Can be that dvd read is dead but cd's read not!



I am having trouble with my Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-109 drive on WinXP. The hardware is recognized and installed, however anytime I try to insert a DVD disk, it spins for a while and then nothing.

If I try double-click-ing the drive from explorer (which does not show an updated name), the window hangs.

Can be that dvd read is dead but cd’s read not!

However he read cd’s normaly…

Can anyone help me…



DVD burners have two separate lasers for CD and DVD media. If you have problems only with DVD discs (both burned and pressed discs) but no problems at all with CDs, then it’s possible that your drive is damaged :frowning:


Thank’s on answers…
