Check the status of the device in Device Manager to make sure that the device driver is working correctly. (If you need help doing that please ask.)

If no joy then:
Change the transfer mode for your CD drive in IDE Channel Properties loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); 1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Manage. 2. Under Computer Management (Local), click Device Manager. 3. On the right side, expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers. 4. Right-click the channel where your CD drive is connected, and then click Properties. Typically, this channel is Secondary IDE Channel. 5. On the Advanced Settings tab, in the Transfer Mode box for the device that represents your CD drive, click PIO Only. Typically, this device is Device 0. Then, click OK. If the issue is not resolved after you change the transfer mode for the secondary IDE channel device 0, your CD drive may not be located there. Use the same procedure to change the transfer mode back to DMA if available. Then, repeat these steps to change the transfer mode for IDE devices in the following order until the issue is resolved: • Primary IDE channel, device 1 • Secondary IDE channel, device 1Note Primary IDE channel, device 0 is connected to your boot disk. This is the hard disk that typically contains your operating system.

All of a sudden my disk and dvd movies will no longer pop up when i put then in the disk holder and push them in nothing happens i can hear the disk spinning for a few seconds and then it stops but nothing...


Insert a disk. Wait for the disk-spinning to stop.
Open "My Computer".
Double-click the icon for the CD/DVD drive, to see if Windows can read anything from the disk.

Disk read error


Hey,

If you receive this error in start up and your computer doesn't load windows. It was unable to read the disk.

Please use your recovery discs (or windows installation cd/dbd) to restore the computer. If the recovery discs don't solve the problem and you still receive the same error, the hard drive is possibly damaged. I would suggest to take the laptop to a professional for testing and fixing.


Thanks and good luck.

Ibm t23 laptop dvd rom not reading some dvds


Sounds like you need a DVD decoding software, ie... winvid, interdvd, and powerdvd. Windows media player will play some DVD's, but many DVD's, especially newer ones, need an additional decoder in order to work. You will be able to find the software at filehippo.com, download.com, or IBM's support site. Keep in mind that burning software, ie... nero, roxio, and dvd shrink, have decoders in order to burn the DVD, so they will work as a decoder in conjunction with your media player.
