If it's a drive where you can see the laser you need to slide it to one side or the other. I think it's because it's out of sync.

It's not reading cd, or DVD

Check for scratches on the disk surface - these can inhibit the player from reading a disk correctly.

Some players will read olny certain type(s) of disks. This is an issue mostly for disks created on a computer, not those that are prerecorded and available for purchase or rental that contain movies and music.

As stated above, dIsks created on a home computer may not always be readable on a home player. Re-writeable and recordable types that are not listed as being compatible will not work. Check your manual to see which types are acceptable and not. DVD types are: DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW and DVD-RAM CD Types are CD-R, CD+R and CR-RW. Older home CD and DVD players generally work with "-R" types and the newer players with both "-R" & "+R" types. "-RW" and "-RAM" types are the least likely to be readable in home players.

Additionally, most players require that disks created on a home computer be "finalized". This is an extra step that isn't required by most CD / DVD drives in computers. Just because it works in your computer doesn't mean it will work in your home player. If you're using compatible media and still not able to read disks, check your CD / DVD recording software options to enable finalization.

Good luck!

DVD RAM change to CD Rom when i inset a disc

Check your computer drivers for that drive. It may be a driver error. It has happened to me before and I fixed it by reinstalling the drivers. It should be a software issue if you can still read CD disks.

I am unable to read any cd/dvd in my ATAPI DVD DH16A6L SCSI dvd ROM, checked in device manager there shows no problem.

Hi arunp_1995,

  • If you are unable to read any CD or DVD in your DVD -RAM drive , the this could be an indication of a bad lens , or a lens that required clearning.
  • I would suggest you to get a lens cleaner from the market and use it to clean the lens, by just inserting it in the drive , letting it spin for some time , and then removing it.
  • After you go through this lens cleaning process you can test your DVD-RAM drive , whether it's reading any disks or not , if yes then , problem is resolved, if no , then I would suggests you to connect the DVD-RAM to your friend's computer and check if it's working or reading your cds and dvds, if not then you need to get it replaced within the warranty period if the drive is still under warranty , or get a replacement, as it could be that repairing would cost you almost around the cost for a new drive.

Playstation 3 (PS3) Console: disks are not reading. The ps3 is working fine oth...

Hi,

This is quite a common problem with the PS3 and is caused by a problem with the laser on the Bluray drive which is malfunctioning and can no longer 'see' or read the game disk properly.

The PS3 uses a dual laser system. This consists of either a dual refractor type lens or two entirely seperate lenses depending on which pickup is fitted to your particular system. One laser is for reading ordinary DVD disks and PS2 disks and the other for Bluray and PS3 games.


The symptoms you describe are quite typical of a failure of one or both of these lasers.

For more information on how to resolve the problem please have a look at this FixYa Tip on the subject.

Playstaiton 3 not reading disks

This is the number one problem with PS3's.

98% of the time the blu-ray drive needs to be replaced.

You can either repair it yourself by following guides on youtube (total cost around $60-90)

Or you can have Sony repair it for $150.

You can reach Sony @

1-800-345-SONY

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I have a portable dvd player model number mdp1030 the unit keeps saying no disk I have tried numerous disks same results.

then i think the lens is not able to read the disk.

and so i would suggest you to buy a disk cleaner CD and run it in your DVD player and then use your regular disks.

if this is not working then it is some internal fault in your DVD players lens.
