That is clearly an hardware problem. Only easy operation you can do to try fixing it is cleaning the lens, sometimes dirty lens can give you similar problems. second solution is disassembling the combo drive to identify mechanical problems and assembling it back. Third step to do is checking the electronics (controlled board, heads, motor, etc), but probably at this point will be more convenient to find a second hand combo from ebay. They shouldn't came too expensive.

I am trying get to firmware for my samsung sc- 140b. My cdrom can't read a cdrom and. i can't hear nothing.


If you insert a disk, and you don't hear it "spin" the disk, then the motor that spins the disks has FAILED. Replace the CD-ROM drive -- it's less expensive than paying a technician to try to repair it.

HI, its the problem that your dvd/cd can not read dvd cd .
Think It could be a problem with the lens, you should try cleaning the lens, and clean all the

cable ribon,and also fit it tightly.
If you take a little risk but you can solve it self.
follow the instruction: Don't panic its very simply.
1. When running your pc , open the drawer.>
2. switch off the ac power
3. remove power cable & sata or pata cable
4. remove all the screw from the back side
5. press clip to open the font panel
6. reverse the cd/dvd rw
7. just remove the cover
8. clean the optical lance
9. remove all the ribon and clean by eraser or sharp blade.

PHILIPS CDRW/DVD SCB5265 ATA Device cannot play most DVDs


I'm guessing you may have locked the DVD region. If you right-click on the device in Device Manager and click the Region tab, does it say 0 changes available? Acer won't fix this, and claim you have to replace the drive. Can't find a firmware flash for this drive online, will post back here if successful!

Dell D600 not reading any type of disk


When the CD does not read any disk, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD will not be read, therefore the error.

When this problem is beginning you may be able to read only CD, DVD or Blue ray, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD lens cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with cotton tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD drive unit.

Dell XPS 1300 Cd rom problem


This is a CD drive mechanical problem. All CD/DVD drives have built in error checking for mechanical failures. When you insert the CD/DVD, it tries to grab and seat the disc, then attempts to spin it up and then read it. If the grab and seat function fails for any reason, the drive will eject the tray so you can try again. You should contact Dell support and get the drive replaced. Has the drive ever worked? or did it just stop working one day?
