There may be a hardware issue with your drive. However, it can also get dirty after use and just sitting there. You can buy a drive cleaner at almost any electronics retailer, and they are fairly inexpensive. If this doesn't work, you are probably in the market for a new drive.

Sounds like you need to install/reinstall a codec pack, for it to be able to read different formats such as VOB,DIVX,MPEG,AVI etc.You may also have a faulty optical drive or one with a dirty lens but i would try installing a better quality codec pack first then look to your optical drive as the problem.Thanks...Lee

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

My writemaster sh-w162 will reconise cds but not dvds can you help, im using library computer .it will copy or burn cds not dvds


actually the problem of your writemaster is the speedometer or what we call Laser Eye. This Laser Eye is damage but not totally can read only CDs but not DVDs, you can no longer burn a DVDs on it, i experience to that, only CDs can read and write on it. This time you buy a new DVD Writer to replace on it, or if warranty you can send it back to the Store you buy. I tell you it is still not working.. Just buy a new one. Good Luck!

My samsungsd616tdvd drive cannot play or read dvd-rw cds.


Please note that the formats of DVD and CD are quite different. Whereas a DVD drive can handle both DVD and CD, a CD drive can only handle cd formats. Furthermore, a drive that reads both formats does not necessarily mean it can handle the writing aspect ok. You need a drive that is capable of writing/burning DVD. Most drives that come along with pcs can only write CDs but able to read both. So check your drive to see whether or not it can write on DVDs ok. Good luck
