1 Answer

My drive plays DVD's but will not read CD-ROM ? it did at one time is this a setting error

16X DVD(+/-)R/RW 12X RAM (+/-)R DL LightScribe SATA drive

I Have a HP Pavillion a1730n that is 9 just 12 months old. It will play DVD's fine however it will not read CD's or play music cd's at this time. I have tried muti steps. IE checked the device manager it is good and I have uninstalled and reinstalled good here and I have downloaded a program HLV Compatibility due to being told with vista I did not have the drivers. I have went to HP's web site and updated all drivers at this time. do you think this is a seting or the drive is bad. It did play cd's when I bought it. but now I can only get the drive to read DVD's. I was wanting to install purchased software and it will not read the CD-ROM. any suggetions would be great thanks

    what does it do when you put in a cd/non-dvd in the drive? Does it spin or does it say the disc is blank?

DVD and CD require different spec lasers (DVD requires 1.3nm compared to 2.1nm for CD)

It seems like your CD laser is broken, although your DVD laser still works. Replace the drive, it's not too expensive.

    Emachine EL1200 won't burn dvd's.


    I researched the Emachine EL1200 and it IS equipped with a DVD burner so there is no reason it shouldn't work. Return it while it is still under warranty. There is a 1 year warranty.

    If it is out of warranty (system is older than 1 year), the drive can be replaced.
