  • vmduarte May 28, 2008

    My DVD drive reads and writes CD but doesn't read or write DVD. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite A135.

    On a four year old dell laptop, can read/write cd, but can't read a dvd. If I clean the lens with IPA, it reads for about a sec after, then says read error. Same dvd reads on an external dvd rom on same machine. At, work, also have a four year old dell power edge, it doesn't read a DVD either, perhaps laser's in the dvd drive get weaker.

There may be a conflict of compatibility between the hard drive and the dvd reader/recorder. Change your hard disk, lol!

My imac dvd drive reads DVDs but ejects CDs and installation disc


The optical drive has separate hardware for reading CD-disks and for reading DVD-disks.
So, "half" of the drive has failed. Replace the drive, since that will be less-expensive than an attempt at a repair.

Your computer is missing a DVD decoder software. Simply download and install VLC media player and K-Lite codec. Both are free download. You will find the download link by simply doing a google search.

Dvd rom drive does not work


Hi,
Try to open control panel then click add hardware. If you have entered the dialogue box, answer whatever is asked according to what you're searching. Then click whatever hardware your PC would like to detect then click finshed. After the detection, close the wizard box then try to open your DVD ROM and try it.

Hope this answers your question.

My Computer does not read DVD ROM Drive. Any Ideas on how to solve it?


Remove and resintall the power and data cable which conncects the DVD ROM. Try different CDs. If it still doesnt work, the lens must have be at fault.

Dvd problems


Hi,
you have a very sought after dvd player there.
people are paying a lot of money for these.
They Only support DVD- Disks. DVD-R/RW DVD-ROM. DVD- Video. If you are trying to Read Any DVD+ Formats, they,re not compatable with this Drive.
Hope this answers your problem.

Mike @ compurepair.

p.s recommend A Pioneer 111-112 Drive, reads most formats.

Having a trouble with my DVD-ROM - IBM ThinkPad T42


Internal the pickup assy. (the laser) there are three components that read the discs, one for DVD one for CD and one for the DVD-ROM its likely that the DVD-ROM laser has gone out. Take the drive out and get the part number and look it up online on ebay or the like :-)
