DVD drive doesn't read DVD's

  1. I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 and can't run my burned dvd's off my drive. They're data Dvd's that I've burned using the same drive, but once they're burned, they won't read.

    I've loaded and used the burned dvd's on other computers so the dvd's work fine, just not on my Dell laptop. It has worked in the past but somewhere along the line it stopped. It's been like this for a while, but I rarely use dvd's so it hasn't been a priority. anyone have any ideas?

    You will probably have to replace the DVD drive. They don't last forever and yours sounds like it's starting to fail.
