Dvd drive cant read dvds but can read vcds

First of all, are you trying to read Blu-Ray DVDs? Unless your drive is made for them, it won't be able to. The same may be true if you're trying to read a dual-layer DVD. Not all DVD drives can handle them.

CDs and DVDs need different kinds of laser light to be read, and a combo drive like yours is essentially two drives in one. Sometimes a problem develops in the pickup and it can read one kind of disc and not the other. My experience is that it's usually the DVD function that fails more often. The data on a DVD is much more densely packed and harder to read.

Try making sure the discs you're trying to read are clean. If the problem is affecting all the DVDs you try, replace the drive. New drives for a desktop computer only cost around $20 to $30 and they are easy to change. In a laptop, the drive will be more expensive and maybe hard to find; in that case you may want to consider a USB external burner as a replacement. This is also an option for desktops as well.

Ok i asked before if my drive will burn both dvd and cd. the answer was yes. but when i installed the drive and ran my dvd creator program. it said this drive is dvd read only.

Hi mikey7420 ,


The drive name itself is the clue to know whether it can burn dvds or not.

  • In your case it's a CD-RW (read and write or rewritable) and DVD-ROM (Read only memory and not read and write or rewritable as in the case of CD)
  • Perhaps the one who told you did not understand your question properly , and understood it , in the sense that it can read CDs as well as DVDs , as far as Dvd-ROM drives are concerned many shopkeepers who are especially new working in the shop just make a guess and answer our question which could lead to this misunderstanding or incorrect information being passed on.
  • So the next time you buy a DVD drive which should have a read and write functionality as well , then look up for a CD_RW,DVD-RW drive.
  • Also remember that DVD-RW drive can by default read and write CDs as well , but it's not true for CD drives..
  • So usually a DVD-RW drive can read and write Cds as well as DVDs but a CD-RW drive can either read or read and write a DVD depending on whether it's a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW.
Hope this helps.

I have a SD M1502 DVD-ROM drive. it can read CD's just fine, but it can only read SOME DVDs. example: im watching an anime series, store bought, but when i get to Disc 4 the drive cant read it. the DVDs...

There are a couple of things to look at: First of all does your computer have software to read copy-
protected DVD's. Second if this anime set of DVD's is imported from Japan it might not be compatible with players from the US. If you look on the Internet you can find patches for your DVD player software to read foreign DVD's. Check out VLC and libdvdcss.
