YOU MAY HAVE TO DISABLE YOUR VIRUS PROTECTION? SOME DVD'S AND CD'S ARE PASSWORD PROTECTED, WHICH UPON TRYING TO PLAY, WILL NOT WORK THE FIRST TIME UNTIL EITHER THE PASSWORD IS CORRECTLY ENTER...WITH THE VIRUS PROTECTION DISABLED!

DISABLE ALL YOUR VIRUS, DEFENDER, FIREWALL ETC., AND SET UNTILL YOU RESTART YOUR COMPUTER TO REACTIVATE OR RE- ENABLE.

YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO DO THIS AGAIN? DEPENDING ON IF YOU ARE PLAYING THE SAME DVD, OR CD!

HOPE THIS HELPS!

laptops are very tricky to open...it is much better to look for a nearest compaq support center and have it checked by their own technician.

I have a Dell laptop 4100, It has a cd-rw drive, plus a zip drive and a floppy drive, all interchangeable, I need a drive that will play a dvd and can be used to play game cd's, what do I need and where...

You need atleast a DVD-ROM drive. You can get a drive that burns DVD+r,-r,+rw,-rw. Either will be fine to play dvds. You can try newegg.com,tigerdirect.com,directron.com,geeks.com.

It won't see a blank disk or write to it

CD-ROM and DVD-ROM. ROM stands for "Read Only Memory". On the other hand, CD-RW, DVD-RW stand for "Read/Write". So, if the specs of your laptop say that you only have a DVD-ROM, not COMBO or something ending in RW, then you laptop's optical drive is simply not built for writing to discs.

When I burn a music cd it will not play in my sterio or cd player, it only plays on the laptop. Can you tell me what to do to fix this.

Make sure the players can play the format you are using to burn. My surround sound system will play most audio but my car system will only play an origional cd format (AU) not mp3 or wav for example. Also some systems will not play cd-rw but will play cd-r and some won't play anything but origional cd's.

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

Dvd writer wont accept dvd-r

If you have posted the correct model of writer, then it only supports the writing of DVD+R and DVD+RW discs, but CD-R and CD-RW disc writing are supported, and it should play all forms of DVD, so it won't burn DVD-R and RW discs, but if it wont play all types then try a cd/dvd cleaner, but to be honest when writers start playing up the lens is normally faulting and a replacement drive will be required.
