Try deleting it in the device manager and then reboot your computer to see if it will detect it, then when it asks, point it to the driver.

    Addendum: If it isn't recognized, try the Add New Hardware from the control panel. And make sure the driver update is compatible with your OS.

Need help instaling photo exploision deluxe 4.0 when i put the dvd in my driver.. it just says .. no **** in driver.. nothing happens!!! help !!


Do other CD work? If yes, you have a bad Photo Explosion CD.
If no, then you have a bad CD/DVD drive. You can get a new one for $30 if this is a desktop pc. If you have a laptop an external dvd drive would be the best option if you don't use the DVD drive very often.

Problem with DVD/CD-Rom drive


Right click on the device name and select properties and you'll open a window with access to enable the device or open the troubleshooter.
Sometimes if you disable, reboot and enable plug & play will reinstall the device.
If your drivers have been corrupted you may be able to roll them back and then update once the drives are working.
You might want to take a trip to windows update and see if it will detect the error and offer you a fix.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

CD/DVD rom drive not working


Hi there.
It sounds like the drivers could be bad or the lens has gone.
This can be a common problem with vista loosing the CD/DVD drives.
Do this >>>>>> right click on "computer" and select "manage" from the sub menu, then select "device manager" from the left hand side, it will generate a list of devices, look down the list for CD/DVD and click on the + icon next to it, from the drop down list right click and uninstall, restart the PC and let vista re-install the drivers for you, then try to use the CD/DVD.
If this does not work please post back.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

How can I tell if my comuter has a DVD/CD drive or just a CD drive?


Normally, the front edge of the Drive tray will indicate CD, CD-RW, DVD or DVD-RW.

You can also check in Device Manager inside Windows (Press the Windows Flag Key+Pause Key, Hardware Tab, Device Manager button) Click the + next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives, and see what model drive is listed. If DVD isn't part of the drive model, it is a CD drive only.

Cd/rom not working


rub1 hello,

It seems like a hardware problem with your cd/DVD drive.
I suggest trying to use Windows Update, perhaps there is a driver conflict.
Try to update the drivers on everything, and see if this works.
If not, try rolling back the driver for the drive.
If none of that works, enter the BIOS by pressing F1 when your computer starts (before Windows gets on).
There, check if DVD/CD drive is Enabled or Disabled.
If it is disabled, it might indicate a hardware failure. Then, if warranty is still applicable, I would suggest sending your laptop to a service provider near you.

Cd Drive Doesn't work anymore.


Okay. Restart your computer and after, go to device manager (right-click on My Computer/Properties/Material/Device manager). Do you see a CD-Rom/DVD drive?
