View Full Version : DVD Drive not working

06-11-06, 10:14 PM

I have a LG DVD drive (not a dvd writer or combo drive) just a plain dvd drive.

and yesterday it was playing dvds fine but today all of a sudden it doesnt read dvds anymore.

However it can still play normal cds fine.

is there any way to fix this? or do i need to start looking for a new dvd drive?

Have you tried removing it from the PC and reinstalling it? How about testing it on another PC? Could be a software/driver issue.

yeah i tried uninstall/reinstall from device manager and nothing.

also tried unplugging, reboot, replug and still nothing.

havent tried on another pc cos i dont have another to test on.

also used this cd lens cleaner disc i have and that didnt work either.

it seems like the drive is working fine since it plays all my normal cds fine but its just dvds that it doesnt read
