try to clean it with cd cleaner. after that try your known good cd maybe its just the cd/dvd that has the problem. if still doesn't work try using cd first then dvd. because some combo drive fail to read cd but can read dvd or vice versa. also check for the cd or dvd speed, type and class.
yep anyone will work today!
Sometimes the motor barring needs greased located at the center tp side where the disk sanswich is located 3 small very small cres then the center piece lifs exposin a nice shinny ball like surface this need a small amount of lub. CD has to spin to be read and has to spin at a particular speed a little drag will slow it down and sometime wabble the cd and it will be damaged hitting the edges of the draw as it is spinning.
Dear, you should put out the BIOS cell and put out the Ram from motherboard for 45 min and then keep or fix them same place where as they were working. Your computer read all devices that connected to your computer.
1.when you write on dvd writer always select low speed to write such as 8x or 16x 2. most of the dvd writer do max speed while wrting the Cd or Dvd 3. due to this reason your cd is not reading 4. you can try a new disk write in slow speed,then check with your cd.
One possible source of difficulty is there are different blanks for
"slow" recorders (1x - 4x), "high speed" recorders (4x-10x), "ultra speed"
recorders (12x-24x), and "ultra speed +" recorders. The disc manufacturers
had to change the way the discs were made to accommodate each successive
improvement, so older recorders don't work with the newer disks.
It is possible for some 4x-capable "slow" drives to use the "fast" blanks
with a firmware upgrade, but there is no advantage to doing so since you're
still limited to 4x recording (unless, of course, you're unable to find
"slow" CD-RW blanks).
CD-RW discs for the faster drives are labeled with a "High Speed",
"Ultra Speed", or "Ultra Speed +" logos. Make sure you buy the right blanks
for your drive.
This is usually caused by dirty drive lens, too scratched CDs or CD burnt at faster speed than your ROM can read. (I am assuming that your pc detect the CD drive and has no hardware conflict with it).
Try reading an unscratched prerecorded (original CD), if it does not read this as well then your lens are dirty, try using a CD lens cleaner if these dont work then you need to open your ROM and use a highly volatile organic lens cleaner chemical.
You should have enough memory to burn DVD and it eats a lot of time... Also before burning, close all other applications running as to set the computer for burning your DVD's set it to Maximum priority, which means you should not use the computer when the process starts. Disable also your screen saver and use an appropriate DVD-disc, pay attention to the specification of your DVD drive... If it has a DVD+ then use a DVD-CD that has a "+" sign, Don't burn too much DVD so your burner will last longer or won't easily damage... have it rest for awhile before burning again.
Dvd drives can read from both DVD and CD however due to technological limitations most DVD-ROM or RAM read up to slightly higher speeds for CDs than DVDs.
When burning DVDs professional companies that make prerecorded disks burn their disk at low speeds in an effort to achieve both compatibility and low errors, that is the reason their DVDs play on most DVD-ROMs. However DVDs me and you burn at home and work at high speeds are prone to errors and incompatibility with low reading speed drives.
As a result if your DVD-ROM has a low maximum reading speed then it can only read those prerecorded DVDs and only DVDs recorded at low speeds provided thre are not scratched.
I believe you managed to read those DVD movies if they were pre recorded.
