This is unlikely to be a software problem unfortunately sry :( From experience I would say the laser/photo quadrant detector in ya Combo is damaged or faulty these Combo drives seem to have this Ahem .. weakness.. The DVD's are fairly easy to replace.. perhaps ya may find one on Ebay?

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.

Computer does not read CDs, but does read DVDs. The drive makes this repeated noise as if it is trying to read it, but never does.

This is a problem with the reading lens in your DVD combo drive. Suggestions: AT YOUR OWN RISK
Get a lens cleaner CD (Best Solution). If you dont have one grab a cue tip and some rubbing alcohol and dip the cue tip in it. Dab it a bit so it's not soaking wet with the alcohol. Then open dvd ram drive's trap and rub the laser lens with the cue tip. Test now.

If al fails, you probbaly need to get your drive replaced if its still inder warranty.

MAY U PLZ ASSIST ME WITH MY ACER LAPTOP ASPIRE 4330 THE DRIVE IS UNABLE TO WRITE ALL THE DVDS BUT IT IS ABLE TO READ DVDS THE ONLY PROBLEM IS BURNING DVDS. HOW CAN I ENHENCE MY DVD/CD-RW COMBO TO WRITE THE...

No Sir, Acer Aspire 4330 comes with different Optical Media Loadings, ( You can see a pdf file here )
Like;
  • DVD/CD-RW combo drive
  • 8X DVD-Super Multi double-layer drive.
But you have the first one, The Combo drive not the super so you can READ both CD's DVD's but can write only CD's.

Hope this removes your dilemma.

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
