Drive or CD problem?

by CharlieSpencer In reply to cant open a duplicate/alr ...

Has the CD / DVD drive ever worked, or is this the first time you've tried it? Try removing it from laptop and then putting it back. It's possible you have a bad drive and may have to contact Dell tech support.

Have you tried more than one CD? It may be the CD is bad, especially if it is one someone burned for you.

Your laptop should have come with burner software, and software to read CDs and play DVDs. If it didn't, you can go to Dell's web site and download them.

Is your DVD drive a DVD player or burner? If the text at the front says e.g. DVD multi player, it is just a player. If it says DVD-RW, it is a burner.

Same problem with Dell laptop DVD-CDRW by Samsumg

by num1005 In reply to DVD-RW?

I have the same problem with Dell laptop DVD-CDRW (it reads DVD but writes CD only). It does not read the disks it writes itself. When I check those disks on other CD readers, some read them, others don't.

My CD reader/writer reads some of its own CDs but not others. I was told that I need a particular brand of CDs for it to work well.

What brand of CD's do I need to buy? I am using now CDs by Tevion.
