Dvd reading error


Try using a known-good (for instance, a movie you just watched on your TV). If it doesn't read that disc, make certain you have seated the disk in the drive properly (Laptop drives have a *CLICK!* when you have seated the disc properly). If that doesn't work- if the laptop is in warranty, get it fixed. If not, use an external drive to fulfill your media needs

Dell studio 1555 doesn't read DVD or CD , when I insert CD / DVD it looks like it is reading the media but when I click on Drive icon, it ejects the media.


First reinstall the DVD driver to see if the DVD drive works.
If not then -
Try removing the DVD drive and inserting it back to make sure it properly connected then boot up the laptop and go into the BIOS and see it the DVD drive is detected, if the DVD drive is not detected then the DVD drive is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Describe how you insert a dvd into a laptop


Hi Eunice, just want to clarify, for lenovo notebook if it doesn't have DVD drive you can use external DVD drive to access DVD CD. DVD external drive is just plug and play device once attached in your USB port, it will automatically detected and once detected you can use it already. Just install Burner application to burn some files if your DVD is capable of burning CD.

I cant play a disc or DVD


Hello,

Please try to reboot your laptop then go to CMOS Settings and detect the CD/DVD Rom and try to see if it is detected by your system. If it is detect ted then exit CMOS Settings and then load the Operating system you have and ope the DVD/CD Rom you have. But if it does not detect the DVD/CD Rom then i advice you to find a computer technician to help you fix the problem cause hardware problem is the main reason why it does not detect the disk drive you have, its either the connection bus is not properly plug or the Disk drive is damage or not functioning well.

Thanks

CD-RW/DVD ROM


On the Load Problem.. try rebooting your system. It sounds like your driver either dropped or didn't load correctly. Also, check the properties of the drive and make sure you have the DLA option checked.

On the software, windows media center, roxie, nero, any of those are good. Here are a few good free programs: http://www.avsmedia.com/DVDPlayer/index.aspx
