Question about Dell Studio 1737 Laptop

1 Answer

My Dell Studio 1737 does not recognize any CD or DVD that I insert into the DVD-RW. It recognizes that the drive exists, but not any contents. I tried updating the driver and the firmware, no change. I then bought an external DVD-RW, was able to rip a few music CD's to my computer, then the same thing happens with the external drive. When I put a disk in it, it will hang up Windows Explorer and then the drive is not recognized until I reboot. The same problem as with the internal drive. I'm thinking this is not a coincidence. Any thoughts? (Windows Vista Home Premium.)

Dell Studio 1737 won't read cd/dvd's.


You should have a CD that came with the computerthat has "Diagnostics and Utilities" listed under contents. Boot formthis CD and run the extended diagnostics.
If you don't have the CD you can go to www.support.dell.com and select "Drivers and Downloads". Enter the"service tag" (serial number) of the computer. You can then download"Diagnostics" .
If you can't boot from the CD then you CD/DVD drive needs to be replaced. If the computer boots from the CD you have a software issue.

My Dell 1737 DVD/CD drive won't recognize DVDs or burn DVDs but will play select CDs fine. Solutions? Thanks, Jeff


Hi, pretty much the codec is not installed on the computer and I think that's the reason why the system can't read DVD. Try to download the right codec for your PC.

You could try VLC player. Here's the link:

Or you can also try installing a codec. Here's the link:

I have a Dell. My Roxio prog doesn't recognize a discs


That means there is something wrong with your driver. If it cannot read any disc you inserted then the problem exist in your drive. You don't need to reinstall any driver as long as you can see your drive being recognized by your computer and you can see your drive in the My Computer with a letter indicated on it. Your drive is in need for a replacement. This problem indicates a hardware failure specifically the lens of the device.

Hope this helps..

Dell cd-rw drive doesn't recognize when a disk is in it


You need to make sure your drive can read CD-RW. That is a different format than "+" and is not recognized in a lot of drives. Also, what software are you using to burn the document?
