When I put a DVD in my CD reader it will not show the DVD


Hello, CD readers don't read DVD's. However, DVD readers DO read CD's (They're backward-compatible) Regards, nicam49

I have a HT-DT-ST- RW/DVD GCC 4480B it will burn cd-r but it wont even read dvd-r I just want to burn dvd-r but it wont even read blank one


> CD-RW / DVD-ROM

Sorry, but this device is not a DVD-writer.

This device _should_ read (non-blank) DVD media.
If it does not, then the cheapest solution is to spend $40
to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

My cd dvd-rom can't read cd's or burn cd's


If it is working correctly, it should read both CD and DVD disks.

If you have a "combo" drive (DVD-reader and CD reader/writer), it should burn CD disks.

If it is not working correctly, spend $40 to buy a replacement CD/DVD reader/writer.

My lg dvd writer could not read all dvds (it reads some cds and dvds). What may i do?


This may be caused by bad media, or incompatible formats. There are a variety of media formats for CDs and DVDs. Your reader may not read them all. What model are you running, and what type of media (DVD-R, DVD+R, etc) are you using?

Laptop reading dvd only


The majority of the time when the drives stops reading either CD's or DVD's, it's a failed reader board in the drive. The drive has two reader boards in it, one for CD's, and one for DVD's, one can go out and the other will work fine because they are two separate boards or reading systems. It's common for the CD board to go out and leave the DVD intact, simply because the CD board has 10 times more use. Most likely you will have to replace the drive, however, there are a couple of other things that can cause it to do this, they are rare, but still occur occasionally. Start by uninstalling the drivers for the CD/DVD drive from the device manager, then reboot. The machine will find the drive automatically, and reinstall the drivers. If it's a glitch, this will cure it. You can also try a lens cleaning kit. You can get one at Walmart or Bestbuy for around $10. It's extremely rare that a dirty lens would cause this, but it won't hurt to rule it out. If these don't work, then unfortunately, your only option is to replace the drive.

HP Pavillion not reading audio CD


It is possible that this is a drive issue, I've seen drives that one of the optical reader device has gone out, but generally it'e the DVD reader and will only read CD's. It's very rare that the CD reader goes and the DVD reader works. Before you replace drive, if it's only music CD's (you didn't mention program CD's), then update your media player. If it still won't play, then unistall the media player and completely reload it. At this point you can replacse the drive.

hello melo21,this is nichu,
can you tell me the manufacturer name
of your DVD writer or reader. some times this problem persists if the discs u ae installing are not of good quality or else the lens of your DVD writer or reader might be a bit older resulting in poor reading capability of your DVD writer or reader .
alwas avoid inserting scratched discs which results a longlasting duration for your DVD writer or reader. take care
bye
