Go to control panel/system/hardware/device manager and uninstall the Drive. Restart, and let the computer re-install the drive. If it still doesn't work, the drive has probably broken and will need replacing.

Sir how can i repair my t40 platinum videoke no disc

Check it by inserting an other known good disc. If the system do not recognize this disc too, check whether the disc is loading properly in the mechanism. If there is no problem to loading, the laser pick-up unit is faulty. In most cases, replacing the laser pick-up unit to ROMs found not effective, as original number unit will not be available at open electronic spare part market. Think more to buy a new one instead.

Please help me try to fix the play dvd error on my x box 360 easy

sometimes the laser moves all the way to the back of the dvd-rom drive and won't pick up the disc
Once you get your case off the system, lift the dvd-rom out and remove the 4 screws on the bottom.
if the laser is in range of the disc then you should take a cotton swab with a dab of alcohol on the end and clean the laser head ( never touch the laser)
then put the dvd-rom together but leave the case off of the xBox.
Test with a game, if it still does not read then you need to buy a laser from an online store
I recommend eBay - there is a seller from Brooklyn New York that I buy all of my repair parts for, he has a eBay store by the name of YallStore. His shipping time is phenomenal!
and The laser cost less than $10

Not recognising dvd player/not playing dvds

Sounds like the laser pick-up is not reading the disc, or the spindle motor is not spinning so the dvd can be read.

Hi Lee,
Your lasers on the way out.
it,s all to do with the power output of the laser head, and the angle for reading the 2 different disk types.
i,d suggest getting a new laser fitted. not too expensive usually with older consoles. Try E-Bay :)

Can I playback my movies on a DVD-ROM drive?

No, DVD-RAM disc recorded on the DVD Camcorder will not play back on every drive. Some of the new DVD-ROM drives designed to be compliant with the new DVD-RAM book2 standards will playback discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. Many previous DVD-ROM drives on the market that came out before the DVD-RAM standard was released will not play back discs recorded on the DVD Camcorder. HITACHI manufactures DVD-ROM drives for some PC manufactures as OEM products. HITACHI model GD-7500 DVD-ROM has DVD-RAM read/write compatibility.
