My CD/DVD drive won't read/play DVDs and it won't write DVDs either. It used to do this fine, but it doesn't anymore. It will still play and write CDs, but not DVDs. I have tried EVERYTHING to...


You probably will need to replace the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) in your laptop. Go to Google and search for "Dell Inspirion 6000 CD/DVD drive" to find a replacement.
To be sure it's the CD/DVD drive that's defective and not your operating system software, you could also try to boot from a boot-able DVD disk.

Windows vista can't detect dvds or cds


Hi,
If your Laptop is still covered by the Warranty, then the best bet would be to send it back.
However, if it's not under Warranty, then you could always try and "Flash" the drives firmware. This should set the Drive back to the time it left the Manufacturers Factory. To accomplish this, you'll need to know the exact make and model of the DVD Drive inside your Laptop.
If you can get this information, and post it back here, then I can point you in the right direction as to where you may be able to download the software to flash the drive.

Laptop CD/DVD drive won't detect CDs but will detect DVDs


sure..go to my computer..and see what disks are there?

if there are none, go to control panel, system device manager, and look at dvd drives and see that there is no marks on it(meaning that it's installed)

if not, remove that drive, click on actions/scan for hardware change, and go

you may need the install vista disk to make that happen, but that's unusual.

check for printer drivers here
