DvD and Cds do not read.

Hi my lap top is only two years old and have just found that my cds and dvds no longer read. I had this problem before and had it repaired only last year. What could be the cause? Is this a common problem for this laptop?
Thanks in advance for your advice

    I've got the same problem with my presario R3000. CD drive just stopped working and the control panel says that the drives are not installed. Of course, the drivers are located on a CD!

I have purchased a tsst ts-t633a external dvd +-RW drive to link with an acer aspire a0531 netbook. The drive will read and write CDs but not recognise DVDs. Can anyone help?


You need a software made for DVDs which you can use for the CDs to.
To read DVDs (and CDs) use Power DVD.
To burn DVDs (and CDs) use Nero DVD. You may purchase them almost to any PC shop.

This is just an example. You may find some free software on the Internet but if you are not used with this I suggest to ask a friend to help you or to buy a software as I have already said.

Loptop wornt read cd or dvds


Hello,

if your cd wont read disk then maybe it got damage. you can change the drive let it repair.

Other method installing windows is to seek USB port DVD drive and then connect it boot the system using this external DVD drive.

method 2: You have to remove you have drive and attached to other pc using drive enclosure and then copy the installation disk to the drive. then boot you system if still boot and if not not then you have to boot using DOS base system. You can search documentation installaling XP using DOS command. you can search it in google.com.

may this help,

Philips SCB5265 DVD/CDRW drive only reads CDs but not DVDs


Take a can of air and blow it on the laser then try to see if it will read both cd's and dvd's. If it doesn't read one or the other then the dvd-rw would need to be replaced.

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.

What is the make and model of your DVD/CD RWdrive?
Check to specification of your drive.
Some combo drives can only burn CDs only and read DVDs & CDs.
