Why will my cd rom not burn cds but will work to play them?


If its just a cd rom then it was'nt made to burn cds, if it has cd-rw on the faceplate then it should burn them.Since I cant see it I can only guess.If its a cd rom / cd-rw then try updating your cd drivers this may help. Good luck.

Dvd does not work. Light blinks but not seeing it . is there a driver i need or what do i do to fix this


You must determine if the problem is the media you are using (CD, DVD) or the drive itself. (CD/DVD Rom)
First see if the driver is installed for the CD/DVD ROM by Right clicking My Computer and choosing Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Clikc the plus sign next to DVD/CD Rom Drives to see if there is a yellow exclamation point, or question mark. This means you need to install the correct driver. If there are no yellow exclamation marks or question marks your driver is installed properly.
Next try playing difffernt CD's to see if any of them work. Confirm they are good CD's by playing them on another device, then try them on your Compaq. If the Cd's play on another device you may possibly be experiencing read errors on the CD/DVD Rom drive. Try using a CD Laser Cleaner that will clean the laser head of the CD /DVD Rom. it looks like a CD with small brushes on the music side. This may solve a read error problem. if that does not solve your problem you may need to replace the CD/DVD Rom drive.

O.K. now that I installed my DVD/CD Rom it will


i think this is a common problem we encounter when DVD rom lens is becoming faulty. it can only read cd but not DVD then after some time wont read any disk at all. if your drive still has store warranty it would be best to claim the warranty. i tried fixing this kinda problem but it cost me almost the price of a new 1 LOL.

Computer problem


if the code-10 is in device manager it usually means 1 of 2 things:
1) the drivers installed are the wrong ones
2) the cd/dvd drive needs replacing

if the drive is removable, remove it and reinsert it to see if it is just a bad connection. if it was working before and is no longer working, the drive may need replacing. if it was working before and died after a system or driver update, use "roll back driver" in the device manager properties box for the dvd drive.

hope this helps,
trin
