My cdrom makes noise when i insert dvd


What type of noise does it make? If you hear the tray close and then the disc "spin" for a minute or so, that is normal. If it sounds like something is shaking or rattling or lasts more than 5 minutes, there is probably something wrong.

If it is an extended spin noise, the drive isn't recognizing the disc. Check if there are scratches and try another disc. If you hear a shaking or rattling, do not use the drive. It's probably better to replace the drive (check if it is under warranty - usually 1 year). This drive has an IDE connection. You will need to check your motherboard specifications to identify if you can replace the drive with a SATA optical drive (more common now) or if you need to find an IDE drive. (Note: OEM drives do not ship with the data cables or software discs, this will matter if you get a SATA drive.)

Some optical drives have a problem with the magnet that holds the disc for the laser to hold it. Some people fix this problem with duct tape; at <$20 for a SATA DVD-RW OEM drive, it isn't worth my time to fix.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment describing your sound and the computer you have for additional help.

My burner don't recognize the blank disc


Good day,

One of the reasons why a CD drive won't recognise a disc is if d disc is corrupt or not good again. I'll suggest that you buy another one and see if the cd drive will see it. If not, try putting a non-empty disc (either a movie disc) and see if it works. If it doesn't, then d burner might have a little problem.
But if it does work, please feel free to reply.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Sounds like you need to install a DVD decoder, Roxio, WinDVD and PowerDVD are good decoders.

Set-up not working on sony dvd


After reformatting a computer, inserting an optical disc into a drive will not allow it to autoplay (there is no operating system to take control of the situation). If the disc is bootable and the BIOS is configured to allow booting from an optical drive, restarting the machine with the disc in it should allow the system to boot off of that disc. If this is the problem you are trying to describe, press whatever key (F2, F12, Del, etc) allows you to enter your BIOS setup program and ensure that your computer will attempt to boot from your CD/DVD drive, save your changes, and allow the computer to reboot. This should solve the issue.

Sony drive how do you insert disc?


No such thing as a stupid question! There will be some type of button beside the drive drawer. If not, click on my computer, right click on dvd/cd drive, could be called drive E but that is different for different machines. Select eject. The drive drawer will open so you can put the disk in.
