Windows XP Professional SP3 recognizes D DVD/CD-RW drive in my computer, but does not read the content.

Control Panel indicates that the COMBI RW16x10/DVD unit. Properties indicate that a new disc has no free space.  Does not read CDs or DVDs with the content.  All indications from the Panel indicate that "device is working properly", but I can't read anything. Updated and modified drivers and troubleshooting I tried without success.

  • DVD/CD rom drive reads CDs but does not read the DVD.

    My Dell Inspiron 1300 laptop has a DVD/CD rom drive.  It loads all the CD I want and them automatically opens on the D drive.  When I put in a DVD movie it will not play.  I open my computer, and then look at the D drive, and it does not even recognize that there is a DVD inside but it shows a screen of a CD that I put in there.  This tells me that it works and it has a green light on the side which shows.  Also, when I insert the DVD it makes sounds as it tries to recognize, but then it stops and does not appear.  Can anyone help?  I really appreciate it.  I'm not very savvy computer.  I know that some in this topic because I am a teacher and try to catch up with things, but I'm certainly no computer technology.  Thank you very much!  Let me know if I need to give more info.  I think the reader is Sony CRX835EK but I'm not 100% sure on this one here.

When I insert a CD with the data, CD towers, there is slippage noises, at different speeds. The mouse cursor changes briefly shhowing a disc below it, the orange light flashes, but after some 40 seconds or so only a message appears "Please insert a readable disc.

  • CD/DVD drive works, but does not read the CD

    Upgrade to Windows 7, last week. All right.  In the past days, have been ripping the CD for my MP3 player.  Tonight, the CD/DVD stopped reading media.  I can see the drive in Windows Explorer.  When I click on the drive icon in the WinExplorer, the drawer opens for loading; However, when I insert a CD and close the drawer, read access / the light blinks but nothing to indicate that the CD is actually read.  CD new no scratches.  Anyone have any idea how to solve this problem?

    If this is a brand new CD, the CD's may be defective or your disk may need an update of firmware to understand a new type of media.

    The laser may be dirty or co - is told in passing is not.

  • There was an update to Windows XP sp1 would recognize higher than 127 readers ~ 137 GB, why this update was not in the version later service pack?

    (1) there was an update to Windows XP sp1 would recognize higher than 127 readers ~ 137 GB, why this update was not in the version later service pack?

    (2) where can I find so that I can then reinstall windows XP, updated to sp1, install the patch to see the complete player to sp2 and 3 can be installed?

    original title: supervision XP

    Maybe the disc has been formatted as part of your original installation of Windows XP with a pre - SP1 version of Windows.  At that point, he could only format the drive as 137 GB.  After you upgrade to a post-SP1 version of Windows, look at your hard drive with Disk Manager (start-> Run-> "diskmgmt.msc").  It can show the rest of your unused space that you might then be able to allocate in a second partition.

    If you want to keep one big partition, you will need to get a 3rd third party tool that can extend your current 137 GB partition to use more of the available space.  Google for it, plenty of them out there including those that are free.

  • CD\DVD player does not display the contents of the data DVD.

    CD\DVD player does not display the contents of the data DVD, but will display the content of the data CD.  What is happening on more than one PC, and it began when Active Directory GPOS have been applied for the PC.  If untying policies the problem persists.  What happens on DVD ROM and DVD RAM drives.  Scanning software has been added to these machines, think it might be an ASPI crush.  All these machines are XP SP3 running McAfee.  When you insert a DVD with data on this topic, the name of the drive in windows password DVD RAM drive to CD drive, and if you try and browse the DVD it displays as a blank CD.  I changed something on the PC with the policy but cannot understand what he.  Other identical PC can view the contents of the DVD very well, but they never had the same strategies.  Any ideas, thank you.

  • CD/DVD is recognized by the computer, but does not

    My CD/DVD is recognized by the computer, but does not... tried fix it did not help

    My CD/DVD drive has stopped working.  My computer recognizes the drive but when I put a disk in it cannot read.  I tried multiple disks, but nothing will work.  I tried microsoft fixit, but it does not work.  He said that the media cd/DVD drive is not readable.  Help, please.

    Is that your CD/DVD drive is older than 1 year?  Then, the drive may be defective, with a faulty lens.

    I don't think that any form of manual registry change or fix tool will work in the situation.

  • My laptop does not read the dvd, but another laptop computer bed. PL advise solution. Thank you

    My laptop is Pressario V2000. My laptop does not read the dvd, but another laptop reads the same dvd. PL is the solution. Thank you

    Try another DVD to verify that your laptop can read at least the other DVD.  If he can't play other DVD's then you need to replace the DVD - CD ROM drive supplied with your Pressario.

    Another thing you can try is to check fingerprints or scratches on the DVD, some DVD players are more sensitive than others.

    Hello Ann,.

    If you allowed them access to your PC, then it is a problem. I considered reinstalling my OS and change all my passwords. It would also make sense, if you use the online banking etc., to inform your bank that you have a security hole on your PC. This will alert them to anyone using your current password to the Bank etc.
