows Explorer, Windows displays no contents or a blank disc. Whereas on other drives, you get the error message that you mentioned about incorrect function.

What software are you using to burn CDs or DVDs? Are you able to burn CDs but not DVDs or you can't burn both the discs? Did you try a CDs with a different make/manufacturer? Some drives refuse on some disc makes. Try another disc and another writing speed, or try the lowest writing speed available with your software.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal

Sony CX995v "Cannot Play" message on DVDs but plays CDs O.K.


Hi...
The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.

My hi-fi refuses to play CDs! it comes up with a 'no disc' error when there really is a disc there.


The "no disc" error message indicates that the unit failed to read the disc. There can be a number of reasons for this. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Many times that cleaning will resolve the problem. If not, please supply the make and model of the unit and I'll provide additional options.
