    I have the same problem with commercial CD/DVD videos. My DVD-RAM Drive recognizes some DVD videos but not others. On another site a member ended up buying a $16 driver from a dot.com, which he said resolved the problem; but, all I get from HP (since this is a new notebook) is to send it to them for repairs. I am not sure that the E: Drive is the problem, nor does Windows necessarily seem to be the culprit. The DVD videos play fine on a DVD player, they just won't play on my notebook.

    Hi



    I have bought a Packard Bell Easy Note Skype edition from Dixon (Ammen
    Outlet)Netherlands and I have a problem with the Philips DVD ROM. It
    only writes Cds but not DVDs. Its not writing Sony, Moserbaer and other
    branded DVDs. However, I am able to write one brand of local DVD
    available here in the Indian market.

    Its PHILIPS DVD RW SDVD8441 DVD/CD ROM DRIVES



    Please let me know.

CDROM CAN NOT READ CD'S Try cleaning the lens using a high grade CD Lens Cleaner. Sony\ACER\BENQ Lens Drives are notorious when it comes to compatibility.

My cd/dvd burner on laptop wont recognise blank dvd


You said that you are using Windows XP. So, you have an older computer. Have you looked in the Device Manager and verified that it can read DVDs. Older system so you might have a CD only drive in there.

Make sure the DVD drive is set as the 1st bootable drive in the bios, exit and SAVE from the bios.
Make sure the disk is clean and unscratched. Try it again, pressing a key when it asks.
If this still does not work, try the disk in another PC if possible. If this will not boot the other computer into the instalation process. Your disk may be damaged

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.

It can't read or burn any data on any empty disks (CD-Rom/DVD)! but it can read any other written disks like: programs , Movies , audio disks , data disks just when I put a blank or Empty disk it seems...


Some CD burners are either "+" or "-" or both "+ -".

That said you will have to check what type of burner you have. Example, you cannot stick a "+" blank cd into a "-" burner, and visa versa.

However, if your cd burner can read and burn both types, you should be okay.

DVD-Rom will read the movie but won't write (burn) it. Bad block of memry


>> The Device has a bad block of memory, which Windows attempted to read.

Which CD/DVD disk are you trying to _read_ ?
Can you read this disk in a different computer ?
If not, then the disk is scratched or greasy or otherwise damaged.

Does the error occur when you try to start to _write_ ?
If so, the "blank" CD/DVD media may not be compatible with your hardware.
Find a "writable" disk from a different manufacturer, and try to write to it.
If that works, then you may need to do a "firmware-upgrade" on your CD/DVD-writer, to make it compatible with newer "blank" media disks.

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

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.

My Philips DVD8421 burner will not recognize a blank DRD-R disc.


Ok, the reason is quite simple. The Philips DVD8421 does not recognise the DVD-R format.Not all DVD/CD burners read all discs. It does recognise DVD+R though. So all you need to do is use these discs instead. This should solve your problem.

Hope that helps.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.
