It sounds like a bad cd drive. Get it replaced and try again.

I CANT READ DVD IN MY CD DRIVE BUT VIDEO CD IS WORKING


your dvd drive has become faulty...it lost the potential to read DVD...but still it will read all kinds of CDs....try cleaning the dvd lens once using lens cleaner....
if it still does not read then you need to buy a new dvd writer...
it is not recommended to repair the old one....
it will not work good even after servicing,it may work for one or two times again it will not work....
new dvd writer for desktop computer will cost around 1100rupees....
for laptops you it will cost even more....
its better to buy an external dvd drives in that case for laptops....

Disc drive icon not shown even after cd is inserted


If you are receiving this Code 39 error and your CD or DVD drive is missing and has a yellow exclamation mark in Device Manager, I hope this information is to solve this error, follow these instructions: After removing these registry keys and rebooting, it may be necessary to reinstall any CD or DVD recording applications.
1) Close all open programs

2) Click on Start, Run, and type REGEDIT and press Enter

3) Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • SYSTEM
  • CurrentControlSet
  • Control
  • Class
  • {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
4) This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
  • UpperFilters
  • LowerFilters
  • UpperFilters.bak
  • LowerFilters.bak
5) If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

6) After deleting the keys, close the Registry Editor


7) Reboot your computer


8) Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.



Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

HL-DT-ST DVD RAM GSA-T20N ATA Device error code 10, Laptop cant read DVD and doesn't acknowledge that there is a disc in the computer, and it even says that the driver is up to date and functional. HELP?


hi,

Error Code 10. The device is not installed, The Device Has A fault, The devices driver is not installed correctly.

Possible Solutions:- Uninstall the device, and re-install it using the device manager, Or Add new Hardware wizard, After uninstalling.
Does the drive read a CD ? this would eliminate the Cd reading. As the dvd uses a different or power increased laser beam. Do you have a good program installed for reading DVDs ( Power DVD Or Similar )

Cd-rom


Will it read any CD or DVD or just not is particular one? If it is just this one, download the software directly from vendor website.

Only reads some disks.


Hi, if the PC's are older than 3 years or the cdrom drives are near it's end of life, it will make problems to read some CDR's. If you recorded the CD's you are trying to read, try recording at less than 4X speed.
Sometimes, even "original" or "silver" CD's will make problems because they are not recorded correctly at the factory.
If the problem is with a CDRW drive, it applies the same theory, the recording laser is damaged or used up. It will not record a legible CD or DVD even if the software says that the record operation ended successfully.
