for laptops i suggest contacting the laptop maker and asking them what would work best for you and then trying to find it on Newegg.com .

Otherwise buy an external dvd burner and use that inplace of the internal drive.

My dvd-ram doesnt read original dvd,why?what can i do i have to do to makeit work?when i insert the original dvd it doesnt appear on pc.thank you


Hi lorena,

    Here is what I suggest you try.

  • Download and install CCleaner (free) from Piriform- http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner
    • Run the cleaner to remove old un-needed temp files

    • Select the StartUp tab and look for any programs that you know you installed but no longer use or need, and disable them. Caution, do not disable any system files unless you absolutely know what they do and that you do not need them.

    • Run the Registry cleaner, when asked if you want to backup the registry, select YES, and save to a file you will remember just in case. I have used this program hundreds of time on many different system and it has never caused a problem, but you want to be safe, backup the Registry.

    • If asked about a particular file that it wants to clean, select "yes to all"

    • Reboot


If this does not resolve your problem, try the following




If VLC will not play a CD/DVD, try this,

    • Use the Device Manager and uninstall the burners drivers

    • Run the Registry cleaner in CCleaner again, this time in Windows Safe Mode. Remember to backup the Registry

    • Reboot, Windows should reinstall the DVD burner

If you take all these step and you still can not play a CD/DVD, chances are your CD/DVD componet needs to be replaced. Good Luck,

    • If this helps resolve your issue, would you please rate the solution.

My cd burner will not burn cd's. it just makes a funny sound and pops up insert disc.


If the system is not in warantee, you will need to replace the CD burner drive. You can generally find a replacement for around $30. Depending on where you live you can find one locally or online.
Replacement is very easy.
Open the system to access the old CD burner, make sure you take note of where the cables (power and interface cable). Remove the old CD burner and replace it with the new CD burner replacing the power and interface cable.
If I were you, I would op for a CD/DVD burner so that you can read and write both CD;s and DVD's. Cost should be around $40.

How to install a dvd burner


First you shutdown your computer, then disconnect all power cords. I don't know if you have a tower or a deskpro, with the tower just slide the panel out pulling from the back, you may have to remove a piece from the front with a tower. Pay attension to how your cd rom is hooked up, I don't know if this is a combo (cd/dvd/RW) if it's a combo, if it is a combo you would have to take out the old drive and replace with the new, just pay attenion to how the old drive is hooked there should be two cords to connect to .  If there separate drives there should be an empty bay.  Let me know how your doing, and if I can assist you more.........Thanks, Heidi
