Because Compaq Armada does not have DVD Drive in it. If you are trying to install DVD Drive in it would not work as it is not compatiable with ur Notebook

What is your laptop and OS? Is the DVD rom ID'ed in computer? Is it listed in Device Manager? Have you tried other Media? DVD, CD, different formats?

What doese code 37 mean for dvd rom


Try this.

Make sure it has power (ejects). Check Device Manager in Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Right click My Computer > Manage. Select Device Manager > View > Show Hidden Devices. Now delete all DVD/CD-ROMs and reboot. Windows will say "New Hardware Found" and install.

DVD RAM change to CD Rom when i inset a disc


Check your computer drivers for that drive. It may be a driver error. It has happened to me before and I fixed it by reinstalling the drivers. It should be a software issue if you can still read CD disks.

PHILIPS CDRW/DVD SCB5265 ATA Device cannot play most DVDs


I'm guessing you may have locked the DVD region. If you right-click on the device in Device Manager and click the Region tab, does it say 0 changes available? Acer won't fix this, and claim you have to replace the drive. Can't find a firmware flash for this drive online, will post back here if successful!

How can i reset my cd/dvd region in my acer aspire 4715z series, i plan to do this my cd/dvd rom is choosing a disc to play, i think some change the cd/dvd rom without my knowledge and I'm not able to fix...


To change the region code on your DVD player go to Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager and expand the DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on your DVD drive and click on Properties then click on DVD Region tab. You will see the number of changes remaining (you can only change the region code 4 times and then it locks on the last region change and no further change is available). You will see the Current Region and You can change the region in the New Region box.
If you have run out of changes then you have a problem, this can be fixed. The hardest way is to upgrade the firmware on the DVD drive to a region free firmware BUT if you install the wrong firmware or stuff up the upgrade your DVD drive will be a piece of junk.
The best way is to install a piece of software that defeats the region code. There may be some free software on the Internet but I use DVD Region Free + CSS Free from DVD Idle, it not expensive and I have no problem viewing DVDs from any region.
Use this link to DVD Idle WEB site.

Acer aspire 6920 18.4 inch screen! I cant get blue ray dvds


According to the ACER Aspire 6920 specs, it does not have a Blue-ray player only DVD CD R/W drive. Therefore it cannot play blue-ray movie disks.
The specs of the DVD drive are as follows :-
Optical Storage
  • Type DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM - Integrated
  • CD / DVD read speed 24x (CD) / 8x (DVD±R) / 6x (DVD±R DL)

Burnt songs and they wont play in my car???


im assuming you have a dvd player in your car as opposed to a regular cd player

you need to look in the manual of your car stereo and see what kind of discs it can read... there are dvd+r, dvd-r, dvd-wr, dvd-ram, dvd-r (dual layer), etc, etc....

make sure your using the correct format disc and also make sure when you burn the music that your burning them in a file format compatible with your stereo (wmv, mp3, etc) check the manual

DVD no video output


This was probably caused by an update,just reinstall your DVD encoder/decoder software.

My dvd rom wont play dvd only cd's


DVD/CD players use two different lasers. One to read DVD and one to read CD. Sounds like your DVD laser burned out. Lasers last about as long as light bulbs do.

While Playing the DVD


You probably need to clean out the pc. Get rid of programs that are not needed or used. Do a "Disk Cleanup", Defrag until it takes only about 1-2 min to complete. Get an Anti-spyware/malware as well as an Anti-spyware program and run it once a week. You might want to also invest in more RAM. 512mb these days isnt much.
