Trty to open the tray and clean the laser eye ( optical unit) with a clean swab , with very gentle brushes to clean the lens. try to see if the cd works, or spins or tries to read. if there is no signs of any action it is possible that you have an hardware problem. The last that can be done is to reinstall the DVD drivers into the system once again. If this wont solve I am afraid that you will need to check your motherboard for hardware issues that can be expensive too.
Hope you try. Good day

SOURCE: i have a dell inspiron 1525 laptop and my cd/dvd

The CD, CD-RW, DVD, DVD-RW, Blu-Ray and any other drive that uses a laser to read data from a CD. In general, most optical drive problems can be resolved by:

  • Updating the optical drive firmware
  • Updating the burning software
  • Updating the DVD playback software
  • Updating the computer's video driver in cases of video playback issues
  • Updating the computer's audio driver in cases of audio playback issues
To download the Firmware of your machine click here. i have selected the default 1525 but if you click on enter the service tag, it will give you your computer's firmware. or you can check it in device manager as well.
you can also try deleting the upper and lower filters. in regedit.

in vista. click on start /type regedit in start search.
then continue the action and then click on the +HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / + SYSTEM / +CURRENT CONTROLSET / +CONTROL /+ CLASS /+ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} and on the right side look for upper filters or lower filters and delete them. and then restart the computer. it should fix this.

in case the issue is not resolved. you might need to get the optical drive replaced.

if this information was helpful. please rate the solution.

Inspiron 1525 PC Notebook: can i use Dell Inspiron 1525 to burn dvds? How to ...


Hi Richard, yes you can burn DVDs with your laptop. Check the CD/DVD disc that came with your computer. However, I understand its pre-installed either with Roxio or Sonic utilities. On the other hand, if you have Vista and Windows 7 it will do as well.

Please comment if the information provided has been helpful for the improvement of my support assistance. Thank you and regards.

Booting with External DVD for Dell Inspiron 1525


Power on your system, Press F2 on Dell logo. This would take you to system BIOS. Ensure that USB controller is ON, and USB emulation is also set to ON. Save settings and Exit. System would reboot now. Press F12 on Dell logo, and select USB ROM as the boot device. This should boot your computer through your External drive. If it still doesnt work, try switching to a different USB port. If none of these steps work, it may be a problem with the boot sector on your External drive.

Good Luck!

I have a problem with the dvd disk drive on a dell inspiron 1525


Always be sure to close any open programs you do not need to run at that particular time. Also, close your internet connection. The reason for this is to allow the maximum amount of memory to be used by your media software.. Try this. It should work, ok? GOOD LUCK!! Lucky4lynn2

Dell 1525 can read CD but does not read DVD


Hi, If your Dell 1525 has got a CDROM drive or CD Burner/Writer then you can only Read and Write the CD's

But if you got a DVD optical Drive then you can Read CD and DVD too...

If you need more clarifications on the same, pls send me the Service Tag of your computer. ( you can find it underneath the laptop)
