    Please state when this happened, and if you have DVD software.

    In the meantime, try a Video Head Cleaning CD (it's probably going to run you $5 to ten dollars).  What it is is a CD with brushes on the bottom that take the dust off of the laser lens.

    I found one in a grocery store.  Shouldn't be too hard to find.

    Also called: Laser Lens Cleaner

Cannot get my dvd cd rom to play dvds or cds tried everything apart from taking the tower off model #a1310n Prod# el448aa-aba


If you cannot hear the disk spinning when you put the cd or DVD in you may have a broken CD/DVD drive, easily and cheaply replaceable for under $20 at any store (Recommended: Best Buy). Try putting your Windows Disc into the drive to see if it is only a problem with playing Media, or if it is a problem with the drive itself and go from there. Good luck!

My cd drive on my compaq desktop plays cd's fine but will not play dvd's.what can i do it's a windows xp home


You can only play CDs on a CD drive. In order to play DVDs you need a DVD drive. A DVD drive can play both CDs & DVDs.

Hope this info helped you. Good Luck! :-)

Dell XPS 410 DVD rom will read cds but not dvds


Try to uninstall and then reinstall the driver for the DVD rom. Also, make sure you have a DVD application software that you can use to play those DVDs; like Realplayer.

My ibook reads audio cds but not dvds what should i do


In order for a cd-rom drive to be able to read DVD's it had to be made to do that. Some older model CD_ROM's are not technologically able to read DVD's, You usually can tell if it can because it should have either a sticker or a raised portion on the front of the drive that says DVD Rom. If you have that then the next step is to install DVD playing software. Check both of those and then post back.
