Try removing and inserting the DVD drive in your computer, it may need reseating to work again. If this does not work then it may be faulty because you dropped the computer and you will need to replace it to get a the DVD player working..

Cd/dvd drive device driver missing when installing windows 7 ony my HP G72-B62US notebook

I'll recommend you to directly try Driver Detective and let the software have a free scan to automatically detect & update the missing drivers. This way things can be much easier & efficient. Also you don't have to risk install wrong drivers which might cause severe system issues.

best regards & good luck!

How can i update my video card driver nec nd-6650a

Not to worry as you can get the job done on your own.

First of all you need to know what video card you have. If you have Windows and I assume you do go to Start > Control Panel (switch to classic view) > System click on Device Manager and in the list find 'Display Adapter'. The name of the driver appears. Make a note of it. Go directly to the website of your driver's manufacturer. Follow the instructions to download and install the right driver. Restart your computer to let it take effect.

Warning: this is the manual way to update. If you are not a tech guy, attempting to change video drivers could make your computer inoperable or cause severe problems. As a result, you can rely on a drive detective software to help fix the driver issue automatically & accurately. This way also saves you time & energy.

What causes a dvd player to say no disc

Dirty DVD's cause the 'read' sensor optics in the DVD player to become 'dirty' and hence unable to interpret the digital bits on your other DVD's.
Buy and use a DVD cleaner disk kit from Radio Shack.

Cd player not responding

Look for firmware at the manufacturer's website. Did you check in 'hardware' for problems? You can try reinstalling the driver there.
Right click on 'my computer' > properties > hardware > device manager > double click on your cdrom.Many third-party programs that control CD or DVD burning (as well as some player applications) install CD- or DVD-ROM filter device drivers into Windows. These filter drivers are meant to allow for low-level hooks into the hardware, to allow for functions such as packet writing (where a CD-R/W or DVD-/+RW can be written incrementally, like a hard disk).

These filter drivers sometimes have problems that can cause the CD or DVD drive to stop working correctly. The device entry for the CD or DVD drive in the Device Manager may show up with an error descriptor that reads "The device could not start." Additionally, there may be an error message that reads "One of the filter drivers for this device is invalid." The devices themselves do not show up in Explorer. Error codes for the device include code 31, code 32, code 19 or code 39, and sometimes the even more ominous warning "Your registry might be corrupted" appears.

Fixing the problem simply involves deleting the filter entries for the third-party device drivers. These entries can sometimes become damaged (which is what produces the "corrupt registry" warning).

To delete the offending keys, open the Registry and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCl ***\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. . Delete the keys named UpperFilters and LowerFilters and reboot.

Several of the products made by Roxio are infamous for causing this problem, although in fairness to the company the most recent versions of their Roxio CD/DVD writing software (6.2 and higher) do not have these problems. Users of 5.0 or 6.0 editions of the Easy CD & DVD Creator product, which has been bundled with many new PCs in the past, should upgrade to 6.2 or better. Other programs can also cause this problem, with the same solution.

Note that after you do this, you may lose functionality in the program that uses the filter drivers, which may need to be reinstalled.Go to device manager:

When in device manager, look for:

IDE ATA ATA/ATAPI controllers

click on plus sign to expand the tree

right click on the IDE controller that is handling the CD/DVD drive in question

select uninstall

reboot your computer

I have a SAmsung HTZ310R home cimema system and recently been experiencing audio drop out. I stream movies from my PS3, and play BD's, watch DVD's. Havent had any issues until recently, when sound started...

Sounds like a couple of coincidental but unrelated symptoms.

Optical cables need precise seating and no tight bends.

Muffled, channel-specific sound is usually on the analog end. Speaker connections maybe.

Samsung DVD writer suddenly not working.

Hi there..

I can understand the issue.

There are 2 ways to fix this up..


Check whether the drive is listed in My Computer or not.
If its not detected then reboot the computer and get into BIOS.
Check whether CD driver is detected in BIOS.
If its not then i'd say please try to swap the cable between HDD & CD drive and restart the computer.
Check whether the computer is booting or not.
If not we can come to the conclusion that the drive is gone bad.


Check whether the drive is listed in My Computer or not.
If the drive is listed in My Computer and still not working.
Then i'd say please go to SERVICES.MSC
Locate for the option IMAPI CD-BURNING service and right click on the option.
Go to properties and start the process and make the startup as Automatic. I've given the screenshot here.. Kindly go through it..



Click on start and now you reboot the computer and now check in My Computer whether you see CD Drive.


The next step which we are going to follow up is very important.


Locate for the upper filter & Lower filter. Here is the location for finding the upper and lower filter..

After you click on the 4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318 option take a look on the right side you can find upper & lower filter.

Delete it & Restart the computer and now you are offset..

CAUTION: Use Registry Editor at your own risk. Any change using Registry Editor may cause severe and irreparable damage and may require you to reinstall your operating system. Internet Security Systems cannot guarantee that problems caused by the use of Registry Editor can be solved.

This issue comes up due to many reasons..

2. Codec not available.. Try in a different media player..(E.g> KM player, VLC player, GOM player, KL mega codec)
3. Check the DVD in a diff computer/Laptop or toa DVD player connected to a TV set.

Sol for issue 1: You can get latest & official drivers from your computer manufaxcturer's site or you may opt for some third party driver agents available(Google it)

Sol for issue 2: All the players i mentioned are free apps.. So download and try it..

Sol for 3: If DVD plays fine in a diff machine, then issue with your computer.. if it fails to play in diff computer's then its purely a faulty DVD.
