Purchase a DVD lense cleaner kit, should resolve this for you. If it does not, unistall the drivers for the drive, go to its manufacturers website and download the drivers for the operating system you are using.

HELP MY COMPUTER WONT READ ANY CD'S EXCEPT A DVD,, WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?? ANY HELP


hi

you have either one of these ..

5187-5619 = DVD-ROM/CD-RW combination drive - 48X CD-R write, 32X CD-RW rewrite, 48X CD-ROM read, 16X DVD-ROM read

EL436-69001 = 48X DVD-ROM CD-R/RW optical drive - 48X read, 32X read, 48X read, 16X max write speed

make sure you buy CDs or DVDs which are speed compatible to your optical drive or COMBO drive speeds

if you are busying compatible speed CD media, then take some compressed air (can) and clean the drive bay and inside the optical drive area, to dedust it .


go to this site and review all the related sites .. read carefully and try to figure out what the possibility (issue) is .

if ALL this fails, you may have to replace the DRIVE itself

i hope this helps

The DVD Drive on my philips freevents 12NB5800 isn't working. The problem is that the draw opens but the laptop isn't recognising the disc. I had tried going onto my computer and double clicking on the dvd...


Either your CD/DVD drive is dirty & needs to be cleaned, or the drive has gone bad & needs to be replaced.
First, try to take the drive off the laptop. Open the drive & blow compressed air into it (from a can of compressed air) to clean it. You could also clean the lens (the small round glassy object inside the drive) using lens cleaning tissues & lens cleaning fluid.
If this did not fix the problem, you will need to replace the CD/DVD drive with a working one, or use an external CD/DVD drive

The liteon dvdrw will not burn a DVD


Perhaps you should reinstall the Sonic stuff, in case it was affected since the virus cleanup.  If the OS had some of its components quarantined from virus contamination, you are probably stuck reinstalling the OS...though of course you can search the web (and not least Microsoft.com if that's the sort of OS you use) for healing 'media detection' issues (w.r.t. your particular OS.)

My USB Sony- dvd writer (enclosed in casing) has stopped reading


Try using a can of compressed air with the tube on the end. Open the disk tray and spray the compressed air liberally inside the drive area, sweeping the tube from side to side. If this does not fix the problem and you feel comfortable with removing the drive and removing the top cover, you can try cleaning the optic lense inside (very gently) with a cotton swab and some rubbing alcohol.

Try cleaning the DVD drive with compressed air, if it still does not work try cleaning the drive with a DVD disk cleaner. if it still does not work and the software for the DVD drive has been confirmed as operational then the drive is dead and needs replacement.
