Did it ever play DVDs? If it did, and this is a recent problem, the laser lens may be worn out or dirty - try a cleaner.

Any cd cleaner should do it; at least the two I have used were for either DVDs or CDs.

Right i cleaned it 3 times to be sure and it still wont play dvds onlt music and data so its either the dvd part that not working or a problem with the setup but everything seems ok,it wont even recognise a dvd when one is put in say no disc in drive.

The fact that it won't recognise a DVD would suggest that the DVD laser has failed... but that is only my impression - others may know better.

Would this not stop the drive working all together?


I have emailed Cyberlink and attached the log
in that is says the drive is not recognised and says it is a cd rom drive,so im getting a feeling i need a new dvd player.
