It takes about 10 minutes of restarting and opening my disc tray until my xbox reads that there is a game or dvd in the tray! and it then sometimes says there is trouble reading the disc. Is there...


The laser could be dirty, meaning it has a build up of dust, etc on it. Try using a cleaning disc, which is specially designed to clean CD, DvD and other electronics with a laser reading system. You can find these at your local electronics store, Walmart, Target, etc. They are readily available. If that doesn't correct the issue, then you may need to take it in to a specialist.

Not read cd and dvd


It's possible that your laser is dirty. Would run to walmart or radio shack and buy a dvd/cd cleaner. Clean the deck, load with dvd/cd, see if it works.

MY DVD-RE IS NOT READING ANY CD OR DVD..WHEN I M INSERTING ANY DISK IT KEEPS ON READING IT


Try using a Iris eye cleaning disk. Mosxt times when constant reading occurs or it says no disk it is the iris inside that has become occluded with dirt. Checkl that there are no finger marks on the disk and it is clean too

Once you have run the cleaning disk use a non scratched clean disk to check its load and read ability before trying in the disks that you had trouble with.

If they still give trouble then the problem will be with those disks and not the laser in the unit.

I HAVE A PORTRAIT CD IT SAYS TO INSERT THE CD-ROM


Click on the start menu in the lower left corner of your display.
Click on "My Computer".

A window similar to this one will open and you will see your CD/DVD drive.

If double clicking the drive does not open the CD, right-click the symbol with your mouse and choose "Play" or "Open".

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Pioneer DVD R/RW drive DVR-K17LA not reading


Normally no drivers are needed for CD drives other than the ones built into Windows. It might be a dirty lens that is causing the trouble. When the tray opens on a laptop CD drive the lens is exposed and can get touched or exposed to dirt. Try gently cleaning it with a cotton swab to brush off the lens. If the problem continues, the laser may have worn out and is too weak to read now. You can find replacement drives online, or use a USB plug-in external drive.

When i place a recordable dvd it reads "no disk"


If you have +R/RW you can use only +R or RAM DVDs.
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=3610576#Specifications
Also check the allowed maxximum recording speed (refer the manual, please). If you have for example 4 you can not use disc higher when 4 (it has to be marked 1-16)
If you use 2.7 you should use only discs there it marked 2.7 speed etc
If everything seems OK you need to use CD/DVD clening disk ($6 Walmart)
Please kindly let me know if you need more info. I am here to help
Good Luck

Read only cd-r not dvd


Have the same problem, it used to work and suddenly it wont do it anymore. I guess this is due to windows XP updates. Windows says that the driver is up to date and I also installed the latest firmware. I am using Nero 7 to burn. I had troubles before but somehow fixed it. Now when I insert a DVD (data) and try to open the dvd drive the whole computer hangs. The content shows for a moment before the computer freezes so it IS in the DVD.

Having a trouble with my DVD-ROM - IBM ThinkPad T42


Internal the pickup assy. (the laser) there are three components that read the discs, one for DVD one for CD and one for the DVD-ROM its likely that the DVD-ROM laser has gone out. Take the drive out and get the part number and look it up online on ebay or the like :-)
