My DVD player and CD burner is no longer reading DVD I can do the model it is a SONY CRX835E.


Hi

Are you sure that this dvd-rom can support the DVD media you are using?

There DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-R, DVD+R and DL (Dual Layer) DVD formats now, not all of which might be supported by older combo drives like yours.

Also try a DVD Lens Cleaner disc to clear any dust, grime and dirt from the DVD Lens.

Check if the DVD you are trying has region limitations in conflict with the region settings in your Video Decoder program (such as PowerDVD, WinDVD etc,n s.). If so, you can sometimes change the region settings a limited number of times in the Tools option of your Video Decoder.

Try downloading and installing firmware updates from the Sony Support site.

make sure Autorun is not disabled in your settings.

My computer > right click on DVD icon > Autorun > set as the Default Setting for all similar file/media types.

I hope this helps.

some drives ( multi-Drives ) will read and write CDs but Only read DVDs.
Also check that the Drive supports DVD- Or DVD+ Disks.

Not reading dvds


It says that it's a CD-RW drive- a CD-RW drive can't read/write DVD's, you need a DVD drive. You can pick one up for rather cheap from several online retailers - www.newegg.com www.tigerdirect.com etc.
