    hi Marty,

    I am not quite that new. My dvd is a combo drive, LG
    Gcc-4320b, It will read and write cd. It is a DVD reader only not recorder. But it has stopped reading DVD's. I can not find why it not longer reads DVD. It try's to read them and then just ejects....I wondered if a driver needs to be updated or maybe i have set it for CD format only and did not realize it. Thanks for your patience.

Hello lrobinson65,

Here are 2 possible silutions:

1). Use a paper clip or pin to press in the small hole on the cd tray

OR

2). Click the start menu (lower left-hand corner). Then click on 'Computer'. Finally, click the right mouse button on the CD drive icon and click 'Eject'.

Have a great day,

Dvd won't open program


Does your dvd drive opens other dvd's if it does, that means your dvd has gone bad but if your dvd drive fails to play any dvd's than it's a problem with your dvd drive.

Best way to test it would be to insert a new empty dvd and see if your dvd drive opens it.

It is possible that the lens of the drive has gone bad and you will have to replace the drive to fix the issue.

Will not eject disk


CD drive is messed up. You should not have to open the case. I take a paper clip and stretch it out. Then insert it into the pinhole of the cd drive. You have to push kinda hard to get the drive to pop open.

Every drive I have ever seen has such a hole

TEAC DW-28E DVD/CD-ROM not reading TDK DVR+R disk


ON a computer than can read the disk and has CD/DVD burning software installed on it, check the status of the media sessions. If this was writtien as a multi-session disk and the session has not been closed, many older drives will have difficulty reading it.

DVD CD-R drive does not recognize a blank CD on toshiba sattelite


Try this before you enter disk.
  1. setup software or files to transfer when prompted to enter CDR, then place in drive.
  2. Or open my computer, select cd drive right click select, format disk. When prompt comes up for disk insert CDR.
Some systems have trouble with other manufactured formatted disk.
