Dvd drive won't read disks


Hi,

If it used to work but now doesn't and you have changed nothing then the following will help.

You can try a CD Laser cleaning kit, you put a liquid on a disc and put it in the dvd drive.
It will clean the laser, hopefully this will work.

If it still doesnt work its most likely at the end of its life.

Try a Music CD, a DVD, and any other discs, make sure the discs aren't scratched.

DVD drives are extremly cheap these days,
I got a Sony DVD Writers for £18 delivered from Play.com

Its very simple to fit,
Switch off PC
Just take of side of the PC Case
Unscrew the 2 screws on each side of the dvd player, disconnect the wires .
Then fit the new one

The PC will pick it up after a restart and it wont need drivers

Goodluck

Having a problem with windows media player. I put in a cd and try to get it to rip and it comes back and tells me to put in a disc. I put a disc in to play and it tells me to put in a disc. It is like it...


Does it only happen in Windows media player? If it does try gettting the updated version of media player. if it happens in other applications try changing the dics. If that doesnt work, you need to delete the lower and upper filters in the registry *Note* if you are not really comfortable in doing that then dont, Wrong move in the registry can mess up the operating system, here is the link how to delete the lower and upper filters

if these doesnt work uninstall then reinstall the driver for the optical drive..

try also getting an update from your computer manufacturer. update for the optical drive, or BIOS

lastly, try reinstalling the operating system, if these doesnt work change the optical drive because its a hardware issue..

Disc wont even load up, disc drive used to work but done a system reboot and now not, tried changing disc drives and that doesnt work.


hi there, it may be that the drivers for your CD/DVD drive may be erased. Go of Acer's website and see if they have your disk drives drivers and install them.

Wont read or recognise there is acd inserted


When you open my computer do you see the drive in the window? If the drive does not show up in this window you can check two things, check to be sure that the cable connecting the drive to the mother board is good. And the other issue could be that the drive itself has gone bad. If it is unable to read any cd's then you probably need a new drive. Be sure to put in several cd's to be sure it is not the cd disk.

DVD-ROM drive not working


Hi there.
It sounds like the lens on F drive has gone as i cannot read disks, there is nothing you can do about this once the lens has give up.
The best thing you can do now is remove it from the desktop and just carry on using the DVD/RW as this is the only optical drive you need because it reads and writes DVD's and CD's.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

CD drive doesnt recognize a dvd


Sorry to say, but a CD drive cannot read DVD's. You need a DVD reader. Thus, the CD drive will not recognize DVD media and tell you no valid disc is in the drive. I recommend buying a DVD RW (reader/writer), as they are inexpensive and enable you to burn DVDs as well as read them.

HP CD Drive Will Not Open


Take a pin/needle, and stick it in the small hole which should be somewhere on the front of the dvd rom. This should open the drive a bit, so that u can pull it out. then close it, and try if it opens then. If it doesnt, then you will have to grease the sides of the slide (from the bottom) a bit with vaseline. open and close it manualy a few times, and try then. If it still dont work then, then you may need to replace the little black bellt which it has just underneath the tray, towards the front of the drive.

Good luck

Okay. Restart your computer and after, go to device manager (right-click on My Computer/Properties/Material/Device manager). Do you see a CD-Rom/DVD drive?

My Computer Wont Read DvD's or CDs!


Is the CD drive display in my computer? yes

then clean up your CD/DVD rom for there is dust in it, specially on the lazer lens that let the rom read the CD/DVD.

If no, then; Fix some cable connection towards your CD/DVD rom for it was lessen.

If not fix the problem verify the disc if it is readble by your Rom. Please try another disc in your Rom.

if same happen, then maybe its time for a new CD/DVD ROM.

one last try:

try your new purcahse disc in another computer that is compatible with your disc.

hope this help, melnavz
