Ok, have you tried reinstalling the drivers for your CD/DVD ROM? After reinstalling reboot the system if this doesn't work chances are it could be a hardware problem.

Hope this helps:)

I HAVE PROBLEMS WITH MY ACER ASPIRE M1100 COMPUTER,WHICH I PURCHASED IN 2008. SPECIFICALLY, THE DVD RAM IS NOT FUNCTIONAL AT ALL. THE CD RAM HOWEVER, IS WORKING JUST FINE. PLEASE, HELP ME FIX THIS...


You better check the DVD if this is recognized by going to My computer > Device manager > DVD/CD-ROM drive and see if mark as ( ? ) question mark. also check the IDE slot as well as cable if its properly attach or insert,try to change IDE cable at least. Check the power supply socket all going thru your DVD, might no supply or power entering the drive that's why it's not recognized.



Good luck.

I got my dell vostro a860 in june 2009 ...now my problem is taht my cd/dvd doesn't work....sometimes i see it in my computer and device manage/but sometimes i don't...I bought 2 dell vostro A860...on one...


first try this fixit tool

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060

If that doesn't work, try swapping the drives between the systems and see if the issue follows the drive. If the issue follows the drive, replace it.

If the issue stays with the system, then it is either SW (the fixit link should help) or the MB contacts for the drive are bad.

Sometimes the DVD drive will not open. It is fairly annoying.


Sir,
Go to My Computer and right clicked on the DVD Rom drive and clicked eject. If any error appears let me know. Also try to insert a straightened paper clip into the designated hole on the CD/DVD drive casing to manually force an eject. If it is not worked replace the cables(master slave).
Thanks Good Luck
