    1)First of all, you need to check your entire drive, whether the cd/dvd drive got any issues or fixes!
    2)Now, Go to start menu → Search for “Device manager”
    3)In device manager → Double click on CD/DVD → Click on Update drivers
    4)After updating the drivers, usually your computer will be unable to find any update for the CD/DVD drive
    5)After that, Right click on the drive → Click on “Uninstall”
    6)Reboot your system, after Uninstalling the driver
    The main reason for your issue is because of, Bad CD/DVD drive, could have a loose cable!
    That’s it over!

    Hi Friend,

    >> You are facing problem in Read and Write files to DVD in Windows Vista.

    >> First of all just check that your drive is for CD and DVD both.

    >> Because CD Drive can not write files to DVD.

    >> Then Check the Driver of the CD/DVD Drive in the System.

    >> Open Device Manager, using Right click on my computer and Select Manage option.

    >> Then Select CD/DVD Drive and Select Update driver option.

    >> After that Restart your system.


    I Hope you will understand.

    All The Best.

    Hello Friend,

    Well, there seems to some issue with your Dell CD/DVD drive. You should first check whether the driver of the drive is old and needs to be updated or not. If so you should update the drive as soon as possible and check your CD/DVD drive once again for it's functionality. You should talk to the Dell customer care and reuqt them to help you in this issue or you can also visit your near by computer store and talk to the authorized technician. Your issue is rather strange , there is some hardware issue involved and you need to replace your CD/DVD drive.

    Bye,

    Re: My CD/DVD Drive can read and write files and folders to CD but not DVD in windows vista

    Hi, Dear friend

    It might be the problem of CD/DVD drivers or with the DRIVE lenses

    Most of the cases this issue ... will be generated with HARDWARE problem ( DRIVE LENSES ISSUES ) In my case I already faced the same issue

    However, Before going to confirm it ... Try to check the DRIVERS also ... because some times the same issue will be arised withe DRIVERS too...

    So, first of all try to update or re-install the drivers about the CD/DVD ....and check if it helps

    That is press windows key+R and type devmgmt.msc and click OK

    Now expand CD/DVD-ROM DRIVERS option then right click on ROM DEVICE click UPDATE DRIVER SOFTWARE option and follow the screen instructions to complete the process

    And if you want to re-install the drivers ...simply right click on ROM DEVICE choose UNINSTALL ...then follow the instructions after that RESTART the PC then re-install the drivers and check again

    And Also try in all the possible ways like RESTORE or Repair the windows... ... in all the cases if the issue is SAME ... then it must be the problem of HARDWARE

    In that case try to Contact your service center and repair it

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
