    Hi,

    One CD just has jpegs on it another one is some software we want to install. The drive has worked fine for the last 2-3 years. We are running XP 2nd edition.

    The audio CD I put into the PC had it's own player. Not sure if this makes a difference.

    The CD work fine on our laptop.

    Regards

    Simon

    Hi,

    I inserted a windows disk and audio CD (not burnt) and the drive reads them both. I have inserted a number of CD's that are burnt and the drive does not seem to read them?

    is it possible that these were CD's you burned, without closing them? that only the laptop can read them, because the laptop did the burning?

    can you try a standard game CD or other professionally produced CD instead?

    I'd still recommend that you try a manufactured program CD in the drive that's having problems.

    when you insert an audio CD, does it show up in my computer as an audio CD, or is it still listed as blank?

    if your computer has a direct connection between the cd drive and the sound card, you MIGHT be able to play an audio CD, even though the operating system itself doesn't recgonize any cd's at all....

Have you tried to view data from a CD or a DVD disc?

Do you get an error message?

    First thing to do is try some other CD disk, such as software. See if it reads that. It is possible that the cd of images you burned was burned on your laptop but the session was not closed therfor you wont be able to view it on any other computer. So lets try eleminate the possibility that the cd drive is bad by inserting some type of software cd.

Too vague of a questionbut here goes. 1. Check disc for scratches. Could be directory is corrupt. 2. Are you sure it is eitrher an Audio CD or a Video DVD? If it is a computer data CD it won't play. If it is a DVD Rom it won't play either.

Lg cd/dvd rw will not play or record. but will play mp-3


It should "play" commercially-produced audio CD disks.
With the correct software (PowerDVD, et cetera) it should "play" commercially-produced audio/video DVD disks.
It seems to be reading "data" disks (MP3 files are just "data" files), and passing them to your software (Windows Media Player, iTunes, WinAmp) for decoding and playing.

You need software (Nero, or AShampoo Burning, or ...) to be able to "burn" CD and DVD disks.

DVD plays in DVD player is not seen at all by Windows XP


Hi,it's obvious from your problem that the particular disc that cannot be viewed on your computer is of a formatt not supported by the windows XP.some DVDs are of low quality which can be viewed practically on any DVD player but as a result of their low quality and the sensitivity of the Windows they are not recognized by your computer. In as much as other DVDS play on your computer,it means there's no problem with your computer,but an unsupported disc formatt is been trying to be viewed and there's nothing you can do to view a DVD formatt not supported by your computer.please don't be bothered.
Thanks and take care

Dvd not playing dvds


Basic Information:

i) try to choose  right burner for eg: Nero CD/DVD Burner

ii) try to choose the right format,

     for eg: MP3/MP4/ Audio Songs will come under Audio format
               in such case select "Audio CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner


     for eg: .DAT/MPEG/MP4/Video will come under Video format

                in such case select "Video CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner


     for eg: "DATA CD format" is only storing some data on CD/DVD iresspective whether it is                            Videofile or Audio file, 

                these "DATA CD formated" CD/DVD when played in DVD Player will play only Audio files 
                but no Video Files

When you want to create an audio cd, you select audio or mp3 in case you CD player also play mp3. Do not copy or write music file to your cd as data files.

DVD player repairing


Double-check your DVD player's user manual/spec sheet to see if it plays Mp3 format files at all. Find out, specifically what kind it can read.

If your Mp3 disc is a DATA CD instead of an AUDIO CD, then nothing besides a computer is going to play it.

Dvd


do you mean wont play on dvd players (connected to tv)
if so its because the software you are using is not compatable.or the way you are burning them.for instance if you use nero dvd (mp4)you can only view with nero but you can config to use with any player.If you mean it wont play on other computers its usually wrong format.you can maybe cure this by updating dvd drive firmware.

Will Not Play CD-Rs Part Deux


Checked specs- YES -supposed to play MP3's. Did you try other MP3 Audio disks in the DVD? You can try the MP3 disk in your computer to make sure it is OK. If it plays in the computer, have to suspect a problem with the DVD unit - probably the converter IC.
