    I am having the same problem. My DVR 105 was working when I had windows XP professional. Then I installed a Home edition service Pack 2 and it does not work. I also installed a new hardrive. Is it possible the drive got damage?

Form the sound of it there is a problem with your motor. Does the unit make any noise after you insert a disc? You should hear a clicking, which is the laser adjusting, and a whir, of the motor spinning. If you do hear the motor you may be able to fix it, if you dont, it is probably toast, and you will have to replace the drive.

I purchased a toshiba portable dvd player and the disc is not spinning therefore reads no valid disc. I have put in a few discs still same reading? Any suggestions?


Hello
The Sled Motor is defective. this is the motor, whic spins the disc as it has been loaded properly. If the loader mechanism loads the disc properly into place and if the catch up magnet catches the disc in place, and still the dis do not spins, replace the sled motor. OK.

The disc has appeared to stop rotating. The info window continously says "reading".


DVD/CD Read/Write process: 1. The tray or carriage places the disc into the spindle or motor. 2. The spindle motor locks into place to prepare motor to spin - the disc is in free space and does not touch anything except the spindle motor. 3. The laser assembly moves into home position and attempts to focus on the disc by emitting infrared light to disc. 4. If a disc is present, the light should reflect back to the laser lens as the lens attempts to focus on the light - you will notice the lens moving up and down to focus. The lens should NOT touch anything. 5. Upon a successful focus, the spindle motor spins. 6. Data is read and sent to a buffer for decoding. 7. Success.

CD/DVD drawer won't open so CD stuck inside :(


Hi there,

Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Unplug the DVD player and take the outer casing of the DVD player off. This entails either taking out two or three screws or simply sliding one of the pieces of plastic in either direction.
2. Locate the disc loader cover. The disc loader cover is located where the extending DVD tray finally comes to rest within the DVD player. It's the part that holds the DVD loader in place.
3. Bend the two tabs outward that hold the loader in place. This is a delicate procedure because you don't want to hurt the device. The tabs are relatively easy to break since they're plastic in most cases.
4. Slide the disc tray out. If your disc got stuck before it was read, it's probably still on this tray. If so, your problem is solved. However, if the disc was fully set and loaded, the job isn't quite finished yet.
5. Move the small mechanical arm that holds the disc in place over so that the disc and the reader are both exposed. Some DVD players will not have anything holding the disc in place. Instead, these devices use a system not unlike that of a common DVD case. The DVD will be locked in place in the center.
6. Carefully lift the disc up and out of its loaded position in the DVD player. This may entail sliding the disc reading mechanism over slightly. This won't hurt the device as long as you're careful. You should be able to access and remove the disc.

Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa!!

Lg rc797t dvd drawer will not close consistently


I have a Compaq Presario desktop running XP Media Center. The DVD tray would open on power up, and kept openinig when pushed shut.

I discovered that the tray would frequently remain closed when I held open the flap (the flap with the open button). A few days after discovering this, I got to add some more tracks to my MP3 player - I only mention this intermediate stage in case it is material in curing the problem, as the next thing that happened was a power failure whilst the PC was on. Since then, the CD/DVD drive has behaved perfectly. I did have a temporary problem with AVG INternet Security being unable to load the necessary DLLs to run correctly in MS Outlook 2003, even complaining of a corrupt installation, but this dissappeared after a proper restart and AVG update.

So,
Compaq users: try holding the flap open when you attempt to close the tray.
Generally: with PC running and all applications closed, switch the power off at the wall socket.

Dvd burner question


First off is the drive a read only drive or a Read/write drive? If you look at the front drawer check to see if there is a big RW(read/writable) on the front of the drawer. If it doesn't have the RW then you won't be able to burn discs. If it says RW then you will be able use it to copy DVDs. You accomplish this by using software to copy the disc you're interested in to your hard drive and then using the copy on the hard disc to copy back to a blank recordable DVD placed in to tray.
