Does the tray eject? If it does, eject it and remount (make sure that the cables are connected properly) then try another disc. If it does not eject, check if Bios detects it.

You can also uninstall and reinstall the drivers.

Please do get back when none of this works.

    Follow the Step 1 and Step 2 of this link. Or should you want to remove the drive and mount it back, you can follow the whole steps.

The lens from the laser head is covered in dust - clean it. For that use a special cleaning disk.
If that doesn't fix the problem completely then the dust has been baked on the plastic of the lens. This can't be repaired, you will need a new cd/dvd unit.

2008 cadillac 6 disk dolby dvd/cd sound system will not play or eject disk


Alien is right, pull the Radio Fuse, then put it back in and eject the CD/DVD. Happens to me sometimes with burned DVDs, seems like the player is picky on the CD/DVD media. Rebooting the device (by pulling the fuse) is the only way to eject it.

I purchased a plextor px-870a dvd/cd writer to replace the cd writer in our computor it is a dell with a dvd player in the top slot and a cd writer in the next slot down but the cd writer stoped working so...


On the back of a CD-writer or a DVD-writer is a small grid (2 rows) of gold pins.

Each vertical set of pins is labelled: MA(ster), SL(ave), and C(able)S(elect).
Be sure that one drive has a small jumper between the MA pins,
and the other drive has a small jumper between the SL pins.

Was there any software on CD-ROM that came with the DVD-writer,
e.g., software to play DVDs, and software to write CDs and DVDs?
To "play" a DVD, you'll need that software.
To "play" a music CD, Windows Media Player will suffice.

I have a Pioneer AVIC-D2 DVD Nav/6.5" Screen/AM/FM/CD Player Car Video Player i can play music on it ,wen i insert a dvd the screen goes black i can hear the dvd playing on my speakers but no picture comes...


there is a safety brake wire that needs to be hooked up. If it was installed professionally, have them explain it to you.There is not supposed to be any video players in view of the driver while in motion. Stop your car and put on the parking brake. If you installed it yourself, you probably didnt hook up the wire. Look inthe install manual for DVD safety wire.

Screen is blank


Check to see if the little button that the screen closes down on (which turns off the screen and only the screen) is stuck, or jammed under the little hole that it comes up.  This button is about the size of a pin on most DVD Players, and is located very close to the screen on either side.
