My cd/dvdw Ts-H652L optical drive recognizes and plays cd's but not dvd's.


Hello
The laser pickup unit of the DVD player may either be dusty or dirty. Try to clean it, by inserting a lens cleaning disc into the player and play it until it pays completley. Then check it out.
If this do not help you, the laser pickup unit is faulty. It will be best to muy a new Player, rather than try to repair it, especially to computer DVD players. OK.

I recently bought Sims 3 for PC. So, when I open my IBM disk tray and put the disk in, the computer doesn't recognize it and I cannot install the game. This game was a little expenisve, so I would


Hi Elizabeth,

Depending on the model of your IBM PC, it could be that it has a CD drive and not a DVD drive. The Sims 3 game is on a DVD. If this is the case you will have to upgrade your CD player to a DVD player.

To test if your drive is working insert an original music CD into the drive and see if it plays. If it does play you most likely have a CD player and not a DVD player, which means you will have to upgrade to a DVD player/writer drive anyway.
These are relatively inexpensive and retail for approximately $20 to $50.

Feel free to reply should you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,

I cannot play a cd on computer tried setting info into windows media


If you cannot play a CD on your computer. Please try the following: 1. Make sure the IDE cables are properly seated in the CD Drive. Also try to reseat the power cable connecting your power supply to the CD Drive. 2. Make sure the CDROM is recognized by your system. To check if its recognize go to system properties then hardware. Choose Device manager and look for CD/DVD drives - check if it has a yellow question mark on it. If it has install a driver for that device or use windows update to update the driver. 3. If you can find another CD Drive. Try installing it on your system. 4. Install or update your windows media player. You can also use VLC player.
Thanks. Please rate. Let me know if you need further assistance.

I have a Sony Vaio desktop with XP. My DVD-CD


Have you tried burning a CD in the new drive? Because the drive is a DVD it will always be recognised as a DVD, but should work perfectly well with CDs both playing and recording.

Compaq V2000 - Service Tag V2220US Only recognizes the CD/DVD drive as "CD" Does not see it as a DVD Drive. Listed as: _NEC DVD+-RW ND-6500A in Device Manager.


Try updating your drivers from www.hp.com

If the issue is that it won't play DVD movies only then you probably need to install or re-install the DVD player software that should have come with your computer. If you don't have it anymore, simply download from HP.
