It's not reading cd, or DVD


Check for scratches on the disk surface - these can inhibit the player from reading a disk correctly.

Some players will read olny certain type(s) of disks. This is an issue mostly for disks created on a computer, not those that are prerecorded and available for purchase or rental that contain movies and music.

As stated above, dIsks created on a home computer may not always be readable on a home player. Re-writeable and recordable types that are not listed as being compatible will not work. Check your manual to see which types are acceptable and not. DVD types are: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM CD Types are CD-R, CD+R and CR-RW. Older home CD and DVD players generally work with "-R" types and the newer players with both "-R" & "+R" types. "-RW" and "-RAM" types are the least likely to be readable in home players.

Additionally, most players require that disks created on a home computer be "finalized". This is an extra step that isn't required by most CD / DVD drives in computers. Just because it works in your computer doesn't mean it will work in your home player. If you're using compatible media and still not able to read disks, check your CD / DVD recording software options to enable finalization.

Good luck!

I HAVE DEMO VERSION FOR ONE MONTHSOF VISTA HOME BASIC NOW MY LAPTOP NOT STARTING IT REQUIRED PRODUCT KEY


The demo version was set to expire quite some time ago... Either format the system installing a new operating system or buy a registration key for Windows Vista. If you've got it, I would install Windows XP Professional (SP3 is preferred). If you do not currently have an operating installer disk, you can download some free ones such as these:

Linux Mint
Ubuntu
Fedora

As mentioned, they are completely free and do not require you to register them. To install them you will need to have a CD (or CD/DVD) burner. Afterward download the .iso image to the computer with the CD/DVD burner. Then use a program such as ImgBurn to burn the image to the disk. Once done, stick the disk into the CD/DVD drive of the computer with the Vista installation. Then start the computer and use the boot option to boot from the CD/DVD disk (Generally a message during startup will read similar to "Press F12 for boot options." Press the key associated with the message continually (in this case, F12) to bring up the boot selection screen). Sometimes you will be asked to press any key to continue booting from the CD. As it said, press any key and you will boot from the CD.

Hopefully you will be able to resolve your problem. Just remember, installing a new operating system will erase ALL data on the hard-drive. So if you have precious files on the hard-drive, I would not recommend installing a new operating system.

Let us know how things turn out, or if you require any further assistance.

Toshiba Satellite A200-1M4 When I start my laptop i can hear a long peep sound and my DVD ROM auto opening. My DVD ROM PC detect but It can not read the CD always showing inset the CD. Please help me in...


dvd burners or rom drive have 2 lens inside, one for DVD read, the other for cd read. I see it often where one fails out in the drive but the other works. With one working fine and the other not, I would replace the drive. If still under warranty send it to manufacturer. If not do a search on Ebay for a replacement drive, or get a local laptop repair shop to do it for you.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

It dosn't read the dvd


DVD/CD drive is bad.
As a general rule, the CD/DVD drive cleaning disks do nothing but attempt to scratch the lens by brushing off dust.

You're creating Disk images on your Hard Disc Drive.

See where your CD Burning Software stores the images of the Disk and use the appropriate option to burn them onto a blank CD.

Teac DW-224E-c - cannot burn DVD's


The answer is what you profess. The drive can burn CD's, read CD's and also read DVD's. Everytime I try and burn a DVD I have an unrecognized drive and the properties always show no disk: The drive burns CD's ie;music, but cannot burn DVD it can only read DVD like you say!
