Lenovo Y430 - Optiarc DVD RW AD-7640S ATA Device dvd drive not working

Hi guys,

My Lenovo Y430 - Optiarc DVD RW AD-7640S ATA Device dvd drive not working

Its not reading any of the cds/DVDs.

Please could you help me out how to correct this one

Once am placing any dvds the dvddrive light is blinking and after couple of seconds its not blinking more.

 

Mine is on WIndows Vista SP2

I checked dvd/cd-rom drivers in device manager its showing 'enabled' 'device is working properly' and registry settings also for 'upperclass' or 'lowerclass' entry all good.

 

Please someone help me out how to solve this problem.

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Regards,

Raghu

i could say some other things if it reads cds, not dvds. but there's something wrong with your dvd  "laser". buy new one.

Re: Lenovo Y430 - Optiarc DVD RW AD-7640S ATA Device dvd drive not working

I have a similar Laptop with same OS (Vista Home Premium SP2), but my DVD drive is "Optiarc DVD RW AD-7560S ATA Device".

 

I have a similar problem as stated by the OP. I'm able to read and write a CD (MP3, Movies, Data); read DVD movies, and also write DVD data. But the problem is with reading DVD Data files. I'm not able to read the DVD Data that I myself had written with the same drive.

 

The Driver doesn't seems to have a problem. And my Registry doesn't have the UpperFilters and LowerFilters entries.

 

Is this a problem with the DVD reader? Do I need to change the Drive? Or any other suggestions?

 

 

Thanks in advance!!

@bjawasa try removing the drive from the laptop and making sure it's well-seated in the interface when reinserted the drive. does it work?

@ yigit. Thanks for the response. But I feel I 'm not expert enough to try your suggestions. I feel the problem is with the Hardware. I probably will walk down to my Local service Centre and get it fixed.

@bjawasa it's %90 hardware issue. ask lenovo to change your dvd rom with new one for free if you have valid warranty.

you can call support line : hindi or english spoken -- 1800-3070-0010 (Toll- free) or 1800-113-324 (Toll- free)
