Having problems with your Dell Dimension 4400 PC Desktop ?

My D drive (CD-RW) plays audio cds just fine but doesn't read DVDs (Movies). What's causing this problem? I own a dell dimension 4400 desktop. Thanks

Answers :

Is it a CD-RW only drive or is it CD/DVD drive?  CD drives won't read DVDs.
Due to dusty environment it happens the lens gets dusty

open the dvd tray u can see that shiny eye like thing try cleaning th lens gently in round movement with a tissue paper or very soft cloth used to clean lcd screens see if it works , other wise ur DVD drive lens got weak from use now adays service centers are getting tons of them everyday for replacements

pls do rate me if i fixed what u wanted
