Try taking the case off and cleaning everything out with compressed air (Make sure to unplug the system from power source). check your discs to make sure they are not scratched . You may have to clean the optical reader lens inside the cd/dvd rom which can be rather tricky if you do not know how to do it manually. I suggest buying a cleaning disc at your local computer store and that should help. Let me know if it does not, we will explore further options.

Cant play cd audio but will play dvd


ALL CD's or just one CD? Depends on the file format and the Media Player. Have you tried another Media Player? Does the CD work in another Computer? Did you make the CD? What is the Media on the CD?

If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

My ROM drive is not working. it cant read


Often DVD will not read, but trying cd to play music will work. which will drive circuits very hot to drive offmoisture condensation. Upon cool down DVD will read. If it does not play the whole DVD, use cd again to get moisture off, until DVD can play all the way and second DVD will play all the way.

Clean the cd and the CD players lens.

Try another software cd and see if it works.

If more than one disc doesnt work then its time to replace the drive.

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.

Portable dvd doesnt play movies


Try cleaning the lasers lens with an anti static cleaning wipe. I used " nice'n clean" that I had purchased from Walmart to clean my laptop screen. My dvd player started back playing after gently wiping the laser lens.
