Dvd rw do not need drivers to work on windows, at least from 98 onward. There must be a different reason why it is not working. If you did not do anything on hardware, and your pc had not been kicked or banged, common reasons are windows corrupted or faulty dvd drive.
To solve the first problem do a system restore to a date when the dvd was working.
If the drive is faulty(the second case) you will need to physically replace the drive unit.
Finally, if you think your computer received an impact shock (eg a bang or a kick), it may be the dvd SATA or PATA cable out of place.

DVD RW doesn't usually need drivers. Is the system asking for the driver? or do you have another reason why you need driver?

Can you explain problem a little more ?

Thanks,
Lolita

Why my DVD player doesn't read DVD-RW. It worked fine for many years. It can read DVD-R but since a week, it doesn't read DVD-RW any more. What can I do ?


You can try to update the firmware on the DVD unit. The most likely reason is the color (wavelength) of the discs you bought or have. Most burners (and even some players simply can not see the color of certain brands of DVD-RWs. Each vendor has a wavelength assigned to them. Most players will state in operator manual if they support the DVD-RW discs.. If not sometimes you luck out and the disc color (wavelength) falls into the range of the reader's vision. Mods are possible through firmware revisions... Research your player to see there are mods out there for it.

I am am not sure though if you are talking about a stand-alone DVD player or PC DVD burner though to know for sure.. Let me know.

My dvd drive doesnt open on my Compaq Presario SR2150NX, i finally got it open with the manual open, but im trying to install windows 7 on it, but when i try it says theres something wrong with something...


Hello,

Check to see if the DVD drive is connected to the power supply and the IDE connectors.
Can your dvd drive be displayed in "My Computer"
If yes, then it is connected, so, you will have to reinstall the drivers. They could be corrupted?

Thank you for using Fixya,

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

Computer


From what I have found, that system should come with a DVD-RW drive by default.
  1. Check device manager, see if the drive is detected by Windows as a DVD type drive.
  2. If the drive is ID'd as a DVD drive, but will not browse a DVD movie in MY COMPUTER then there is a failure of the DVD optics of the drive and it needs to be replaced.
  3. If you can browse a DVD, but not play one, then you most likely need a DVD codec installed to read DVDs. Search google for the K-Lite Codec pack.
  4. If you are trying to burn to DVD media, ensure you have a DVD buring software installed as XP has no native DVD burn capability.
