Dvd drive reads cds only



dvd drive will read cds but not dvds, the drive shows activity with a dvd, I also have a dvd burner installed and it is working fine so the software I have is working with my primary drive. Is it possiable my dvd laser light is burned out?


Hi and Welcome!

seems your drive is dying. Inability to handle one type of media (CD or DVD) is a sign for a hardware failure.
If there is an opportunity to try the drive in another computer, this is the last check you can do.
