Also got the "no play" error. Opened the casing and discovered the disc was not spinning. A gentle nudge got it spinning again. Ours has been playing continuously for almost 3 years so it may be that it is near the end of its life anyway...

There is a difference between a CD "music usually or data" and "DVD". Some players/computers only play CD's. Some are DVD/CD players/writers. Which is yours. If you have a CD player, it will never play a movie. Put in #1.a CD and try. If it works good. Then put in #2. a DVD it might not be a DVD player. Past that it would be a defective player. Get a lense cleaner disk at y computer/variety store". Insert it in your computer and run the program.lay a movie. If it is scratched or dirty. Clean and try again. No luck, You have a bad player of software issue. The Disk player can be slid out and replaced at any computer store. $59? Good Luck. John
You may try burn by CD to CD burn but if you want to select files that you want to burn, you have to ripped the music from the Music CD by using Window Media Player 10 or higher. Or try using software that ripped music from CD.
This is the instruction of CD to CD:
1. Insert the source disk 2. Then hit burn or copy to CD on your HP CD & DVD burner software or application. Then it will be temporarily copied to the hard drive. 3. after it finishes copying the source disk, you will be ask to insert a blank CD then hit continue or OK
Please reply or respond if this doesn't work so that I could provide you another solution and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Kindly check first your software of your system.. sometimes occurred due to low performance of a system (software). do one thing, if the music your playing is from the disk... try to copy all that music from the disk and paste temporary to your hard drive.. once your done coping.. try to play the music from you hard drive.... if still same operation of your complain, means that the problem was on software....
What OS and burn software are you using? Can you see the music files when you look at the file explorer on the computer (My Computer or Computer in Windows and double click on the optical drive)? Check if the disc has any scratches.
If you see the music listed on the optical disc, check if the disc was finalized. (Again in Windows Computer, right click on the optical drive and it should be an option if the disc hasn't been finalized.)
If there are no files on the CD-R, make certain that the disc isn't being formatted before you try the burn. (Formatting should only be done on R/W discs.)
If the music files are on the optical disc and the disc was finalized, your CD player is not tracking across the disc properly. Try a lens cleaner. It may need repair and I've never successfully repaired a CD drive (the only ones I've had fail were in computers and were cheaper to replace). The mirror and the belt are the most likely places to have issues.
Go to this link and click on the Fixit box. Microsoft has an issue with CD/DVD recognition and created a patch. This happens a lot when Windows Update runs and installs SP3. Hope this solves your problem. If it doesn't, right click on your DVD drive and ensure that recording is enabled. Hope this solves your recording issue.
When you say it won?t read are you trying to play commercial DVD movies or read DVD data disks?
If you're trying to play movies then you need a couple of things the first being some type of player program. Real player works as does Windows media player but usually DVD drives come with a striped down version of PowerDVD or WinDVD.
If you in fact have a player installed and when a DVD is inserted in your drive it doesn't play it may not be configured to automatically play DVDs. Try opening your player program and trying to manually play your DVD.
Let us know if you have any success or if you need more assisted. If you do let us know what player program and operating system you have and any error messages that may appear.
