First try to spray the inside of the cd drive with compressed air. if that doesn't work, your cd drive is shot, you could either try opening it up (not recomended) or you could go to a computer store and have them install a new cd drive (recommended) such as best buy.

    yes, i believe it should be covered, or they'll just replace the laptop.

Acer aspire 5733z does not detect dvd drive


This sounds like your dvd drive stopped working. try with different cds or dvds. If not there is a complicated way but if you are not familiar with computers don't do that. A service technician can easily solve it for you.

Toshiba satellite l655d-s5093 d: drive issue


Buy a drive cleaning CD/DVD, those from dollar store may also work, clean the drive a few times and it should read CD/DVD.
Alternatively look at the Toshiba support drivers fro firmware update to your specific drive. Make sure you get all the recommended and critical Toshiba updates.

My laptop has a strange problem. CDs and DVDs do work fine but when I put in 1 particular DVD the drive does not recognise it. The DVD is working on other computers though. I have an ACER ASPIRE 6530 ,...


Hello,

This is not uncommon at all.

There are slight variations in drives and the tracks of data on the disks are extremely small. A disk may be off a tiny amount and may not work in some drives but will work in others. This seems to be particularly true of user recorded disks.

One thing that sometimes works is to make a copy of the disk. Even making a copy with a drive that won't read it normally may sometimes work. The disk copying software will usually warn you and refuse to try if it really can't read it. Try copying it in another machine, that should solve the problem.

When i put in a disc in my CD Driver nothing happens


May be dirt on the laser lens and the drive can't detect the pressance of a disk. It is possible to clean it with a cotton bud by gently wiping it accross the lens but it means removing the drive and taking the top of to access the lens.

Open tray error


You need to either replace the drive with a working drive or replace the laser within your current drive. If you change drives you will first need to obtain your dvd-key and then flash it into your new drives firmware.

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

Sony DVD-RW DW-D56A drive playing up


I am not posting a solution, but may be the same problem.
I have dell inspiron 510m with DVD - RW sony A 56
It had burnt one DVD till now, but it can NOT burn any more DVDs.
I have tried burning using windows XP-SP2, Nero 6, Nero 8, burn my files 3.01 BUT no use. The only thing I got is different error messages.
I changed many types of DVD-Rom, from sony, benq..trying to rule out the storge media itself as source of error, but again no use.
Astonishingly, it works a CD-ROM Burner very well.
Any suggestions?
