Have you tried to close all programs and then insert the disc in the drive?

You have disk problem as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (burn CD & DVD and CD and DVD read).
Therefore, it is not unusual for 1 or 2 rooms with not so work that others do it properly.

Burning at low speed, or by using the master could help. A CD/DVD cleaner might help.

CD have a tolerance + - and you have to write on the side outside their tolerance. They can be given
However, it is generally more economical to replace the disk.

Several good info here:

Notes on the troubleshooting and repair of readers of compact disks and CD-ROM Drives


Try this troubleshooting:

Step 1: Please make all underneath the same if you've done it before as it's often the total of the process which
solves the problem.

Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double-click on the device - driver tab - click
Update the drivers (this will probably do nothing) - then RIGHT click the drive - UNINSTALL - REBOOT
This will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue below.

Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a loose cable or
slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

Your CD or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs - a Mr Fixit

The CD drive or the DVD drive does not work as expected on a computer that you upgraded to Windows Vista

When you insert a CD or a DVD, Windows Vista may not recognize the disc

Your CD or DVD drive cannot read or write media - A Mr Fixit

CD/DVD drive does not appear in Windows Vista, or you receive this error during the installation of Windows Vista after booting from the DVD (AHCI)
Drive CD - R or CD - RW Drive is not recognized as a recordable device

Hardware devices not detected or not working - A Mr Fixit

Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both
ends. Remove and replace, do not just tight. For laptops, you can often clean power and
contacts data with a pencil eraser.

Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD burning and)
Playback of CD and DVD). Therefore, it is not unusual for 1 or 2 rooms with not so work that others do it properly.

Did you follow the Troubleshooting Guide for the reader who still does not work? There are some registry entries
that the troubleshooter does not, and those who "could" be the cause.

Check with your system manufacturer Maker and device for possible firmware updates and the good
Your player registry entries.

Here are the keys in my opinion, are those in question - for the reader of CD/DVD subkeys of course that he will be
other subkeys in these keys. Be sure to ask specific keys involved as well as the parameters.


HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Hardware Profiles\0001\System\CurrentControlSet\Enum\IDE

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}


You can probably find more info here and maybe even registry settings correct for your CD/DVD drive

  • My ts-tb23l hp dvdwbd dvd drive won't recognise dvd-video.

    I have a hp Touchsmart 610 with windows 7 and the dvd player does not read video however it will play music. HP 610-1020 a TouchSmart desktop PC.  any ideas on why this is. brand new unit.


    Normally, it allows you to change 4 times and will remain regardless of the area in the fifth. Many DVD players (home systems) are now free players area (for example, in Australia) but the number of optical drives on the PC / laptops are not. There is a software called AnyDVD which allows you to play any area of the DVD and now comics on the PC / laptop.

    Kind regards.

  • Need to burn CDs that will play on MAC

    The CD I burned recently will not play on Mac. my friend it was made with control file using Lightscribe CD - R system.

    The MAC he spits. Please tell me how to make one for my friend (the one who will play!)


    I'm not sure if it will work (he says he supports Joliet and Joliet is supported by MAC OS X): for the software and for the confirmation of the MAC support for Joliet (although not all versions without additional software on the MAC except where it is included in MAC OS X.  The software comes with a free 14 day trail (so there is no financial risk and you get to check it for free).  This version of Express Burn Plus includes a trial of 14 days, the DVD recorder but after after 14 days, you can continue to use the CD burner for use no commercial free (but if you want to burn DVDs after that it costs $49.95 more to reactivate this feature).  I could not find any freeware that would do this (unless you can get by with CD and do not need to burn DVDs - it's free.  Vista cannot do.  There is no Microsoft product I know who can do it.  I couldn't find yet another option to provide you (and I spent almost an hour to research - I'm a little obsessed with the search for a solution).  And I mean EITHER DVD or CD (there were two, but they were not compatible with Vista).

    Again, it should work with MAC OS X, but earlier versions will need additional software to allow them to read Joliet (However, at first glance, it seemed that this software was readily available if I honestly did not check - read the second link on MAC support for Joliet for more information and then you can search for "Support of Joliet for MAC" or something like that on Google or Bing (or your friend may-) apres_tout you are doing most of the work and provide records him) he or she has to find and install everything what is necessary according to the MAC version.

    I hope this helps and I hope you can get CDS only then it will be free (you did mention CDs in your post, but maybe you just failed to mention DVD).

    Good luck!

  • Satellite P30-145: the drive won't recognise DVD double layer

    I have a Satellite P30-145 with a SupermultiDL DVD player. When I got the PC, I could write DVD double layer with no problems. Now the drive will not recognize DVD double layer at all. Even those from the same box that has worked well before. I use are Verbatim Double layer DVD + R 2.4 x discs.

    After a lot of internet research, I have downloaded and run DVDInfoPro. This application has reported that the Player did not support the DVD + RW DL. Very strange!

    Can anyone help? The drive is a carpet * a DVD-RAM UJ - 831S.

    Hi Lan

    This disc is certainly DL one, but I can imagine that the drive is defective and cannot calibrate lens in the right position. This model of laptop is more than two years, and if you have used this drive extensively, I can really imagine that the DL function is defective.

    What you can do is to clean the lens and see that it will help.

  • I'm running on xp and my media player11 won't play DVDs but will play CD and burn

    don't know if the codex is missing or hardware is broken

    WMP11 already play DVDs?

    Maybe you need a DVD decoder:

    (FWIW... it's always a good idea to create a system)
    Restore point before installing software or updates)

    Info about DVD decoders:
    Plug-ins for Windows Media Player Or you could try one of the following free media players
    who should read DVDs:

    VLC Media Player

    Media Player Classic
    (just unzip and run it... (no installation required)

    Media Player Classic Home Cinema
    (works on XP/Vista/7)

    Another option would be to download and install one of
    the following Codec Packs:

    I am considering buying a new dvd player to see if that solves it, but all hoping a met and solved this problem before

    The player uses different devices for the CD DVD vs.  It could be the laser and/or material for the part CD failed.  DVD players are cheap now, so a replacement won't cost you too much.  I see that the specifications indicate that the current drive has lightscribe, then choose a replacement that has this feature if necessary.

    My DVD RW drive does not detect the program, music or a blank cd but detects and read a movie cd. I tried uninstalling the driver and restarted my computer, looking for updated driver (said mine is newer), reset to default AutoPlay settings and nothing seems to work. It was when I got to my computer but then I caught a virus and all the hard drive should be dumped and re-installed the files. My drive has not worked for some time now and I don't remember for sure if it was when he left or if it worked fine after that for a while.
