Usually, there are 3 causes for this :
1) A virus can cause the problem. Updated and run your Anti-virus software in Safe Mode.
(Free AVG 8.0 is a great virus protection program)

2) Power off the computer:
The cable going from the CDROM to the system board may be loose, reseat it and restart the computer.

3) the CDROM drive may be malfunctioning.

File will not rewrite to cd, computer does not reconize cd installed


Can it play a music CD or retrieve data from an existing one?
You can click start, my computer and at least see if your DVD
drive (D: usually) is there. If the inserted DVD or CD is good, it
will show free and used space. Your drive may have gone bad.
Some computer centers have walk in clinics and may be able
to determine that.

My satellite won't recognize a cd/dvd drive when I open up my computer there isn't a drive at all how can I fix this


If you don't have a cd/dvd rom drive installed on your laptop then of course your laptop would not reconize a cd/dvd rom. Is you laptop a Netbook, usually netbook does not come with a cd/dvd drive. To solve this case, you will need to buy an external cd/dvd drive and hook it up via USB.

No sound output and will not reconize Dvd's, but will reconize cd's


I'll take that as a no,

In fact the default for most types of media is media player but it doesn't include all of the relevant codex's you require for every type of media by default.

Most manufacturers include this software with their computers/DVDROM's but not always.

The reason I assume it is your codex not being installed is simple, you can play CD's, that means the drive works, media player works, sound card works and speakers work. The only common problem that would cause this is a missing or corrupted codex.

try something for me and let me know if it solves the problem.

Install VLC player http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

Then try to play the DVD using VLC player. If it asks to update itself, let it.

Comment back here once you have tried and let me know how you make out.

Won't reconize DVD burner


Well, the CD ribon cable goes into the IDE 2 slot on the Mainboard and the furthest connector on the other end is the master, the second one closest to the board is the Slave connector. The CD drive has a jumper on the back between where the ribbon and the power connector go, on the case some where it should have a diagram showing the jumper setting to put it in as master or slave. Set it accordingly.

Same with Hard drives.

If the Hard drive has a diferent Cable like a SATA, then be sure to get a SATA as the new one.

Now the IDE cables may be bad check them for damage just to be on the safe side.
