My Cd/DVD burner has disappeared I have tried deleting the upper and lower filters and it still doesn't show up the tray opens the light comes on but it's not usable or found anywhere I have an HP...


Try this:

I have to ask, after deleting the upper & lower filters did you reboot the PC?

If so try this:
Go to:
Start>(right click on Computer)left click on Manage.
Left click on Device Manager
Locate your DVD/CD-Rom drives.
Right Click on the DVD/CD Rom-drive> uninstall Now reboot the PC.

If the drive does not come back in Computer> devices with removeable storage go back to Device Manager (Start>right click computer>Device Manager) to see if you can see DVD/CD Rom-drive.If you dont see the drive in this location then it sounds as if your DVD/CDRom-drive is no longer working and you will have to replace it.

Good luck!

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-SZ230P. It has a Matshita UJ-842D. It was working fine until today. The drive shows up under 'My Computer' and 'Device Manager' however when I put in a CD or DVD it doesn't do...


Sounds like it is your power supply going. I know this sounds way off base. But I have seen it many times. First this happens with the CD or DVD as they have are lower on the list for power allocation than other devices for power. If this is it next the hard drive will stop responding. This has been my experience in these matters. It might be the drive but I would say 70% chance of power supply.30% chance of drive.

Registry edits not usually a good idea. System restore is your friend. Some DVD burning apps will change your registry and cause the CD/DVD to disappear. Uninstall the new burning app, or system restore to a time you know it was working.

Dvd plays initially and then stops


Hi,
It could be the drivers for CD/DVD.
The best way to troubleshoot this is right click on computer, select manage. A new window will pop up, in that list select device manager.
Look in the list for CD/DVD drives and click on the + sign next to it, when the tree opens right click on the CD/DVD drive and select uninstall, then restart the PC.

This method will hard reset the system and force windows to load the default drivers for the CD/DVD upon restart. Hopefully this should resolve your problem.
If not please post back.

Good luck

DVD burner problem


hi DARBAIL!
I have the same unit like you. I Have experienced that the cd/ dvd burner doesn't work because cables might have loosen up. Check the IDE cable if it was connected properly. Try to Check also the burner eg. Nero maybe it was not installed properly. Check the installation settings If it was installed completely. Try to check also the system of your computers may be the Direct X component was not installed.

If you have tune up utilities, Try to Check it properly using the device manager if it was installed in your system.

Lastly, after you have tried all of this but nothing is happening. Your unit CD/ DVD has faulted. Better buy a new one.

Dvd-rom not playing/recognizing dvds but plays cds


Yes your quite right, the solution to the problem is a new writer, although you have to get the same one if it's fitted internally to a notebook. You can update the firmware, thats not a problem, you may be getting confused with bios updates which are a knightmare. I assume you have tried the usual, uninstal and re install of the dvd drive, by uninstalling it in device manager on the cd/dvd drive line and click '+' sign, right click and uninstal, then restart pc to automatically install again. The cd recognition says that the drive capability to read and write dvd has corrupted andfailed, so really the only solution would be a new drive

This may not help, But worth trying. First make sure the eide braid is connected firmly on both end and the power cord is pushed in all the way. if all that is okay do a Google search for lite on they have a website with lots of drivers and firmware upgades. Just need to find yours in the list. Good luck
