My dell laptop inspiron 1525 wont play dvd's, but it will play cd's.. i have windows vista


Two things to check: First, look on the tray edge - does it say DVD and CD, or just CD? If it does not say DVD,it will not play them. The second thing is you may not have software to play a DVD. Usually Windows will use media player, assuming you have a dvd player. You can also open "my computer" and the drive will show up as a DVD or just CD.

HP dvd play on my laptop malfunctioning


grinding sounds is from the dvd drive itself. Sounds like its not sitting properly in the drive or the holder that it sits in is going bad. Either way replace the drive and that will take care of the grinding sounds. Also the more grinding sounds that happen, the more of a chance you take on your dvds getting scratches on them and going bad eventually.

My "FN' key does not work.


Hi there,

my guess would be that the function and f10 key haven't been mapped to eject the cd/dvd drawer. Go into settings and check under keyboard and maybe under keyboard shortcuts.

In regards to the cds playing and not dvds, this could be 1 of two things.

1. The firmware isn't working properly. Go onto the dell website and download any drivers for your computer.

or

2. The lens for the dvd is broken. This is more likely. Since the cd's and dvd's are read by different lenses they generally fail one at a time.

This will require you to bring your laptop in for servicing.

Hope this helped.

Nathan.

I have roxio dvd le on my Inspiron 6000 and it will not play dvd's anymore


First thing Do you have the Roxio CD that which you could have recived along with the laptop?
If yes Great.. go to start>control Panel> Add/Remove Programs> uninstall everything which ever says sonic or roxio in the list you might have upto 5 to 6 or 7 in the list.. uninstall all of them one by one.. then restart the computer and install the CD completely the problem will solve..

If you dont have the CD..if you are in US call 8006249896 thats dell tech support number and tell them that you didnt recive a single cd along with the computer they will send you all the cds including you operating system..ask them to send the roxio cd also..

If you dont want to go through all of this just go www.filehippo.com and download the latest version of K-Lite Codec Pack under audio and video section in the main page..install it and then try to play the DVD using the same player or different player like media player or media player calssic which is very good..
You can access the Media player classic from start > all programs> K-lite Codec Pack> Media Player Classic open it and press Ctrl+D it will play your DVD

Reads and writes cds,reads dvds but does not burn dvds,


This drive is normally supplied with a couple of Dells.
(because of compatibility) Inspiron 700m,710m

If you have another machine for testing?
check the disk for contents to see if the data burn happened,
this will explain a few things in your processes.

Uninstall/Reinstall the drive and reboot then try again.

Have you tried a full system reinstall yet?
Did it fix your problem?Please let me know thanks

Some models of PIONEER cd players had radio frequency problems that caused them to work on and off. Are you near any radio or braodcast towers? Poorly shielded power supplies cause this as well. A weak laser diode in the pick-up assembly in model runs could be the problem. You might want to Google the model number and see if this is common for these units.
