My CD-RW/VD-ROM is not reading cd or dvd

Hi, my cd player worked fine up until one day. It will not play any cd or dvd. I think I uninstalled it so I followed the directions to remove the lower an upper filters but it still does not work. I am lost and am not sure what else to do. Do i need to buy a new laptop. I have a toshiba satellite A135-S4426.

The dust might have block the lenz face so you can get lenz cleaner to clean the lenz and mind you there is not wrong with your laptop it only the cd rom driver you will work on if you clean it has i have said and it does not work again the you can replace the cd rom drive with new one of the same type.

When I burn movies from my hp laptop the movie burns fine, but when i watch the movie on my dvd player it plays fine until 1/2 way and then freezes. What can I do to stop this from happening?


Use a high density CD-R or DVD-R disc not the RW (read-write) ones to sustain quality. Also, when you are using Nero, check the option "Verify Disc integrity" before clicking the "burn" command so that the disc will be verified on its data integrity after the burning process is completed.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas

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

My DVD/CD-ROM can not read dvds


DVD/CD-RW combo drives are capable of reading the DVD's but cannot burn so try playing a DVD with some content on it also Download VLCPLAYER

if you don't have a DVD player already on your system. As far as CDs are concerned it can both read and write to CDs

LG CD/DVD combo does not recognize virgin DVD´s


DVD combo do not burn DVD's they can only read DVD read CD and burn CD to burn on a dvd you need a dvd writer. A DVD combo is a combination of just a DVD ROM and a CD-RW.

with some models (even of LG) you only get one drive DVD/CD-RW but in dome version it shows as two different drives DVD and CD-RW. consider this as partioning of a drive if its to be analogued to HDD (though its not partioning its just diffrent PROMS)

Hope you understand that there is nothing wrong with your combo its just that you are expecting it to be a DVD-RAM which it is not.
