I use ASUS notebook, i have an issue with my dvd r/w.
when i insert any disk into it the disk starts reading and it doesnot displays the data inside it.
when i remove the disk again and the attempts for multiple times then the disk gets detected. I am able to eject the disk, the dvd gets detected in bios.
what is the issue with it ?

Do you have RecordNow installed?
I've noticed that somehow RecordNow seems to "downgrade" DVD writers to CD Players, unless you go in through the RecordNow software. It's jolly tedious and I usually end up uninstalling RecordNow and installing proper software that does it properly, like Nero.

The dvd does not reads the data in cd or dvd. i dont want it to write at present if it just read that is enough for me.

what you have told about ur problem!
maximum time it happens for hardware fault. i.e, the lens of the drive is not working properly.
i suggest you to clean the lens by a lens cleaner and after that if the problem occurs, contact with service center.
