For burning, I would recommend Nero, Alcohol 120% or ImgBurn.

Hmm, sounds different to the usual problems I've come across but try this:
Paste the following into a new text document and "Save As..." type "All Files (*.*)" and call it "DVD Fix.bat"

@ECHO OFF
REG DELETE "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}" /v "UpperFilters /f > NUL
ECHO Press any key to restart the computer.
PAUSE > NUL
Shutdown.exe -r -t 0 -f -c "UpperFilters reg key removed to fix CD/DVD-ROM" -d p:2:3

Run the file and restart your computer when prompted.

If you're trying to write to a blank disc, make sure in the drive's properties that you have recording/burning enabled. If you do, try re-installing your CD/DVD burning suite. If you didn't have one, try a system restore.

If this doesn't work or you've disable system restore, you can go into hardware manager and roll-back the driver. If you don't have a roll-back available. uninstall the driver and restart your computer. A default Windows driver should then install.

Check the drive is physically performing - does it load/eject the disc? Does it spin-up? Are you able to read any discs?
I you have any further problems, it would help if we had the model name of your laptop.

It could be a problem with the lens, you should try cleaning the lens, it's already gone bad there is no harm in trying

if that doesn't work you can either repalce the lens or purchase a new DVD/CD drive

There should be a small pin-hole on the face of the cd dvd player, shove a paper clip in the hole until it opens the player and ejects the disc.

Yes. The drive is dead.

No drivers are necessary. Check if the unit is properly connected (power and data cable).

Download VLC (google it) for free, see if that plays the dvd. Most likely your player has an issue, VLC plays ANYTHING (pretty much!) without issue.

If that doesnt work then you'll have a problem with the actual drive.

change rom

Usually means just that.
The input source you have switched to has no signal.
Does it have built in freeview? just plugging an ariel off the roof no longer works without a digital receiver.

Backup all your important files.and emails

Try a Restore Point. Restore back past when the reg started error messages.

If unsucessful, sorry, means a complete reinstall/setup installation, but al least you will have saved your important docs, remebering to save to removable HD.

Hi a6291,

Your need to post back the model number of your presario, there must be 2000 different presario's out there. Typically, you need to take off the back panel, and then just two screws, but I won't know where the two screws are located until I know the model.

Thanks

Mark

Have you disconnected both the POWER and the DATA cables between the motherboard and the DVD drive?

Is there any "slider" that "locks/unlocks" the drive into its "home" position?

Have you tried to reseat the drive itself, when its off you should be able to take out the drive and put it back in, see if that helps.
