SOURCE: Combo drive CD not reading, but DVD ok

it may have dual laser and one that reads cd's is faulty, but try uninstalling the dvd drive first then re installing it to see if it cures it, if not the drive will need replacing. Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers

SOURCE: Had some problem with connecting the DVD drive to the PC

Depend on what you have in your system already. If your are replacing and existing drive simply remove it, and replace on the same IDE cable making sure the jumper is set to slave. Assuming you have one drive to the 0-IDE connector and the other connector is is to existing CD and this new drive is to be a second one. You will need another IDE ribbon cable. Set the drive to Master- connect the cale. position and fix the drive and plug the other end on the cable to the second IDE connector [Drive 01] See you mother board manual - connected a spere power connector.

SOURCE: cant play DVD on CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive

Assuming you have tried different makes of cd or dvd disks, it's a classic drive failure problem where the laser can no longer burn or read dvd's, but may still be able to read cd's only. You will have to replace the drive, they are quite inexpensive, and very easy to fit.

Do any other DVD discs work with the laptop? Lets start from there.

do you get a error message or something on the screen when you try to insert the disc or run the setup?

I m using samsung octo edge dvd writer in nero i m unable to find write dvd option How can i write/burn dvd plz help!


To use "Burn DVD video files" in Nero, you have to switch on Advanced mode instead of standard.

In my version, this is what the bottom right corner of Nero StartSmart Essentials looks like in the two modes.

I am having trouble burning to a DVD-RW,it does not recognise the disc I have in the drive,it keeps asking for a DVD-R-RW, what is the solution, thanks , Graeme


Graeme,
The LG GCC4522B CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo Drive is NOT a DVD BURNER.
It is a "combo" drive, which means that it can only READ DVD+/- discs and READ/WRITE CD's.
There is no firmware upgrade or any other modification that can convert your combo drive to a DVD burner.

Samsung dvd rw with octo edge dvd rom says burning failed for dual layer disc


I will presume that you do not have a combo DVD.
If you have a "combo" drive, it doesn't burn any DVDs.

First, has the burner ever burned dual-layer DVD's successfully?
Radio Shack has a laser cleaner ($13). Read & follow the directions. It is an audio CD with a row of brushes. No chemicals involved.

Recommendation:
Use Verbatim DVD's, they are the best. Samsung is also a top brand.

POWER CALIBRATION ERROR


Power Calibration error indicates that the drive hasn't been kept clean and is unable to guarantee a good write to disc...
I recommend a wet and dry CD/DVD Cleaner disk with Alcohol on the wet side (Like Tape Head cleaner liquid) and let it dry for a minute then run the disc again... if it still happens the drive is on its way out.
