I have a compaq presario 2500 series with a sony CRX830E combo drive. Since recently my CDROM drive is not able to read "only DVDs'. Other CDs are working fine. Also i'm having a problem with burning CDs as the software (nero, roxio) freezes in between and the drive locks up. Kindly suggest what to do.
It's common problem with combo drives in notebooks, they don't seem to last long. Try this:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers. If the problem persists the laser is faulty in the drive and the drive will need to be replaced.
My crx830E CD-RW/DVD-ROM does not read nor open DVDs & CDs. Please give me advice for the solutions? to repair !!
