What is the Lifespan of CD Drives? I have an HP dv7 that seems like the cd rom is not communicating well with the machine. Could it be software related?


Burning CD-R or DVD-R shortens the life cycle of any CD-R or DVD-R drive, while reading is generally. If you have burnt 1 disc per day, it is not surprising your DVD-RW drive is worn out.

1 detail to take into consideration: if you use ReWritable media, change them from time to time. I thought my DVD-Recorder was dead as I got a lot of non responding issue with DVD+RW media (while my computer had no problem to read these media), and finally getting rid off the old media and taking newer DVD+RW media has given the DVD-Recorder 3 more years.

My hp pavilion zd8000 laptop with XP installed will not allow me to load a golf game from a CD Rom I purchased some 14 years ago. I used to have this installed a nd played regularly on a previous computer.


The game may be not supported with the current Operating System Perhaps!!! What was your old computer's Operating system? And since the CD-ROM is 14 years old does it has too many scratch?? These days computer CD/DVD drives will never read the disc if they are scratched...

Finally, when you try installing the game, do you encounter any error message? if yes please post it....always remember if your posting your problem in forum, make sure that you provide all information about the issue.

My computer wont read any cd's or dvds... I open the tray, everything works it has power to it and I can hear the cd spin inside as it trys to load then it stops and nothing happens on screen. If I put the...


It's a common problem if the cd\dvd rom is very used. Try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alchohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush".

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or add a testimonial.

DVD Code Problem No FVU


You need to install or update the Firmware. Go to www.panasonic.ca and search your model. You will then need to download the firmware for your player and burn it/mount it as an ISO file on to cd. Just follow the instructions and you'll be up and running in no time.

It took me about 25min, but it is working fine now.

"disk error" occurs when disk is inserted


the drive cannot read data from the disk, follow these instutions:
if you are using vista, right click on "computer" then select "manage" then select "device manager". look down the list until you find CD/DVD and click on the + icon next to it, then right click on the CD/DVD and select un-install (make sure that there is a disk in the drive, preferably a movie or music CD) then restart the computer, when the computer restarts vista will detect the drive and install the drivers again, look in computer to see if the disk has been recognised

let us know how you get on

Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-840S Problem


CD drives work by reflecting a laser to a sensor, where the existance or absence of a reflected signal corresponds to a 1 or a 0 in the binary code.

Prefessional "pressed" CD have a much greater level of "contrast" between 1 and 0, while CD-Rs have a lower contrast and CD-RWs lower still. This is why many older CD players that were not designed to read CD-Rs will either not read writable disks, or will read only CD-Rs and not CD-RWs.

Since you are able to read "high contrast" CDs but not lower contrast CD-Rs, it sounds as though your drive is getting a poorer signal than it did when it was new. This could be:

The laser is old and fading out.
The system is mis-aligned.
The lens is dirty and the signal is not all passing through to be detected.

You can't do much about the first two, other than buying a new drive (you could get a replacement internal one, or an external USB CD drive). However, before you do that, try very carefully cleaning the lens. A laptop CD drive usually has a try with the lens mounting in it which spits out with the CD, so you could either clean it manually with a little rubbing alcohol (isoproyl alcohol), or meths on a cotton-wool bud, or preferably get a lens-cleaning CD and run that in the drive.

Hope it works!
