If the drive spins but can't read the DVD, the laser lens is probably dirty. Just run a CD lens cleaner disk, that should resolve the problem.

If the drive doesn't spin up, then the drive has had it or its got a bad connection.

You have to dismantle (Remove power and battery first) disconnect then re-connect the drive.

If it still fails to spin, your drive has probably hit the dust.

Hello,

The most common reason for the Laptop not reading discs is a bad drive. The following website sells the drives and does installs:

store.richspsxparts.com/wiiredvddr

This drive should fix any reading issues you are having with your DVD, or issues inserting your DVD or ejecting them (or lack thereof). This is the entire DVD drive assembly mechanism replacement for your Laptop including a new laser. If your discs are not ejecting, or you cannot insert a disc -- or you can insert a disc but it will not load, this is what you need to get your Laptop going again!
Hope this will help...

My ps3 only plays dvd but not games what should i do


Your DVD drive doubles as a blue ray drive. It performes 2 functions at the same time. A clear indication that your blue ray drive is malfunctioning, is that it will play DVD's but not games.

Problem is that my DVD combo TEAC-DW-224E-A reads cds but not DVD kindly help


Download VLC (google it) for free, see if that plays the dvd. Most likely your player has an issue, VLC plays ANYTHING (pretty much!) without issue.

If that doesnt work then you'll have a problem with the actual drive.

My DVD drive can read a CD-ROM and play an audio CD, but it cannot play a DVD in xp


Hi, In this case since you are able to play CD's and audio CD's using the CD drive and unable to play on DVD's firstly make sure that it is a DVD readable drive and in case you were able to read DVD's this is an issue with the DVD drive itself.This issue would mainly occur because of the spindle head in the drive going faulty.In case the computer or drive is covered by warranty please do contact your drive/computer manufacturer and get the repair done under warranty or else if not covered by warranty please contact a local technician to have the repair performed. Thank you for your patience and best wishes for your effort.

go to safemode and try reading CDs in safemode. If your burner still can't read CDs then it's most likely bad. You could get an external usb burner.
