My Lenovo g550 model slimtype dvd ads8a4s is playing CD's only not DVD's, it does not recognize them. What can I do?


Please double check your drive. GOTO My computer and there you will see disk partitions and optical drive type.. I mean your DVD drive does it says DVD or CDROM? Now if thats DVD then you need to check software you are using.. Its better if you can download VLC
Player thats the best software I have tried.. and no region issue.

Acer aspire 5733z does not detect dvd drive


This sounds like your dvd drive stopped working. try with different cds or dvds. If not there is a complicated way but if you are not familiar with computers don't do that. A service technician can easily solve it for you.

My HP notebook does not play DVD's.


Does it play CDs perfectly fine ?
Did you check with other good (branded) DVDs ?
If possible, remove this dvd-drive, connect it with another laptop, and check.

If problem started after you installed anything, try undoing it through System Restore (All Programs - Accessories - System Restore).

Boot the computer in safe mode (tap F1 or F11, select Safe Mode), log in as Administrator.
Check if it reads DVDs here or not.
Create a new user account (Control Panel - User Accounts). Restart computer normally, and log in using this new account. Now check if DVDs work or not.

If still not working, backup your important data (write on blank CDs, or copy in USB pen drives), and then format the hard drive. (Restart the computer, and tap F10 to initiate recovery from hard drive partition.)

You may also use the Recovery Disk you got with this notebook. (Insert disk 1 in the drive, and restart the computer, and just follow the instructions).

If still no progress, chances are the DVD-drive lens has gone for a toss. Buy a new dvd-drive.

Hope this solution helps you.

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

Combo Cd/Dvd Drive is not reading Cds nor DVDs


1. Remove your burner from your computer then open it by removing the screws under the burner.
2. When the cover has already been removed, get a cotton bud then soak it in alcohol to clean the lens. Because the lens might just be dirty. Then after that put the cover back by screwing it again then install it back to your computer.

Laptop CD/DVD drive won't detect CDs but will detect DVDs


sure..go to my computer..and see what disks are there?

if there are none, go to control panel, system device manager, and look at dvd drives and see that there is no marks on it(meaning that it's installed)

if not, remove that drive, click on actions/scan for hardware change, and go

you may need the install vista disk to make that happen, but that's unusual.
