Having problems with your Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook ?

Dell Inspiron E1505 CD/DVD Drive reads only dell disks.

\015 The drive stopped reading disks but can be found on my computer. I finally put in one of the dell disks that came with the computer and it read that one and worked just fine. I did all the updates dell told me would help, but it still wont read any other disks.\015\012Help Please...\015

Answers :

If the driver didnt fix your problem, your disk drive might be faulty , maybe the problem is on the disk drives lens this is very common problem 2 any other cd/dvd rom drives.
I was working on a Dell Latitude D810 for a customer. It had the new Zimuse trojan and I was trying to get a reload started after getting the data off with a boot key, but it would not read any thing I put it in it. Thinking it was a hardware issue( I did not know about the Zimuse yet) I popped a Dell diagnostic disk in and omg it ran. Read all Dell disks after reload but nothing else. I updated bios, IDE controller drivers, and flashed the drive firmware. Still nothing but dell. Found this post. Popped the Philips diskcleaner from Wally World and bang. It reads everything. Dell must have a special "Dell Dirty Disk" routine in the bios where it reads a subpar data line over and over till it picks up the track. How about a Probably dirty lens message!
