I can't play dvds or open burn dvd media. what do you think i should do?


one problem i see is that your DVD drive is not properly cleaned or maintained. if that is so, you can just buy a CD, DVD lens cleaner and let it run onto your drive but if if this fails, maybe the lens is actually damaged. there are also DVD RW combo drives that reads only CDs after a long time use. this is cause by the lens' capability to detect DVDs or CDs played. as time goes by, lenses wears out.i suggest that if this is your problem, try to buy a new drive for your PC.

Compaq presario cd-rw/dvd-rom combo drive does not recognize dvds. the driver is installed but dvds do not play.


you may check youe BIOS settings by restarting the pc and repeatedly press F2. Then check your PC or system settings wherein there is a list of peripherals such as Floppy Disk, CD/DVD drive, Network Adapter etc. Those peripherals will tell you if they are enabled or not. use your arrow keys to select and check if the CD/DVD drive is enabled. Then press F10 to exit and hope that CD/DVD would work...

Sir my compaq presario model 2655ts coming with philips cd writer and dvd reader is not reading cds and dvd


Hi,
If you are having problem reading and writing cds and dvds. You can try running the following fix it patch from Microsoft. If the same doesn't resolve the problem , then you would have to consider replacing the drive. As the optical drive has a laser lens, that has life duration or capacity to read and burn disks . Once the same is reached you need to replace the drive.

My old compaq presario wont read my scan disc


Can you use that port to read any other device?What operating system are you using?Did it work previously?Windows 98 you will have to install drivers.Chances are that old computer has a usb 1.0 so it might not work.However try another device in that port or any usb port on the computer to see if any ports are working.Does your scan disk work on another computer.Have you done a windows update recently.Make sure you try all the above.
Good luck
