DVD dead?? After a year or so working fine, my DVD RW became invisible to my computer. It spins up when a disc is inserted but never shows up in MyComputer list therefore never reads any data.

    My registry is corrupt and the dvd is not recognized. Nothing seems to help. I cannot do a system restore at all. dell says the only thing to do is a PC restore but that is scary?

    High and low filters have been taken out too.

    At witts end.

My cd drive shows empty even with disc inserted


If the disks you insert DO work on some other computer,
then it's time to spend $40 and buy a new CD/DVD-writer,
to replace the "dead" unit.

The "working properly" part is ONLY an indication that the hardware has been detected, and the correct software device-drivers have been loaded; it makes no guarantee that the unit will work.
Compare it to having a car -- it looks like a car, but if won't start, it still is a car, although it cannot be used as a car.

Hp dvd/rw does not read discs


If the CD or DVD disks you inserted work in some other reader, then your reader is the problem -- even though it is properly connected to your computer, and Windows has the correct device-drivers, it is the "hardware" that is the problem.

When you insert a disk, rotate it to some position, i.e., top-lettering goes in first, and close the drawer. Do you hear the drive start to spin the disk? Open the drawer. Is the disk in the same (non-rotated) position? If so, then the motor that spins the disk is the problem. If the disk does spin, but nothing happens, then it is the "laser" part of the mechanics that is not working.

Replace it.

Will Not reconise Cd or DVD in the Drive


Yes, this drive is basically dead. You can find pretty cheap prices for new drives at www.pricewatch.com
If the drive door closes on a cd or dvd that you want and it will not open back up, use a straightened paperclip and push it into the little hole near the door on the drive, the door will pop open then.

Not recognising dvd player/not playing dvds


Sounds like the laser pick-up is not reading the disc, or the spindle motor is not spinning so the dvd can be read.

Not Reading Disc


Probably a broken / misaligned laser. Could also be a bad internal motor, can you hear it spinning when you insert a disc? Theres not a ton you can do really, if you're really skilled and have a lot of time you can realign the laser with a digital multimeter and a screw driver, but you have to be very technically inclined. You're better off purchasing a new one. Newegg.com sells dvd burner for less than 30 dollars new. I hope this has explained your question in detail. If I've helped you please don't forget to rate me.

Dell Cd/Dvd burner not working properly


I have a Dell XPS 400 that's about 3 years old. I have a DVD reader and a DVD-RW device. The former works - the latter takes forever to read discs (particularly DVD data discs.)

I'm starting to think some of the generic DVD-RW devices Dell uses in its computers are prone to early failure. The DVD-RW in my XPS-400 was called "HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GSA-H21N".

I'm going to try cleaning it, and then just swap it out for a better device.
