How old is that computer?

It could be the drive. Are the CDs burned or are they music CDs from the store.

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

My compaq presario won't play dvds. it says its


Have you tried downloading any free dvd players from the internet? if not then try this one from www.download.com.

If the problem persists, then you are most likely having a problem with your player and might need to be cleaned or replaced.

I have a dvd/cd SD-R6252 unit in my r3000 compaq presario. I've burned CDa but cannot burn a DVD. I think I know the answer but I want to be sure is this unit capable of burning DVDs?


Hi, well ur DVD\CDRW drive is a combo drive. It can play CDs\DVDs but burns only CDs as it's NOT a DVDrw @ the same time. It won't burn a DVD.

.... In future I propose u either to replace the drive by a DVDRW or u may buy an external slim dvdrw if u want to keep ur existing drive as well. 2nd solution is best BTW.

Need help with Compaq Presario v2000 drivers


Your DVD drive is missing the Burning Program not the driver. I found an update for your windvd software for windows 7 but you probably have to have the full program installed to run the update. Hope this helps.

Cds will play but not dvds


Make sure you have a dvd player installed. If you do and dvds still will not play then that means that your dvd drive is bad and would need to be replaced.
