Hello

You have disk problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD burning and)
Playback of CD and DVD). So it is not unusual for parts from 1 or 2 to not work so that others do
correctly.

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

Brand of the CD or DVD drive can also be the problem. Low quality (cheap brands) are always problematic.

CD/DVDs have a tolerance + - and your can read/write on the edge outside these discs
tolerances. They may be delivered, but it is generally more economical to replace the disk.

Notes on the troubleshooting and repair of readers of compact disks and CD-ROM Drives
http://www.repairfaq.org/repair/F_cdfaq7.html#CDFAQ_014

===========================================

This troubleshooting could not help if there is alignment and/or wear issues however it
a shot.

Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
a process that solves the problem.

Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
RESTART 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 coward
cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

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
Burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 operational so that other parts
do it right.

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

Check with your Maker system and a device for the two possible firmware updates and
the correct registry entries for your car.

Here are the keys that I of course are those in question - for the subkeys of the CD/DVD drive
as there will be other subkeys in these keys. Do not forget to ask specific keys involved as well as
the parameters.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\IDE

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 the exact registry for your CD/DVD settings
drive from someone with the same model.

Use DevManView to locate the CD/DVD in the registry (be careful and do a prior Restore Point)
nothing change) - find the DevManView device and then make a right click on it free in RegEdit.

DevManView - free - an alternative to the standard Windows Device Manager, which displays all the
devices and their properties in flat table, instead of the tree viewer

I hope this helps.

  • Windows media player won't recognize DVD

    My media player can read and play a CD from the CD but when I insert a DVD, nothing happens. Furthermore, I recently installed a software AnyDVD and CloneDVD2 to burn DVDs and would like to know if this new software is the cause of the problem. When I insert a DVD, the AnyDVD does not analyse it and Windows Media Player will not play it (or he acknowledges in the DVD player). And when I try to clone using CloneDVD2, the dialog box says "unable to read video files" and "the device is not ready." I had reviewed the literature on the decoders and drivers, but it ' s all Greek to me. " My PC has apparently already the software necessary to perform these tasks (ie. drvers and decoders), I checked for these programs > please help.

  • Windows media player won't recognize dvd playback or record

    My Media Player will not play it plays the cd and burn cd dvd if I try windows Director, acknowledges that the dvd drive is there but it will not record or play videos

    The reader has already worked? If it used to work OK but suddenly failed, then there's a chance (the DVD part of) the drive has failed. You could try a CD/DVD cleaner lens to see if that helps.

    It may be interesting to try this fixit MS - http://support.microsoft.com/mats/cd_dvd_drive_problems/ and run the built-in utility to see if they find and fix anything.

    I guess that its listed as 'work' and showing no problem in the device (on the Panel) Manager?, but its worth checking.

    It may also be useful to check on the support site for the PC see if there are updates made support for the PC and player. These can sometimes help.

  • Windows Media Player won't rip CD more. I put it in MP3 format. I get the COOD1OD2 error message.

    Windows Media Player won't rip CD more. I put it in MP3 format. I get the COOD1OD2 error message, and by virtue of the clarification it indicates that the error message is COODOFBO which says that the setting of the CD in Device Manager do not match parameter of cd in the drive. I use to be able to rip the CD months ago. I just upgraded to WMP 11 because the sansa clip has not been recognized and updated WMP. How can I fix this.

    Thank you

  • Windows Media Player won't take the exit.

    It's a little weird.  When you play any of the music or video in media player, if you click on it X or exit the application, it is supposed to stop playing music or video.  The problem I have is that it is not.  He continues to play in the background and I can't figure out how to let him stop playing.  I have to finish ebb in media player and hit close then exit.  Even then I'm not sure its background nteh entirely closedi.  How can I get windows media player to exit when I type the exit?  I can't find anything in the options that it says must remain open in the background and continue to play.

    Holy buckets.  I found it.  So I installed 1.0 windows sideshow and found.  Its my logitech G15 keyboard.  It's the difference between computers.

    Can someone help me how to solve this problem. Thank you

    May be that the video file format is not compatible with Windows Media Player.

    Options: -.

    1] download and install VLC Player. It's free and supports file formats more than WMP.

    2] download and install the codecs

    Personally, I prefer VLC Player-if you have that then not need to download and install the codec of any third party.
