This item plays cd & burns cd, but does not play DVD.


Either this device is not DVD burner or you do not have installed on your computer the software to play DVDs. Possible also that device is not installed correctly or the drivers are not the correct ones.

Why does my lenovo insist on my having a cd rom when i have a dvd writer installed? how do I fix it so that computer recoognizes it?


I have the same situation. My computer has a
DVD-RW/CD-RW installed yet when it is empty, the computer simply recognizes it as a CD drive. However, it will automatically recognize any DVD I place in the drive. Even a blank DVD-R. So it's not really a problem for me.

Also, if you type in DEVICE MANAGER in your windows search area, it will show you all your computer's hardware and peripherals. I have Windows Vista 64 bit and in device manager it does recognize it as an ATAPI DVD under "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES".

I haven't seen a DVD burner yet that won't play or write cd's; maybe this is standard.

I wouldn't worry about it as long as it performs the functions (play/burn DVD's?)

Hope this helps.8a17955.jpgb9e40e6.jpg

I have a samsung external dvd writer model se-s204 and i've been unable to make dvd's yhat play on all devices-ie: playstaion, dvd players, my own laptop. any help in this matter would be greatly...


To make a dvd cd that will play in most players beit dvd or cd the best thing to use is nero. It won't be the cd burner itself it will be the program you are useing to burn it with. Try nero but just remember that not all dvd, cd players will play burnt discs.

Lost DVD Driver in Windows XP Pro!


DVD Driers. DVD's do not have drivers. A DVD Drive could need a firmware update. What kind of drive is it. What kind of computer. Have you checked the jumpers or cable? Try changing the cable. What software are you using to burn your DVD / CD's? What OS is this? There are several things that can cause this. Is your computer recognizing it? Right click my computer and go to properties and check your hardware area for ? marks.
