    I have the same problem on my AVERATEC 5400.

    adamrass says "Finally, out of desperation, rolled-back the driver and restarted. Plays DVD's just fine now".

    Great! Now what does, "rolled-back the driver" mean? What are the steps I can use to do that. :-)

I had the same problem, tried everything. Finally, out of desperation, rolled-back the driver and restarted. Plays DVD's just fine now.

Recognizes DVD but doesn't recognize CD or CD-RW


Need more info about your problem to answer the question. What does "recognize" mean. Will it play a DVD or recognize a recordable, blank DVD? When you say "recognize" what software is recognizing, the OS or a burner software like Nero?

DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

Averetec 3200 dvd replace


If you are asking, how to manually eject a disc from a drive, I can help.

If you have a Disc stuck in the drive, you can always use a paper clip to preform a manual eject. Just unbend a paper clip, and stick it in the pin size hole on the front of the drive. Keep pushing until the drive door opens.

Not recognizing disc in D drive


Hi, well the short answer is NO. You cannot use DVD's in a CD Writer at all. So the simple answer is to get some CD-R and copy the files to them. OR get a Combo DVD/CD writer and install that as well.. and then you can use both..
