No all cds/dvd work in all cd/dvd drives. I suspect your drive cannot read that make of cd although anothers cd rom can. Try making a copy of the disk on someone elses pc and try that in yours and you will probably find it works. You could always copy the cd to a pen drive and install it on yours from that.

DVD-RW burn drive is being recognized as CD-rom drive; it's not the laser, because I went through the trouble of purchasing a brand new DVD burner drive and it's doing the same exact thing. Can anybody...


Hello,

If you have not done so, under device manager, remove the dvd rom (cd-rom) from the hardware list, Use the CD install disk that come with your DVD-ROM, install the drivers and software, then reboot your pc and let it install the new hardware detected. This should get you going.

Good Luck

I cant play a disc or DVD


Hello,

Please try to reboot your laptop then go to CMOS Settings and detect the CD/DVD Rom and try to see if it is detected by your system. If it is detect ted then exit CMOS Settings and then load the Operating system you have and ope the DVD/CD Rom you have. But if it does not detect the DVD/CD Rom then i advice you to find a computer technician to help you fix the problem cause hardware problem is the main reason why it does not detect the disk drive you have, its either the connection bus is not properly plug or the Disk drive is damage or not functioning well.

Thanks

Display Dvd Rom


Hello my friend, please try to reboot your computer then goto CMOS and check if the DVD Rom that you have is detected by your system. If it does not detect then you can manually detect a device using CMOS function. Also try to check if the connectivity of your DVD Rom is not diabled otherwise enable it to detect your device. If all the above steps you followed then the result is still the same then please find a computer technician in your place then let him open and fix the problem.

If you need more assistance my friend please reply to this post.

Thank you.

No DVD-ROM boot


If you have put a Windows system disc in your dvd drive, then re boot your pc should find your cd then say press enter, but if it's stopping before you get there, an error has occured. Did you hear 2 beeps(not together) Go back into the bios and go into the 'standard cmos settings' and at the bottom you will see a line saying 'halt on all errors'. Also check that your HD drives are listed as they should be; and not an old drive, if you have changed your drive that is. Dissable this and save settings and try booting again to your dvd drive.
