In an optical drive, two optical read heads are present—one for CDs, and the other for DVDs. What you are describing is a very common symptom of a drive where one read had has gone bad but the other continues to work. Unless the problem is an optical obstruction like dust (possible, but very unlikely), this particular unit will never read DVDs again. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

My combo drive is not reading CDs but reading DVDs perfectly


a different laser is used to read CDs than is used to read DVDs. The laser for you CD reader has most likely gone out of alignment. It's time for a drive replacement.

Cdrom doesnt recognise blank dvd. error message


Its only cd writer burner and can only that it can read dvd disc also. That is why its called combo. But burning blank dvd it can't. But if you want buy some dvdburner too.

No supported disc burner found


Ok, try and re-install the class filter drivers by in stalling the motherboard/chipset drivers for your system. These can be found either on the website of the motherboard manufacturer, the chipset manufacturer, or even the website of your computer manufacturer.

Another thing to try, would be to uninstall all your media and burning software, and then re-install them 1 by 1, and see if this works.

Hope it works

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

My DVD/CD-ROM can not read dvds


DVD/CD-RW combo drives are capable of reading the DVD's but cannot burn so try playing a DVD with some content on it also Download VLCPLAYER 
from :http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
if you don't have a DVD player already on your system. As far as CDs are concerned it can both read and write to CDs

Not reading DVD


It's common problem with combo drives in notebooks, they don't seem to last long. Try this:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers. If the problem persists the laser is faulty in the drive and the drive will need to be replaced.
