    Hi!

    my device doesn't read any dvd be it original, blank or written, it just won't open it, it sees any dvd as a blank.

    I have a Gateway Solo 9550 (older machine). The DVD-Rom reads movie DVD and DVD-Rw- without issues but the DVD-RW+ do not show up in the system at all. Why is that? I can't even boot from a DVD-RW+. Is the DVD rom defective or just old? Is there a fix for this?

You might have bought a blank dvd that is not compatible with your dvdrw.

try to clean your dvdrw first and then try to insert that blank dvd again.

If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

Trying to copy some pics onto a cd to get some disc space but my drive wont recognise the cd rw


do you have a cd writer or rom drive is the first thing you have to check, if it's a writer then put the disc in first and it should give you an option to write files to cd accept then follow the the instruction to add your files, assuming your running windows. iif that does'nt work check to see if your discs are + or - it may be your wriiter will only accept one kind

Dvd-rom trouble


Hi, first of all, I'd check if you have the problem with CD/DVDs burned (written on a CD/DVD writer) or you have it also with original CD/DVDs, which would be weird. Depending on your finding to the above point I'd do one thing or another, but to me does not look like a driver problem. I'd check with Toshiba support if there's a new firmware for your drive, this does improve the media the device can read and correct problems like the one you mention. To know the fimware version you're using, open device manager and go find your drive, right click on it and choose details tab. Normally the firmware revision is the number at the end of the instance. Good luck mate !

NEC DVD-RW 16x DL


If you switched to a different brand of DVD's try using the brand you used before. DVD burners are tested with certain brands of DVD's and sometimes the brands that aren't on that list don't work.
