Hello,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Good luck

M lg bp145 quit playing blue rays but it will play dvds. Why?


Blue ray DVD's are read by a Blue violet LASER. I know that sounds pretty obvious but the colour blue is closer to the upper end of the spectrum and therefore has a shorter frequency and therefore you can generate and read much narrower data tracks. DVD's and CD use an older technology and use Red laser light which has a much wider and therefore less compact track size. So with a lower track density you get less information on a DVD.

The blue laser can be used to read both formats (and CD) but when reading the Blue ray disc the accuracy required is far greater to hit the track. Tracking errors caused by worn gears steppers and spindles can cause the Blue ray to miss the track but still have enough tolerance to read the much wider DVD/CD track.

The laser head isn't one laser, it actually produces two separate wavelengths, one for Blu ray discs and one for Red ray (DVD/CDs)

You can have a condition where the "blue-violet Laser diode fails but the red laser diode is still working. In this condition, it will exhibit exactly the effect you are experiencing.

Hi, I need help. Just purchased the acer timeline x 4820TG. The dvd player could not read any disc. I realised this when I tried to install an anti virus software. Tried other cds as well and still it...


DVD-RW drives are very straightforward to install. Just double check your data and power connections to the drive. If these are ok, then it is most probably a hardware issue. You should get this drive replaced.

Have a Micro Innovations Model IC445C webcam that came with a CD, the CD doesn't do anything, now what


Hello Ruebesams, hi, here are the steps you need to do and check:
  1. Have your CD/DVD drive checked, try other CDs and see if it can read other CDs.
  2. Is your webcam CD a DVD? Placing a DVD on a CD drive will not do anything. you need a DVD drive to read DVD disk.
  3. Ask a friend if you can use his or her computer to copy the content of the CD or DVD to a flash drive, so that you can install the driver using a flash drive on your computer.
  4. If your driver disk still cannot be read by any other computer, I suggest you bring it back to your dealer and have it checked.

This drive reads a dvd but not cds. do you have


may be it's only a DVD ROM drive not a combo,
you will need a combo to read both DVD and CD
if it was reading CDs earlier then the CDs might have scratch in them, try with new CD.
did u make changes to the cables inside, if you did check if the cabels are connected properly to the drive

Dvd burner not burning


When you get no disk error, that is usually because of a problem with the optical laser lens that is dirty, faulty or opaque, and will start operating on certain disks better than others.

In that case you will hear disk spinning, whirring and clicking, but the TOC (table of content track at start of CD/DVD will not be read, therefore the error.

Whe this problem is starting you may be able to read only CD, DVD, or for example only DVD-R and not +R , or only to read and not to write and so on. After more prolonged usage , often the unit goes losing the rest of functions, and ends up not reading anything at all.

If instead there is no noise, and disk does not spin at all , then there is a faulty motor, or the motor micro-switch is bad. This situation is far less common than the lens problem.

Try first using a CD/DVD cleaner disk to clean the lens. If that does not work you will need to disassemble the drive , and clean lens directly with q tips and isopropyl alcohol, or to replace the CD/DVD RW drive unit.

Dell laptop latitude c810 dvd - cdrw drive not working


I would suspect that your CD laser is bad (CD uses a different laser than DVD), and therefore should be replaced. Here is an ebay search to help you out: http://search-desc.ebay.com/search/search.dll?sofocus=bs&sbrftog=1&maxrecordsreturned=300&frpp=50&from=R10&satitle=c810+cd-rw+drive&sacat=-1%26catref%3DC6&fts=2&sargn=-1%26saslc%3D2&sadis=200&fpos=60169&sabfmts=1&saobfmts=insif&ftrt=1&ftrv=1&saprclo=&saprchi=&fsop=1%26fsoo%3D1&coaction=compare&copagenum=1&coentrypage=search Best regards, torgo
