I just fixed a problem I had with my cd-rom where it wasn't burning my cd's. I downloaded the ASPI Driver for Windows from here and it fixed my problem. Without that driver, your cd-rom doesn't get fully reconized by the system basically. Let me know if this helps.

Hi,

I believe we need drivers for CD ROM if both laptop are of same models. Can you plese insert the faulty CD ROM to your laptop and verify whether it is working or not. If yes, then you'll have take your daughter's laptop to service center. Could be a problem with mother board.

Please come back and give ratings to my solution if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification.
Thnx

CD-ROM drive doesn't acknowledge DVD-ROM, what's wrong?


CD-ROMs dont play dvd becuase they are not designed to read dvd.

If a dvd drive for your model is not available, you can buy an external usb dvd drive.
That should solve your problem

Replace the Cd-rom drive, sounds like you may have a bad spindle motor and or Laser assembly. Cd-roms are very cheap these days, and you might consider replacing it with a DVD drive instead, which is downward compatiable.

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.

CD ROM Won't work


First you want to make sure the CD you are using is good. Try a different CD-ROM, a known good one. If a different CD-ROM is readable then the problem is with your CD media and not the CD-ROM Drive. If another known good CD does not work then the problem is with the drive.

To fix this you must purchase a new CD-ROM drive and install it. Newegg.com has great deals. If you only want to read CDs and are not interested in burning then you can get a name brand CD-ROM drive for around $15.00, but if you need to burn as well the CD+-RW will run you about $30.00.

If you are using Windows XP then it is pretty simple to install the new CD-ROM drive.
