Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M140 Notebook
I have a laptop computer with a combined DVD-R/RW and CD-R/RW. Somehow, I can play the DVD's but not the CD's.
This is a common problem with the combo drives. There are two sepperate reader boards for CD and DVD. When one fails the other will still read. The drive will need to be replaced.

It is the re-recordable version of the DVD+R
and everything that was said about the DVD+R is valid for the DVD+RW. Only the
newest DVD players play movies recorded in disks using this format. There are
recorders on the market that can record both DVD-RW disks and DVD+RW ones. These
recorders are called DVD?±RW. Similarly to the DVD-RW, the disk needs to be
finished to be played in commercial DVD players, and to record new data in the
disk after having finished it requires reformatting it, which makes all the data
in it to be erased. DVD+RW recorders are usually capable of reading DVD-RW disks
(but not of recording them) and vice-versa.
There you are.
