DELL laptop does not read blank DVDs


the combo drive you listed above is a cd-rw/ DVD-ROM....meaning that it will play and burn cd, cd-r, and cd-rw disks. the dvd rom will only be able to play dvd-rom and dvd-r disks providing they are in the proper format. check that the disk in question is not a dvd-rw or (+2) disk. the drive will not recognize that a disk is in the drive if the disk isnt compatable. try a dvd movie, if that works then a dvd-r, if that works then try a dvd-rw +1. if the last option doesnt work then you will have to stick with the dvd-rom and dvd-r, or purchase a dvd-rw drive to install.

GOOD LUCK AND DONT FORGET TO RATE MY POST!! :D

How long has it been giving this problem, if its less than a cpl days you can try restoring to a previous date since some viruses ca cause that problem. If that doesnt work or your system isnt infected then i guess your drive is dead and you will need to get a new one... you could also try your drive on another computer, to ensure its dead.. Let me know what happens..

Not working


Is the drive connected propperly ?
look at the jumper settings if its IDE

if it is connected propperly and still doesnt show up
( verify its showing up in My COMPUTER)
try it on anoter PC to see if it works.

Just cause its new doesnt mean it works

If it works and you did connect it propperly the let me know

IS IT READING ANYTHING ?
Is IT SHOWING UP IN YOUR DEVICE MANGER?

Click START, (right Click) my computer, select properties then device manager, it shoud show up in DVD/CD-ROM drives
if it doesnt then right click on anything and scan for hardware changes. If it doesnt show up then it isnt connected propperly.
