Hi,
try cleaning the laser head, with a cd cleaning disk.
Also try several different CDs in the machine.
If this does,nt work, suspected faulty-weak laser.

OS is Windows XP Professional CD drive will not reconize a DVD+R for recording data. The drive is a HL-D-ST CDRW/DVD GCC4244.


A CDRW/DVD is a CD-burner and DVD-ROM combined unit. It is not meant to record DVDs only CDs.

It will not recognise a blank DVD as it is unable to read any file system.

Take the laptop *and* your DVDs/CDs to a qualified technician.

HP Pavillion dv6121tx 15.4" notebook problem with DVD


Hi

It sounds like a hardware fault on the drive itself. The laser and focussing mechanisms are different for CDs and DVDs. The fact that the drive can read DVDs fine suggests that the laser and lenses can no longer focus correctly to deal with CDs.

Replacement of the drive would be the only fix, although you might find it a lot easier to buy an external USB DVD drive.

Pioneer DVR K17A don't read CDs


Does the player play Audio disks? if so then it could be a software issue. It sounds more like the CD laser has died on your unit. The CD/DVD unit has two lasers, one for the CD side of things and another for the DVD. If still under warranty get replacement.
Hope this helps.
