Try cleaning the Laser Pickup Lens with rubbing alcohol and a Q-Tip and allow several minutes to dry. If there is no change replace the CD ROM driver.

I have a HT-DT-ST- RW/DVD GCC 4480B it will burn cd-r but it wont even read dvd-r I just want to burn dvd-r but it wont even read blank one


> CD-RW / DVD-ROM

Sorry, but this device is not a DVD-writer.

This device _should_ read (non-blank) DVD media.
If it does not, then the cheapest solution is to spend $40
to buy a new CD/DVD reader/writer.

I'm trying to install a PC-DVD Game to my LG CD-ROM CRD-8521B, It plays CD's but wont play DVD's of any sort. Really need help...


The CD rom is limited to CD's. In order to read a DVD, you will need to install a DVD rom. My suggestion is to get an external DVD Burner - i just bought a Samsung slim external DVD burner that reads / writes CD's and DVD's.
You will have no luck ever reading a dvd in a cd rom.

My pc wont read any cd


Most likely your CD-Rom either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Try running a regular CD player cleaning disc in the ROM. If this doesn't get it working correctly, then you will have to replace the CD-ROM or buy an external ROM that hooks up with a USB cable.

My cd/dvd (sh-s182d )rom read cd only but it wont response


CD/DVD ROM drives like yours employs two lasers to work properly, one for CD read function and the other for DVD read function.

It seems that your laser for DVD reading is either dirty or damaged.

Try an optical drive cleaner, if that does not fix it, you are going to have to replace the drive. If you have warranty then replace it or have it fixed. However, if your warranty has expired then the best thing to do is to buy a new one. They are not expensive these days so the price difference between fixing it and buying new should not be huge.

A lens cleaner disk should be available from most computer shops.

I assume you have proper software for DVD video playback like PowerDVD, VLC media player etc.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
