click start Control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to cd/dvd rom drives + to expand could be a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click update drivers

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd rom then plug them back in this will activate found new hardware wizard

you need only do the registry check if you cant see the drive/s in windows explorer/my computer

to check the registry
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

SYSTEM

CurrentControlSet

Control

Class

{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.


hope this helps you

SOURCE: dvd drive detection problem

I have an hp dv2422la with the same problem and just discovered something after trying many solutions with drivers and configuration. It is a problem of the fisical design of the dvd rom, If you open it by stiking a wire or stick in the little hole you will be able to open the drive and realize the cable under the cd carriage is maybe the same way that mine. It is not secured enogh and it is bent and scracht so that the information to the computer is going crazy, sometimes works and some others not, am I right or not?????? let me know please

SOURCE: Windows Media Center cannot detect a video DVD in

Unless you use a DVD player software like power dvd or others, you can not watch dvd on your media player. This is a copywrite and license related issue. DVD players are paid players and this is why, microsoft can not include it on windows.

If you are not willing to buy a player now, try vlc media player instad (click here to get ) . Its free ofcource.

You have done all thing I would have suggested and if the BIOS does not detect this DVD drive then it is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the BIOS detects the DVD drive then the DVD driver needs re-installing.
You can download the DVD and device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page. Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers. Please click on this link: - http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp

My drive wont read anything. I am trying to install MS office from a DVD. my device manager says it's working properly and I tried the Microsoft Fixit and that didn't work


Hi,

Device Manager states that it is working properly because it is detected by the computer. However, device manager has no capability of check if there's a problem with the lense of the DVD Drive. You can try a diffent CD to check if the problem is with the MS office CD or with the drive. If the DVD Drive still cant read any other disk it only means that it has a bad lense and you need to replace the DVD Drive.

Thanks for using Fixya.
