My cd/dvd burner on laptop wont recognise blank dvd


You said that you are using Windows XP. So, you have an older computer. Have you looked in the Device Manager and verified that it can read DVDs. Older system so you might have a CD only drive in there.

My cd rom is not reading or even showen


try to clean it with cd cleaner. after that try your known good cd maybe its just the cd/dvd that has the problem. if still doesn't work try using cd first then dvd. because some combo drive fail to read cd but can read dvd or vice versa. also check for the cd or dvd speed, type and class.

My dvd writer no reading or writing


hi there,

Does the light flash on the front when a disc is inserted or have you recently installed it as a Primary/Secondary optical drive? Plus, just as a matter of interest it will only read DVD's & read/write CD's.

Your problem could be down to a number of causes including a corrupt driver, where you will have to uninstall the driver by going into Device Manager, clicking the + sign in front of 'DVD/CD ROM drives,' right clicking on the Optical Drive in question, clicking properties/Driver Tab/Uninstall (Advanced).

This will remove a corrupt driver & when you restart your system the Hardware Manager will recognise the said Combo Drive & reinstall the driver.

If it is only unable to read DVD''s then you may require the necessary Codecs for your preferred Media Player, to support various file formats. I wish you the best of luck.

Kindest regards

I am having trouble burning to a DVD-RW,it does not recognise the disc I have in the drive,it keeps asking for a DVD-R-RW, what is the solution, thanks , Graeme


Graeme,
The LG GCC4522B CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive is NOT a DVD BURNER.
It is a "combo" drive, which means that it can only READ DVD+/- discs and READ/WRITE CD's.
There is no firmware upgrade or any other modification that can convert your combo drive to a DVD burner.

I have cobo drive, drive can read and write DVD's but not CD's


Hi there. You may need to re-install your drives.

Open Device Manager, click the + sign next to DVD/CD-ROM drives. Right-click on the drive and choose Uninstall Driver. Shut down your system, and restart. When Windows starts it will detect the new hardware and install the software for it.

Also, try uninstalling your burning software, restart, and re-install. It may be that the software has got corrupt.

Hope they work, and let me know if they do or don't.

Thank you

Tim

My Lite-On combo sohc-5236v does not read CD but it reads DVD.


The reason for this is most likely Copyright protection. If this is the case, it will read DVDs as it is only a DVD-ROM, but what happens in the case of CDs, is that they recognise the drive as a Burner, and the Copyright that is embedded into the CD wont let the drive read it. This also happens with DVDs in some DVD burners.

The way to test this, is by getting a CD-RW disc that has music or files on it, put it in the drive, and see if it reads it. If it doesn't, then you may have a fault with the drive, but if it does read the CD-RW, then the only way round it that I know of, is to buy a CD-ROM drive and use both drives.
