My rom re ads cd but not reads dvd


DVD drives have two different pickups for CD and for DVD, If yours is reading one but not the other, the lens is fried. You'll have to get a new lens part or get a new drive. Considering a good dvd drive these days are about 25$ I would say forget about the lens, make a quick trip to your computer store or preferred online store and get a new one.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

DVD NOT READ


if you are good at opening then open the combo drive and clean the lens once by using some lens cleaner solution and then refit it it should work ...

if you still persist the problem then think that the life of the combo drive is getting down and the time to purchase new one is getting nearer ..

after some days your combo drive will fail to read the cds but it will read occasionally for some days after that it will not read anything that s because the lens is becoming weaker ...

at the cost of replacing the lens you can purchase the new dvd writer ...

but also try cleaning the lens with some lens cleaner solution after that it may work for some days ..

the only problem with the combo drive is the lens will be weaker than the normal dvd writer or cd writer so after some days of usage it fails to detect dvds followed by it fails in detecting of cds too ...

thank you

Cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive


Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.
