Either your CD/DVD drive is dirty & needs to be cleaned, or the drive has gone bad & needs to be replaced.
First, try to take the drive off the laptop. Open the drive & blow compressed air into it (from a can of compressed air) to clean it. You could also clean the lens (the small round glassy object inside the drive) using lens cleaning tissues & lens cleaning fluid.
If this did not fix the problem, you will need to replace the CD/DVD drive with a working one, or use an external CD/DVD drive

Cds wont play in dvd-rw player


The only discs that a DVD player is guaranteed to read are DVD discs. Support for CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW may be included, but is by no means guaranteed.

CD-R was designed to be read by an infrared 780nm laser. DVD uses a visible red 635nm or 650nm laser, which aren't reflected sufficiently by the organic dye polymers used in CD-R media. As a result, many DVD players can't read CD-R media. Some DVD players come with two lasers so that they can read CD-R.

But as I have already stated that Most DVDs today have the tendency of playing CDs. So if your DVD player is new then it must have that support. Have a look at the quality of your CDs also.

Cd player won't rip certain cds


"Quality" of the CD's has a lot to do with it. The lower the quality, the more likely better CD burners won't acknowledge them.

When I try to listen to the cd's, it won't play them. It tries to acknowledge them but the player won't play them


CD players commonly will not recognize some types of CD, eg MP3 recordings, or maybe CD-RW recordings.

However if this is happening with CDs that would previously play OK, then it could be

- scratched or dirty CD surface
- contaminated laser lens in the player
- laser lens has become misaligned

The last 2 need a service technician, but it may be cheaper to buy a new player.

My G4 Powerbook stopped acknowledging cds of any kind in the cd-rom drive. it was around this time that it appears the USB ports stopped responding. inititially i got an alert the the OS could not find the...


Before I go over the top and actually call you virus infected (because the classic signs are close enough to make the call) let's call a holiday and have you get "Clean My Mac" on there and run it.

Since your machine can still reach the internet, I'm hearing strange voices that say things like "install utorrent", that there might be a place to go where pirates still exist.

I have a Sony Vaio Laptop wit windows vista ultimate, does anybody knows how to recovery this laptop?


Most Sony Vaio systems will have a VAIO recovery wizard. Create a Recovery Media Kit using this wizard and you’ll be able to create a set of CDs that will enable you to do a system recovery on your Sony VAIO machine.
If your PC does not have this feature, you can always call Sony at 1-800-488-SONY to have them send you the disks.

Once you have either created or ordered and received the CDs necessary to restore your Sony VAIO computer, you’ll need to place the first CD in the drive and reboot the machine. The recovery process will immediately begin when the system boots. If it does not begin, you may have to enter the BIOS of the computer to change the boot sequence to the CD ROM instead of the hard drive. To enter the BIOS, tap the F2 key numerous times when booting.

REMEMBER... when you use the recoery system, it will restore your computer to it's ORIGINAL configuration from the factory. All data and programs you have installed will be GONE!

Yes, that's what it looks like. Make sure you put this in the right section next time, though.
