You dont need any software to "Read" a cd/dvd. The drivers needed are automatically loaded when you install the drive.
If you need software to make "Burn" discs, there are a few good free programs.
I use CD BurnerXP.
Imageburn "IMGBURN"

just google free burning software for others

Since the driver for all optical units is the same Windows one it means that there's corruption in your system. 
Run a full malware scan and after it perform a Repair install.

Hi there,

I think that the problem here may be that the Jumper on the CD-ROM needs adjusting. The Jumper is a tiny piece of plastic at the rear of the hardware in question.

There will be a diagram on the top, or rear of the CD-ROM, with a choice of 3 settings. If it is a solitary Optical drive then place the Jumper in the 'C' position.

If it is a Slave, or secondary drive, then place the Jumper in the 'S' position & if it is a Primary or Master drive the it is to be placed in the 'M' position, respectively.

I hope that this sees an end to your dillema & lots of luck.

Kindest regards,

Ste

hi there,

Does the light flash on the front when a disc is inserted or have you recently installed it as a Primary/Secondary optical drive? Plus, just as a matter of interest it will only read DVD's & read/write CD's.

Your problem could be down to a number of causes including a corrupt driver, where you will have to uninstall the driver by going into Device Manager, clicking the + sign in front of 'DVD/CD ROM drives,' right clicking on the Optical Drive in question, clicking properties/Driver Tab/Uninstall (Advanced).

This will remove a corrupt driver & when you restart your system the Hardware Manager will recognise the said Combo Drive & reinstall the driver.

If it is only unable to read DVD''s then you may require the necessary Codecs for your preferred Media Player, to support various file formats. I wish you the best of luck.

Kindest regards

Here's an easy way to get or update your DVD drivers:

You could try to use this driver scanning tool, which scans the computer for needed drivers and has an option to automatically retrieve them for you.

You can download this free driver scanning tool from here or directly from this link.

After you have downloaded the above file, double-click on it and follow the simple steps to install it. Then, when it asks if you want to run it, just answer yes. This is easier than manually searching, downloading and installing the drivers.

If, with all of the above, sound doesn't work, you can try with the System Restore. To know more about System Restore, go to this link.

If none of the above methods worked, pull out your DVD drive and test it in another computer. You can also try re-installing Windows and lastly try another drive, if it still fails to work.

Hope that helps,
Regards,
Raspal
