Put a DVD disk into the drive.
Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.
If a window opens, then your hardware can read the DVD media.
If not, then you need to replace the CD/DVD drive.
Then, you need software, such as the _free_ 'VLC' software,
downloadable from the Internet, to play DVD-videos on your computer.
try a reinstallation of your burning software if this fails to solve it , its most likely the burning laser diode has blown ( theres a burning ( writing diode ) and reading diode ) , theres no repair if thats the case
Try to clean you combo drive using disk cleaner. Also if you don't have disk cleaner then you can but it in the video and computer shop. Then try to insert another new cd to test if it really works after you clean the combo drive.
I suppose that you have windows XP.
Pls follow these steps
Clean the disc - Clean the disc with a disc cleaning kit or by gently wiping the silver side of the disc from the center outward with a dry, soft, lint-free, cotton cloth. Check the disc for damage - Remove the disc from the drive, and then examine the disc for scratches or cracks.Try a different disc drive - If the computer has more than one disc drive, insert the disc in a different CD or DVD drive to see whether it can read the disc. If your computer does not have more than one disc drive, you can insert the disc in a different computer.Make sure that the disc is compatible with the drive -Check the following list to make sure that the disc that you are trying to use is compatible with your CD or DVD drive.
A DVD disc is incompatible with a standard CD drive.
A CD-RW disc is incompatible with a CD drive that does not support CD-RW discs.
A DVD disc is incompatible with a drive that does not have a DVD logo on the front.
Use Windows Update to check for updated drivers - If the disc is compatible with your CD or DVD drive, check for updated drivers that the CD or DVD drive may be missing. To check for driver updates that you can install, visit the following Microsoft Web site:http://windowsupdate.microsoft.comRegards
it can get damaged that way. but try rebooting yoru computer first. sometimes that can clear the problem if it just didnt load up correctly in the system. if that dont work, try rolling back the driver, if still samething then uninstall drivers and reinstall.
