Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

You might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd computer then plug them back in restart your this should activate the found new hardware wizard.

If there is a small hole on the panel of your dvd drive push a straightened paper clip inside until you feel it press down this will open up the drive.

Having trouble with my DVD RW Device its not reconizing any of audio CD or DVD CD on my computer its showing that it wants to come on I also have my computer set on Auto Play it not reconizing it at all if...


get a CD/DVD cleaner. This is a CD with a small brush embedded into it. This will clean the dust from the laser lens. I've used one to restore drives over the past 20 years. Unfortunately, if this doesn't work, you may have to purchase a new drive.
You can get the cleaner at Radio Shack or Wal-Mart.

Good Luck,
Mark

you will do, cd writers will not write to a dvd. you can either replace your cd writer with a dvd-rw drive (dvd-rw drives will also write to cd) or you can get an external usb dvd drive.

What happened on mine:
1. Over time, my laptop's dvd drive was getting harder and harder to open.
2.One day it didn't open at all but the paperclip thingy didn't work, so I had to use my pen knife but that snapped the cable.
I had to get a new one from ebay.

Pioneer DVD R/RW drive DVR-K17LA not reading


Normally no drivers are needed for CD drives other than the ones built into Windows. It might be a dirty lens that is causing the trouble. When the tray opens on a laptop CD drive the lens is exposed and can get touched or exposed to dirt. Try gently cleaning it with a cotton swab to brush off the lens. If the problem continues, the laser may have worn out and is too weak to read now. You can find replacement drives online, or use a USB plug-in external drive.

DVD CD-R drive does not recognize a blank CD on toshiba sattelite


Try this before you enter disk.
  1. setup software or files to transfer when prompted to enter CDR, then place in drive.
  2. Or open my computer, select cd drive right click select, format disk. When prompt comes up for disk insert CDR.
Some systems have trouble with other manufactured formatted disk.
