Does this happen on any game? Or just a one game. Make sure this is not a copy game. GL

I have an acer windows vista basic desktop computer. when I first got it the cd/dvd was working and some how I can't play any cds now. i can watch a movie but i can't listen to music from a cd....


Please and make sure that the cd itself is not suffering from any defect such as scratches since that is normally the issue when it freezes.
What player are you using? Are you using VLC?
Windows player can sometimes refuse to play certain files when the codecs are not installed.
Do let me know what happens next.
All the best

Can you play PC DVD ROM on an emachines E4026 Desktop PC. because i just had a game brought for me & when i try to load it , the computer reads it as a blank disc Any help appreciated ...


Based on the one and only specs sheet I could find for this model of emachine, it does have a DVD-ROM drive. So in theory it can. Does the unit play DVD Movies? if yes then it should work, try rebooting and then putting the disc in again. I assume the disc is clean and scratch free as the game is new.

If the OS on your computer has ever been reinstalled, you may be missing the driver for the drive, in which case windows would treat it as a generic CD-ROM drive, and not be able to read DVDs, you can get the drivers for the drive from the emachines website if this is the case.

I'm trying to install a PC-DVD Game to my LG CD-ROM CRD-8521B, It plays CD's but wont play DVD's of any sort. Really need help...


The CD rom is limited to CD's. In order to read a DVD, you will need to install a DVD rom. My suggestion is to get an external DVD Burner - i just bought a Samsung slim external DVD burner that reads / writes CD's and DVD's.
You will have no luck ever reading a dvd in a cd rom.

Wont read disc


Hello there... Sony seems a choosy brand so it looks like your disc is not recognized by it. Check also your disc for scratches or you just need to clean your disc first before you can use it. Try it. If this doesn't help, try inserting your disc to other CD-ROM. See if your disc is okay. Hope this helps...

My CD shows empty when i finished copying?


I am going to assume that you have a PC running Microsoft Windows OS.

Have you ever tried to play an MP3 file stored on the computer's disk. For example, download the following: Example , by right-clicking that link and selecting to save it to your desktop. Then go to your desktop and double-click it. If it plays, note which application runs it.

If it doesn't, then you may want to install one of dozens of music players you can download and use for free. For example: Windows Media Player or iTunes.

Even if playing a file from your desktop works, it might be good to install a fresh copy of the latest of one of these players.

Next, I would have you load your CD. Note what happens carefully. It may be different once you install a new player. If a dialog pops up and offers to play the CD, then note the name of that application. However, typically they will not offer to play a disk of MP3s because that should be a data disk and not an Audio CD. Tell me how that CD was created. In any case, when that dialog comes up, instead of choosing to play the CD, choose to Explore or Browse. Then copy the files you find on it to your desktop. Now try to double click those files and see if they play. Are they MP3 files? If they are not MP3s, then you probably have an Audio CD and is not well written or your drive is "tired of life." Try another Audio CD that is a commercial product and see if that plays. If so, blame the CD. If it doesn't, then blame the drive. You may be able to update the driver for your drive, but then we are getting much deeper into it than your basic question.

Packard Bell computer won't play dvds.


This sounds like a common problem. You need to install the drivers (small programs that instruct the computer to notice and manipulate peripherals, like a dvd or cd player, sound card, etc...).

The easiest place to find your specific driver is at the Packard Bell web site under support > Downloads. There are MANY sites (even some that advertise on this very site) that say they have the drivers for your dvd drive, but go directly to your manufacturer's web site. These companies that provide drivers for computers install a program into your computer and there is a fee for use of these web sites.

UPDATE: I just checked the Packard Bell Web Site and was unable to find specific drivers for your particular model. They stopped making them some time ago, and no longer support the model. That being said, you can still conceivably find the drivers, it will just take some investigative work on your part. In doing a broad search on the internet, I found that many people are looking for that very driver, which is an indication it has become hard to find.

DVD/CD-R/W NOT WORKING AT ALL?


Go into MY computer and make sure your dvd/cdrw is being shown in there. IF its in there then try to see if it will recognize anything you put in there. Try different things such as a music cd and then a dvd movie. If it recognizes one but not the other then your drive is bad. If your computer is not seeing the drive at all then it could be a virus or your cables need to be reconned to the drive. No driver is needed, just software to burn stuff and a dvd player to play dvd's.
