Listen for the dics to spin up. If it is doing that, then the drive is recognizing that a disc is there, it just can't read it. Try opening up the unit and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that doesn't resolve the problem, the optics are bad and the drive will need to be replaced.

It will not play Verbatim DVD-R disc that I burnt on my computer.


If it can read any other disk, you should burn your disk again because burning process was incorrect. your computer can't recognize the disk. In this case, probably you can't do anything, no way to try to read a bad disk if computer can't even "see" it.
By the way, you should test to read the disk on some other computer.
If happens with ALL your disks, your optical player is defective.
Again test reading with other computer if record was made correctly
As for your device, you should check if worth to repair and decide if repair or replace it.

My computer says that it has Cyberlink DVD 9 on it. But I can't play any DVDs on it. What shall I do?


First, gotta make sure you have a DVD drive, most modern computers do: DVD, DVD/ CD-RW, or DVD-RW drives are commonplace these days. If you have a DVD drive and it doesn't play anything, then more than likely you have a defective drive (DVD drives not working with DVD discs is a fairly common type of failure - insofar as failures go).

To be absolutely certain, try playing an original, commercial DVD movie - one that you know is good - if it still doesn't play it then it is, in all likelihood, a failed DVD drive.

JLMS DVD-ROM XJ-HD166 DVD/CD ROM Drive does not acknowledge disc in drive after having the computer set back to factory


Does it not acknowledge dvd disc only or cd or dvd both. If it doesn't read the dvd disc, or able to play dvd disc, but able to exlpore regular cd's, then you have a codec error, and you need to download a dvd codec like powerdvd for it for your system to play dvd disc. Check to see if your dvd-rom drive appears in the "my computer" window, if it is there, but wouldn't be able to play anything, then it could be a driver issue. so make sure in the hardware , the drivers is installed and working properly. If it is working properly and driver is installed, then you got a bad drive, the optical laser lenses isnt reading or the spindle ain't working anymore if you don't hear disc being loaded when inserting the disc.

My IBM R51 laptop can't read any other cd/vcd


Hello,

its either its a lens problem or that was how the CD/DVD Drive was made.

There are some drives that doesn't play white face discs, that is, they select disc and don't play all CD's, so maybe yours fall under this category.

How long have you been using your laptop and has it ever played Cd/Vcd's before?

If it plays them before, then it means your drive's lens is weak, but if it has never played them before, then it means that's how the player was made.

Which ever way, you still have an option of replacing the drive if you wish.

Take care.

Trying to burn photos from dell laptop to DVD-RW blank disc . "error - no disk in drive"


Try another disc first ,if no luck than try another disc manufacturer. If it does not help check if you can play anything from this drive if no, check drive connection in your laptop you can also can check BIOS settings for this DVDRW drive and settings for IDE or Sata data transfer mode make shure it works in Ultra DMA not PIO mode. Be carefull with BIOS Setup!!! If nothing helps replace drive. Good Luck!
