My dvd drive in my Emachines laptop cant read data disks anymore, but it can read/play music and video dvds without any problem.

I have an Emachines D732z. I have Windows XP and drive is hl-dt-st dvdram gt32n.

I'm unsure of the cause of the problem. Can anybody help out? thanks!

Are the Data discs CD's? When you say Musicand video dvd's do you mean Music Cds and Video dvds?

The data discs are cds and dvds. Driver can't read any of them. The video dvds and music cds work fine..

When I try to load the data discs, it shows 0mb. The data discs works on other dvd drives.

You could try running a DVD/CD Cleaning disc in the drive. It may just be a dirty lense.
