Windows xp does not have a native driver for DVD writers. It always detects them as cdrom.sys. You need to use either the writing software supplied with the drive or Nero or equivalent

DVD-Rom will read the movie but won't write (burn) it. Bad block of memry


>> The Device has a bad block of memory, which Windows attempted to read.

Which CD/DVD disk are you trying to _read_ ?
Can you read this disk in a different computer ?
If not, then the disk is scratched or greasy or otherwise damaged.

Does the error occur when you try to start to _write_ ?
If so, the "blank" CD/DVD media may not be compatible with your hardware.
Find a "writable" disk from a different manufacturer, and try to write to it.
If that works, then you may need to do a "firmware-upgrade" on your CD/DVD-writer, to make it compatible with newer "blank" media disks.

Unable to boot win xp cd. not detected by compaq presario 5000 series interneal cd rom LTN 403 DQ24


Drive requires cd drivers to run Boot CD.
Some versions came with floppy disk to start cdrom drives, This will also require a floppy drive.

You may also try hitting f10 to enter bios setup make sure cdrom is bootable.

My drive will read DVDs but not CD/CD-ROMs


If your DVD/CDROM is not working ie..playing movies or not installing programs it may be because you have installed a software program that edited the regitry for the DVD/CDROM - (Limewire, any burning software, etc..) windwos installs an Upperfilter and or a Lowerfilter in the registry for the CDROM - to correct this follow these instructions:

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers.
To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box (Vista) or regedit in the Run box (XP), and then click Regedit in the
Programs list if in Vista or click Open in XP.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue. (Vista)
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkeys: (must be exact keys)
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
SYSTEM
CurrentControlSet
Control
Class
Once you have clciked Class the click Edit on the menu at the top
Copy and paste the following key inclcuding the curly braces into the Find What box.
Click "Find Next"
{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
3. Highlight by clicking on "UpperFilter" and "LowerFilter" ONLY - then hit Delete on the keyboard and select Yes

Reading Data CD's


Hmmm... were the cd's originally burned using that laptop? Or were they burned on a different pc?

It could be as simple as your cdrom doesnt like something about those cd's. Or it could be a flakey cdrom.

My suggestion, try reburning them to a different brand of disk using a different pc. Then see if your laptop will read them. If not, may need to replace the cdrom. Though it reads commercially manufactured cd's, if its flakey, it will have problems reading custom made cd's.

Other option, get a usb flash drive and copy those files from that cd, in a different pc, to the flash drive.

You don't need any special drivers or programs in order to copy mp3 files from a cd to your hard drive. Yet, you would need something in order to play them. Which media player does just fine.

Flakey cdrom or flakey cd's... hope this helps.
