Is the drive listed in My Computer?

>You need to install the drivers for Lightscribe; if you don't have them Google Lightscribe HP and you should find them on the HP website. Then you need a disk label burning program that runs Lightscribe. Droppix.com has a good one, I think HP also has a basic one.

There are a couple of issues that can cause the tray of an internal optical drive to stay closed when you press the drive's eject button. One: there is no power to the drive. If the drive does not show up in the list of discs in the computer, this could be your problem. (In any Windows OS, click Start > Computer (My Computer) or double left click the icon for Computer.) You will need to open the computer and check that the power cable is fully seated and oriented correctly (it won't fit the wrong way). For a desktop, an IDE drive uses a 4 pin power connector. A SATA drive uses a 15 pin power connector. If your power supply has additional power connections for the type of drive, try a different connector. If the power connector has a 4 pin to 15 pin adapter, make sure this is fully seated. (Try a new adapter.) If that doesn't help, make sure that the power supply is providing enough power for all devices. The second problem may be failure of the open/close mechanism.

I recently had an optical drive that slowly had the open/close mechanism fail. At first the eject button wouldn't work when there was no disc in the drive; using the Eject option from the OS did work. Then the OS eject stopped working consistently and it wouldn't eject with a disc in the drive. I used the Emergency ejection option (straighten a paperclip)to check for a problem with dirt in the mechanism or the belt slipping and then put a disc in the drive. Replacing the drive was my final solution. (A new CD/DVD burner is under $20; thus it wasn't worth my time to fix the mechanism on a 5+ year old optical drive.)

Some Lite-On (and related OEM) drives develop this problem early. For these drives, the problem is that the magnet that holds the optical disc in place actually blocks the drive tray. The solution that some find works, is to remove the optical drive and open the outer-case of the unit. (This should be avoided if the drive is still under warranty.) There is a circular section in the case and that is the section that you want to access. Pull out the magnet and make two circles of duct tape just slightly smaller than the magnet. Stick a nail through the center of the circles. (You need the hole to make sure that it still functions correctly. The circles are smaller than the magnet to avoid getting adhesive inside the optical drive.) Stick one of the circles to the magnet (and then put the second circle on top of that). Replace the magnet and close the case of the optical drive. Replace the drive in the computer. Plug in the data and power cables and close the computer back up. Make sure that the data cable is still firmly connected to the motherboard before closing the case. (Note: be careful to stay grounded relative to the computer case when you remove the drive and then replace it.)

The SE-S164L is an external drive, so you may not have given the correct model. Please add a comment with the model optical drive in your computer. Slot-loading drives require a different trouble-shooting routine.

I hope this helps.

You have to check the sound settings on your PC. Don't know which O/S you have but with windows Xp, click on Start - Control panel - Sound and audio devices - Volume - Advanced. Check the CD player is included in the volume control, and not muted. If not in the volume control, click on properties and add it.

Hi.

Is it being detected by Windows?

Try to do this:
  • Start the Run Command Prompt
  • Type in "regedit" without the parrenthesis then click ok
  • Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
  • Then SYSTEM
  • Then CURRENT CONTROL SET
  • Then CONTROL
  • Then CLASS
  • Then find {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  • The whole thing looks like this:
  • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  • Then delete the upper and lower filters
Let me know what happens.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

you can at least get the drawer open and take out the disc by 1) detach power 2) straighten a paperclip and push it through the small hole just above the green indicator lamp below the drawer. If you figure out the next step pls tell me!
