HI sir, I have sony notebook (model pcg-v505s (pb)) and MATSHIT UJDA745 DVD/CDRW DRIVE .But the drive will read cd's and does not drive dvd's problem.This problem is how to explain.


Hello,
Please try changing the DVD region. It may not be set that's why it is not reading DVD discs.
Here's the link
If it still won't read dvd discs, then the problem is with the drive itself. The DVD reader(lense) is already broken.

Ihv inserted the DVD in the slot..the disk is nt being read


Hi,
You didn't mention if the dvd was working before or it's new.

Now, you have 2 options to try:
1) Try to open the same DVD on other DVD-Reader. If it was read, then the dvd is unreadable on your laptop, because it's bad, or the DVD-Reader have problems, OR

2) Try other DVD on your laptop, if it was read, then your DVD-Reader can't read all types of DVDs, if not, then the dvd is bad
Tell Us your results, please
Good Luck

I have a NEC Lavie L LL550/3 that doesn't read


The CD and DVD reading portions of the drive use different sensors, so it's possible it would stop reading DVDs but still continue to read basic (audio) CDs.

The question is, will the same, working audio CD work while booted up fully?

If it does not, it may be a matter of a driver problem; unfortunately drivers cannot be found online for this model. Check this thread and make a post or comment to try to find someone who may have the drivers you need.
