Dvd drive won't read disks


Hi,

If it used to work but now doesn't and you have changed nothing then the following will help.

You can try a CD Laser cleaning kit, you put a liquid on a disc and put it in the dvd drive.
It will clean the laser, hopefully this will work.

If it still doesnt work its most likely at the end of its life.

Try a Music CD, a DVD, and any other discs, make sure the discs aren't scratched.

DVD drives are extremly cheap these days,
I got a Sony DVD Writers for £18 delivered from Play.com

Its very simple to fit,
Switch off PC
Just take of side of the PC Case
Unscrew the 2 screws on each side of the dvd player, disconnect the wires .
Then fit the new one

The PC will pick it up after a restart and it wont need drivers

Goodluck

Dvd doesn't work in PC


Check if autorun is active. In Windows 7, this is found by Start > Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > AutoPlay. (In previous versions, it is in a similar location under the Control Panel.) The next thing to try is cleaning the lens if you can. Open up the computer and check if the data cable is loose (either from the optical drive or the motherboard). If these don't work, replace the optical drive. (Internal optical drives are about ~$20-30 for DVD R/W.)

I hope this helps.

HP CD writer will not work


These fail. If it was working and if you can see the CD icon but when you put a CD in and nothing happens, it's broken.
You have to replace it.
Good news is, they are not very expensive. These days, you can get a CD-DVD burner for not too much money.

My acer m1640 is my first ever pc . i want to burn a cd


from the model number that you gave it shows that you have a burner. try going to were the music folder is at and right clicking with your mouse on the music and hit the send to option then select your cd rom as a destination then it will burn it this way as well. also make sure you have cd-rw disc dvd-r disc will not work for this

Cd drawer broken and cant eject disc.cover has come off and is lost.


New DVD ROMs costs so little nowadays that any repair or wasting time of finding spare part would cost you more. You can buy new DVD writer for as little as 20$. http://computers.pricegrabber.com/dvd-rom-dvd-writers/p/7/lo_p=24/hi_p=26/x=71/y=11/st=filter/lo_p=20/hi_p=26/x=45/y=15

Dvd re-writer will not read any blank discs


if you have nothing on the cd then it won't read it cause there is nothing for it to read... so if you have a writing software that you can write the cd you can write the cd... only if there is something on the cd it will read......

DVD burning problem


if you have tried different dvd-r and dvd-rw discs, unfortunately it's a sign that your writer is failing to read the discs correctly, this normally happens when the writer is about to give up, although it may still write and read cd's but not dvd's
