The dvd player does not work. It will read music cd"s and photo cd"s but will not play dvd"s. The dvd"s just spin in the drive constantly. I have uninstalled and reinstalled new drivers with no resolution.

The drive continues to spin every time you reboot the computer, that is normal.If the drive is not able to read any CD/DVD, it means, either the lens that reads the data has lost its life as the player is aged or the CD/DVD is not properly burnt. If you encounter the same problem will all DVDs then definitely the DVD player lens is dead that it could not read CD/DVD anymore. Its time to replace the player if the spare is available or you can buy an External DVD player from staples or officemax or from any reputed stores. My suggestion would be to go for external player, as we dont rely on players always. Also external players are relatively cheap compared to that of internal spare of laptop.
Is the movie a store purchased movie or is it a movie that someone copied and gave to you? Computers sometimes have problems reading or playing a dvd or cd that someone else made and gave to you. Try a store purchased music cd or store purchased movie dvd and see if the player plays it.
I understood that the laptop you are using the hp pavilion dv6000z has already a pretty good burner..
8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW
4x DVD-/+R DL
so ...all you have to do is to learn how to use it ...and for this I recomand Nero softwaer ...even elder versions of this software works great ..and you can make a data dvd with files like dvdrip avi ...that most dvd and all copmuter will playback it..also ...you can burn dvd or Vcd that will be seen in all ...in the matter of the music ...all pm3 players can read data cd ....meaning just mp3 burned into a disk ...and for cd players that reads only old track format you can make them in windows media player ...so read about and use your burner...
I am stumpted. I am not sure. normally if a drive cannot read a disk and all of the software and drivers are correct then I would say that the drive head is out of alignment . Pasify me if you will and restore you computer to the time before you stared havign the problem just to insure that it is not software.If it reads DVD's it shoud also read cd's.?
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.
