DVD is not being detected by combo drive

\015 I have combo drive (CD R/W, DVD R) installed on my system. Problem is that, when ever I insert any DVD, my combo drive does read that DVD whereas all CDs are working fine. Can any body help me to sort out this problem.\015\012Regards,\015\012\015\012Imran\015

Answers :

Hi Imran,
Sadly this is a fairly common problem with combo drives. In all likelihood, it will cost you more to have the drive repaired than to replace it.
I will suggest purchasing a dvd writer to replace the combo drive.
They are fairly inexpensive.

Some drives have problems with reading cheap noname Cd-Dvd discs. But in your case I understand that none of Dvds are working. I can only may suggest you to try to find updated firmware for your exact model. And if you have a problem only in decoding you can install K-Lite Codecs or KmPlayer it plays nearly all video formats.
Good luck!
