> it does not appear in "My Computer"

Does it appear in "Device Manager" with a "yellow-triangle" or "red-X" superimposed on its icon?

Since the tray opens/closes, it is getting electrical power.

Do you hear the drive spinning a disk, when you close the tray?

My dell laptop inspiron 1525 wont play dvd's, but it will play cd's.. i have windows vista


Two things to check: First, look on the tray edge - does it say DVD and CD, or just CD? If it does not say DVD,it will not play them. The second thing is you may not have software to play a DVD. Usually Windows will use media player, assuming you have a dvd player. You can also open "my computer" and the drive will show up as a DVD or just CD.

I have a problem with the dvd disk drive on a dell inspiron 1525


Always be sure to close any open programs you do not need to run at that particular time. Also, close your internet connection. The reason for this is to allow the maximum amount of memory to be used by your media software.. Try this. It should work, ok? GOOD LUCK!! Lucky4lynn2

Dell 1525 can read CD but does not read DVD


Hi, If your Dell 1525 has got a CDROM drive or CD Burner/Writer then you can only Read and Write the CD's

But if you got a DVD optical Drive then you can Read CD and DVD too...

If you need more clarifications on the same, pls send me the Service Tag of your computer. ( you can find it underneath the laptop)
