The operating system, Drivers And type of computer all are a factor in why the dvd drive is failing.
i had this happen to me a while ago when i was upgrading and the dvd drives drivers didnt work on my operating system.

I would advise you to get a version of NERO 9 and install it.
Yes it is a burner utility but it also has the up to date drivers for most dvd and cd drives.

My pc will recognize any cd or dvd that i put in it except blank dvds. why? it used to work and will work sometimes. i went as far as to install new os. still same result. any advice


You got a DVD writer? If you've got a DVD reader then a blank DVD is not something it can deal with. You can fix it by buying a DVD writer or DVD rewriter drive and replacing your DVD or CD drive.

How do I burn/copy a DVD


you have to rip the dvd using software like DVDRipper. Then you can burn the resulting file to a 4.5 GB DVD. Usually the movie will be around 7.5 GB and the ripper reduces the size to fit that.

Dvd not working in xp


hi,
what that means is your dvd drive if fine and there is no hardware issue, this is a driver issue
the problem can be resolved by going to your desktop manufacturers website and reinstalling the drivers, if you have the driver media with you you can

right click my computer> properties> device manager > then remove the dvd drive from here
by selecting and removing it and then restart your system
when your system will restart the dvd drive will be redetected and now either xp will install the default drivers on its own or it will ask for driver cd/dvd if it asks for driver cd.dvd put it in and then install the drivers and it will work.

further queries are welcome

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.

DVD player stopped working


REstart the system and reinstall the DVD Player program that let the DVD Play.

maybe the DVD disc is required some codecs to play. try another player such as VLC player, or install the DVD player provided in your laptop DVD Rom. You can search and Download VLC player for free just search in google.

May this help, Please notify me before you rate, Thanks, Melnavz.
