I have a DVD-RW disc that reads Error problem when trying to play on my DVD player...any solutions


Hi,

There are three things you can do that will eventually give you a working solution. Depending on the level of problem. Start with 1 progress to 3 until it works.
1. Use a cleaning disc. (one that use an alcohol based liquid)

2. If the cleaning disc does not solve it, you can use an ear bud, with some iso-propyl alcohol to clean the DVD lens on the drive directly. (you have to open the player and the drive)

3. The guaranteed working solution is to replace the DVD drive inside the player. This is quite a simple process, as most players use a standard IDE DVD-ROM or DVD writer.

You simply remove the face plate, (apply power to the drive, and press eject first) the tray will open. Unclip the tray face, and then with the tray open you can unclip the plastic face plate too.

Remove the old drive, and fit the new drive by reversing the removal procedure.

Once everything is assembled you should be able to watch DVD's again. If you can't find a cheap DVD drive locally, try ebay.

I have done this on over 50 players for my clients in the past. I use LG IDE DVD roms and IDE DVD writers for the DVD recorders, irrespective of brand.

Let me know how it goes.

Hi,

XP home should automatically detect and install the device.

**** Please Do-Not-Rate This Post, Until Your problem Has Been Resolved ****

There are a few concerns here:- if the drive has been virused, it may have been instructed to shut-down or corrupted the Drives Logical Board.

If you go to My Computer/Control Panel/System/Hardware/Device Manager.
See if your drive is recognised There, DVD/CD Rom Drives.
If it isn,t Click the small screen icon, top of page " Scan for hardware Changes " this should detect the drive if it,s recognisable by the system.

If it is, right click/Properties. And see if the device has any conflicts ( usually noticed by a yellow Triangle/exclamation Mark. Or drivers not installed.

Failing this, you can go into the systems Bios Screen. F2 at bootup. and see if the device is visible in there. And whether it,s enabled.

If none of this works, please mail back here.

If you rate this solution, without fixing your problem. i may be reluctant to assist you further.

Mike @ cmpurepair.

Compatability issue with 3305


This is very simple. you just have to remember to finalize the disc. doing this stops you making further recordings on the disk but allows you to play it in other devices. to finallize the disk. just go to the filalise disk option in the "top menu".
