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!

What would cause a panasonic cp 67 dvd/cd player to play only cds. How do I adjust the reader?


It is most likely a permanent fault as CDs and DVDs require the laser to focus differently. If the unit is a few years old it will not be viable for economic repair.

Does not read Cds or DVDs


most sony CD and DVD players have a digital signature design to play CDs and DVDs that are original and licensed. some CDs or DVDs dont work since the player does not recognize or scan any digital signature embedded in the CD or a DVD. 2nd, lens problem causes most players not to read CDs nor DVDs. you can try to buy CD or DVD lens cleaners to have your lens cleaned.

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

My writemaster sh-w162 will reconise cds but not dvds can you help, im using library computer .it will copy or burn cds not dvds


actually the problem of your writemaster is the speedometer or what we call Laser Eye. This Laser Eye is damage but not totally can read only CDs but not DVDs, you can no longer burn a DVDs on it, i experience to that, only CDs can read and write on it. This time you buy a new DVD Writer to replace on it, or if warranty you can send it back to the Store you buy. I tell you it is still not working.. Just buy a new one. Good Luck!

Sony CX995v "Cannot Play" message on DVDs but plays CDs O.K.


Hi...
The laser goes thru a different lens arraignment for DVDs.
Take it to a TV shop and have them "blow out" the laser assembly with some CO2 and clean the lens.

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.
